    S3 or A3?

    It's about right for an A3.

    It's great for an S3.

    Not really considering its a 15 year old car returning good mpg, unless I'm missing something ?

    Believe it or not mate some of us have seen over 40mpg from a 1.8T on a decent run!

    my old 230bhp daily driver averaged 39mpg on a trip to the Ring a few years back, and my 350bhp track car still averages 35mpg cruising to or from a trackday!

    Fantastically efficient engines the 1.8T's when tuned well

    I do a 235mile trip to get home from camp, and it costs about £42 in petrol, that's with 4/5 lads in the car and a boot full of kit, i also have a heavy foot so I reckon that's decent enough (got an a3T)

    I can quite easily get 45mpg on a run in my 245bhp A3.

    Get it done by Niki at R Tech or Bill at Badger 5; timing advance = more efficiency which = more MPG.

    Me too. ~25-26mpg, mixture of very short journeys and longer motorway missions. I'm sure it'd go down if I was driving like a grandad or did longer journeys. I don't know how people are reporting 40+mpg. Nobody I know with a 1.8T of any sort is getting that :/

    I'm genuinely interested in how people get these figures! I never got 40+ on my A3 TQS, nowhere near that with my S3. Other mates with Mk4 Golfs, A3 1.8Ts and even a NA 1.8 A3 aren't getting that.

    Quattro turd.

    200kg's more, transmission losses. All adds up.

    Every FWD 1.8t I have ever driven easily manages 35mpg+, and as they get tuned they can get even better.

    Mine is 245bhp, 40mpg on a run no problem.
