    Right. Who can beat this??

    I was bored on the way home tonight, so I thought I'd switch my DIS onto the instant fuel consumption setting, and was seeing how low I could get it...

    Far be it for me to condone wreckless driving, but I managed to get it down to 6.0mpg [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/lol.gif[/img]

    Can anyone do better? (or worse, depending on your outlook...)

    Was that in a chipped or stock motor? My 6.0 was from a stock 210bhp S3..

    Will have to do some checking with VAG-COM plugged in on my chipped A3T and see what I get... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    You must have jammed the roof half open and filled the boot to capacity (with a single comb and hair crimpers) to get the required air resistance and weight to get that low [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    Err.. surprisingly not - left the crimpers at home [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    And I readily admit I'm very overweight, but not by that much [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
