    Well I cant be bothered working it out but I drove to see my girl in Birstol lastnight, filled the car right up and drove up there faily normally, may have driven a bit faster on the way home but it was 4am lol

    From a full tank I had 130 miles left, having driven for a total of 3hours 50minutes at an average speed of 65mph (Went the A-Roads up there and M5/4/3 home) and averaged 27.8mpg apparently!

    big turbo mpg

    Don't know how many people on here are running big turbos.
    But what sort of mpg figures are you guys seeing?

    I think my mpg has become worse after the conversion, where I've been told that infact it should be better. I think the bigger injectors don't help.

    When cruising at 80... err..I mean around 70 Mph, I get about 26mpg on my DIS, whereas before I was easily getting 32/33 mpg.
    My DIS has been recalibrated, mind.

    But I think I get like 100 miles to 20 (which by todays prices is like 18 litres).
    That's pretty rubbish I think. My bike does 100 miles on about a tenner....

    Hey Kitey, sorry to sound so negative at the moment. I think there's probably many things clouding the benefits of my BT conversion.

    The list of issues with the car are still outstanding, and I don't think I can properly enjoy the conversion until they are sorted, and the car is running the power it should be.

    Also, fuel prices are astronomical now, so perhaps the reduced miles I'm getting are a consequence of that, and not the turbo.

    Once it's running optimum boost, I'll let you know what I really think eh.
    You're in MK I see too, so Backdraft is on your doorstep.

    I just recently completed another record attempt and got 450 miles out of tank with 10 miles left on the DIS. My best ever was 460 measured. I will get 500 one day. Anyway that was driving like a complete twat at 65 on cruise control everywhere.

    Thing is my DIS says an average of 37.5mpg which is bull****. I work it out as 33mpg which is **** after driving like a granny.

    Anyway normal driving regulary gets me a tank of 360-400 miles (28mpg) and blasting it everywhere gets me at least 300 miles.

    30 quid will do me 200 miles -driving around 65 just below 2,500 revs. that's every week to and from work on a dual carriageway. can live with that, however it is so hard to think 'fuel consumption' and not 'foot down and have a hoot!'

    I consistently only get 235miles out of a full tank, so 20 does me approx 80miles.

    The DIS tells me my average consumption is 21mpg, problem is the work run, bad traffic, 4 miles, 1st, 2nd, 3rd if lucky all the way, takes me 30mins!!

    I also drive fairly sensible, if I started twatting it everywhere I reckon I'd drop below 20mpg
    ...could you describe the ruckus sir?

    If i put £50 of normal unleaded on my A4 1.8t sport i used to get a consistent 320 miles....and so far on the S3, my 1st full tank cost me £55 of normal unleaded and i got the same 320 miles....I have now filled up on a full tank of V Power costing £58, so i will keep you posted on what it works out to.

    So to sum things up off £20 i was getting about 128 miles.....

    i do about 300 miles a week, 200 of that on the motorway 100 within citites etc and can do that quite nicely on a full tank and then will cost me about 55ish to fill up again.

    i used to get 80 miles approx to 10 motorway driving so 160 miles to 20

    driving round town etc was 60miles per 10. This will be less now with the more expensive petrol

    im getting an s3 again soon so will miss how good my mk 4 golf tdi 150 is.
    that does 210 miles for 20 on motorway but its boring and i miss the s3

    I'm not really sure how people are working out 20, but after trying to figure out how much I actually spend on fuel the other week and coming in at around 450 in 4 weeks I think it's safe to say I get around 260-300 miles from a tank, which is around 63 of optimax / super however I've been taking the "fun" route to work more of late which doesn't help.

    I have managed to get 400.6miles out of a tank before then running out of petrol, however that was because I had to drive like a granny because of really bag fog on a long journey.

    I can tell a difference, it seems more responsive, but im not too sure as only just got the car, so it might just be me feeling like that....the mpg looks a bit better though, will let you know when im nearing empty if it has made a difference miles wise....

    OK quick update, i finished my full tank of V Power, and i actually ended up getting an extra 40ish miles!!!

    So to say im impressed would be an understatement :-)

    Woohoo, and if you fill up 30 litres of V power at the moment, you can get a free ferarri (toy car)!!!

    Was that from full tazzer, as i was having this discussion the other day, why does the full side of petrol on the gauge always seem to go down faster than the other side of the half, if you know what i mean????
