    400 Miles on a full tank - remapped S3!!!

    Now that I'm using the S3 for business miles, but even I was amazed to get 400 miles from 1 tank of Optimax!!!

    Around 350 miles of the 400 were motorway miles, a constant 75 - 80MPH.

    ......from a guy that's used to getting 250 miles from a tank around town!!

    Most I've ever had on a long dual carriageway / motorway run was, from memory, just under 450 miles, with 40 miles still showing on the range. That was on Optimax, and I've got an MTM rechip.
    I convinced myself that the computer was playing up. Can't remember how much I put in when I filled her up but I'm sure there were a few litres left in the tank. That was cruising between 70 and 80.

    My best so far has been the 400 miles from Lyon to Barcelona on 3/4 tank and 150 left on the DIS. 60-65 all the way - sooooo hard not to put the foot down, but we'd run out of money and couldn't get anymore fuel.

    Yeah I can get 400 on a motorway run. Can get at least 35MPG.

    At the moment I am just doing daily 8 miles to work only and showing 27MPG.

    Overall I'm delighted with the economy of my remapped S3.

    On the motorway runs I get 34 - 36 on the DIS, or 23 - 25 around town.

    However, it is cool when you thrash it and see single figures on the instantaneous readout!

    You fellas obviousily have more respect for the law than me (or maybe it's the remap) but I managed an average of 30ish according to the DIS on my long motorway journey the other week, however it was with 4 people and stuff in the car at anywhere between 0-110 according to the traffic (bloody M1 on a friday) so wasn't just sitting at 70.

    I've never got more than 320miles out of a full tank of Optimax in my S3, this is driving at 80ish mostly motorway, think the 19" wheels are effective fuel consumption by that much?!

    Nah ... my 35MPG figures are only achieved when constant at about 70mph. I rarely do that [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    That sounds about right to me jojo, I got 330 out of a pretty full tank of optimax as described above - I mean who can manage to drive 400 miles without using the lead boot once or twice, I know I cant.

    Very hard I must admit, ESPECIALLY with the remap done. Like I say, I was in no hurry for a change and at a constant 75 - 80 MPH. Different story today though [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Maximum I can get is 27mpg at 75 on motorway using cruise control. Not too impressed with it.

    I think the AMD remap has adversly affected the car. Firstly they took it from 180bhp to only 202bhp and didn't know why it wouldn't go higher!

    Do I have to pay a lot to have the remap removed?
