    The MPG list !

    Right guys, reckon it would be interesting to see what the difference in MPG is across the range of S3's dependant on their spec etc.

    If you can be bothered, reset your taco on the next refill then on the following refill note the number of litres you put in the car along with the millage done.

    Also list, the spec of your engine, to see the effects.

    Mine is an S3, chipped with K+N and turbodynamics re-circ valve

    298 miles for 59.4 litres .................. CRAP ! (MAF possibly duffed !)

    222miles off 50.72litres
    which = 19.9mpg (trip computer read 21.4mpg)

    Was getting between 15 and 20 in the mondeo.

    A lot is down to the fact that i drive 1.5 miles to work every day and i come home at dinner time so thats 30 miles per week on choke just going to work and back, couple that with the fact i am constantly nailing my car everywhere it results in poor MPG.

    Even with two identical cars and the same amount of fuel, there are other variables that make this list a non-starter.

    The driving style of the driver and the type of journey/traffic on each trip.

    Not trying to put a damper on your idea, but the results wouldn't be accurate or useful...

    My DIS is stuck on 27.9mpg, and occasionally goes to 27.8.
    Brim to brim figures using V-power is 22/23mpg mostly town driving, 25mpg average with mixture of town and a-road driving, and 29/30mpg mainly motorway driving at anything between 70-90.

    AmD stage1 remap and 19" wheels.

    obviously !

    Obviously, there are loads of variables, but it will give a ROUGH idea and thats all you can ask. Obviously if someone is getting a particularly high or low MPG then it might be worth wondering why.

    Would be interested to see what folk get.

    If anyone is not interested then don't post, but I wonder who gets the highest and the lowest MPG.

    I usually get about 220-250 out of a tankfull. Funnily enough, the DIS says I'm getting about 27mpg.

    I usually put in 30 a time and i sometimes see 200miles, not very often though!!

    I always complain about it being so crap on fuel but thats just one of the consequences of having a fast car!

    averaging 28.1 so far, had the car a week, but not done many miles apart from the london to edinburgh trek, so thats bumped it up a bit. Does the reset button on the stock just reset average speed and average mpg?

    Most I've ever had is somewhere around 450 miles from Optimax, filled her up with 56 litres (so another 6 litres left in the tank) - I reckon I could have squeezed another 50 miles from that last bit of petrol so would have got 500 miles from that tank. That was almost all motorway driving at around 75mph.

    Normally I get 330 - 350 from a tank.

    If you have the MPG displayed on the DIS and press the reset button it will do exactly that.

    I get on average 250 - 280 to a tank of V Power, just filled up with BP Ultimate see what its like. I do a mix of Town B road and Motorway driving.

    We have to consider what we feel as a full tank though, I personally never drive until the petrol light comes on, it's bad for the car to run it lean, so I generally fill up with around a quarter tank left, by which time, I've usually covered 250ish miles.

    I've had 400.6 miles out of a tank (when it ran out - doh), normal mixed driving is 300-350 and worst is probably more like 200-250 but that was trying to keep up with must faster cars for about 4 hours.

    DIS seems to think around 26mpg think it's about right, mines a standard 210APY.

    Eh.... run it lean ? What ? How does less fuel in the tank mean the mixture is lean ?

    I get about 300 miles to a full tank. DIS shows about 28MPG - I rarely reset it. On a motorway run with no silliness the S3 will do 400 on a tank.

    I get around 250 miles on the shell V power, around 280 on the Esso 97, and so far 225 from a full tank of BP! Very strange how different fuels have such varied miles, my car only has the Miltek system on it no remap!

    standard car, mixed driving (town & a class roads) gives abotu 310 miles to 55 litres of v power.

    I think the Shell fuel is the best performacne fuel out there.

    It doesn't, but the Fuel gauge has been known to be not accurate, it's just a precaution thing from my point of view.

    Do about 300miles on a tank of the old V-Power; gauge sits at 29.3mpg. Predominantly up and down the A34 with a blat here and there down the country roads.

    Read in Evo (Advertisment feature) about the BP Ulitmate 102 and how well it performed and lasted in their tests, extra 20% increase in both performance and mileage. Quite tempted to have a try of this as I have one down the road. However the allure of my V-Power Pluspoints is too much!!

    Yeh it sux, however thats mainly down to the fact that for a while now Ive only been able to drive my car for work commute and its neither of those things causing it to be low. My DIS usually shows an average speed of about 12mph which is why I get the poor MPG, takes 1hr+ for the 8 mile journey to work on school holidays its similar to most others about 270ish from a tank.
