    Sorry I should have said, ko3. Didn't think there would be much change but 30-40 is ok and on longish runs I've seen 37 and once had 42! Was driving like I was dead though lol. I've never noticed any difference with vpower. Not even on performance.

    Thanks anyway guys.

    I have on a mapped 8L....only by using my lil strip of test road..... using 95 ron from a 20-100 sprint reduced my terminal speed by around 10mph... i think the ECU was retarding the timing due to the lack of high octane fuel - i used to rebel but have seen the light, presume it will be the same for most cars, especially if mapped

    One things for certain, my new S3 won't be running on that piss water 95

    I noticed a definite performance increase in my 1.6 with VPower. Less so on my 2.0T, but still enough of an improvement in my fuel economy to make it justified.

    My 2.0T gives me 27.3mpg. That's by actually calculating it, not the trip computer - and all city driving.

    I'm getting a long-term average (10,000 miles) of 29.2 showing on my DIS trip computer. That's really not bad considering that most of my journeys are urban and that it's a quattro running a map.

    My trip averages are usually around 25mpg around town and around the 35mpg mark on long runs. I wouldn't recommend a 2.0T on fuel economy alone, but it's good for what it is.

    I'm still amazed by the difference driving style makes to the mpg in this car.
    I got my best return from a tank the other day too.... 330 miles.
    Comparing that to my worst.... 220 miles.... there's a potential of 50% more miles depending on how heavy my foot is.

    yeah if you're constantly driving on boost your fuel economy plummets - and it doesn't make enough of a difference to your average speed to make your trip any shorter if you drive with a heavy foot lol

    Guys, sorry to bump an old thread...

    having a problem with my MY2010 2.0T A3..

    Driving in the city best consumption i can hope for is around 18-19mpg.. (that's 7.5-7.7 km/l)

    VCDS scan is error free. Car drives beautifully - can't complain. Oh, and it's OEM.

    I know that the plugs/fuel filter were never changed, so this is my next step. Are those two the immediate suspects or should i look into more things ?

    i get same mpg around city but thats including letting the engine warm up in town. if i warm the engine up on motorway then drive trough town can see up to 24mpg. also i would reccomend some bg44k fuel adative and injection cleaner, you get it for a score from quick fit and it has increased my motorway mileage from 28 to 30 sitting at 75/80 mph

    you mean you get around 18-19 driving in the city ?
    So this is considered normal ?
    I am already hunting for a new MAF,and that thing is expensive, please stop me :D

    i am seeing about 23 on a highway. problem is, my car 99% of the time does short commutes inside the city, 5-8km each drive the most.
    I only took it on a highway once and i wasn't driving conservatively

    Hang on... Are you from the US? Isn't the US gallon different to the UK? We could be giving incorrect comparisons!

    Crap, i made a mistake..

    I am actually from Brazil and we measure consumption by km/l.

    So for reference, my car is doing around 7.5 km/l.
    Using google conversion, i did make a mistake by converting it to US MPG.
    Now converting to imperial mpg 7.5 km/l = 21.1 mpg.
    Does that sound more normal, still seems on the low side to me... Esp. comparing to jb0o's numbers.

    That sounds more normal for short journeys to be honest. You should see early 30's mpg on a run.....

    I was getting about 150 to 180 miles per full tank of Shell Vpower, mostly city driving and A roads, pretty much caining it all the time as I would go out at 2am ish when there is no traffic on the roads.

    Having said that driving from Yorkshire to Cornwall it did 380 miles to a full tank of Asda petrol (before I discovered it had stage 2 parts and vv likely remap).

    i am getting around 200-210 100% in the city short commutes of about 4-5 miles each.
    I still think the consumption should be better, and this is why i have ordered a new MAF and spark plugs.

    I usually only fill up when the light comes on, I also reset the no 2 trip timer at the same time I reset the no 2 trip mileage, so if it's showing over about 10 hours for a tankful I know the girlfriend and I have been doing predominantly town mileage but even then I expect the trip to read more than 250 miles, about 25 mpg. If it's a sub 9 hour reading I might get over 300 miles, 30 mpg.
