    I get between 200 and 220 per tank. My car has 6k miles on the clock. Since I have owned it I have done 2500 miles and averaged 24.1mpg over this time.

    Just done a 300 mile round trip to Aviemore.....sat about 65-70mph on the A9. Filled her up before I left and then filled her back up again when near home. Took £40 of super to brim. Not bad economy in my eyes.

    And that was also having a wee play with a TT 3.2 Quattro for the last 10 miles........

    On average, I'm getting about 290 between fill-ups of about £65 / 48 litres (10.75 gallons or so).

    That squares well with the DIS long-term average of about 27mpg for my S3, which to be fair is done on a mix of urban and longer (but speedyish) journeys.

    Some of you boys need to try harder! I'm lucky to see 250 per tank of Vpower.

    I can get as much as 360 miles if the drive in to work is on the slow side,or as little as 300,but there are few places to really use the power,so the torque from a remapped engine makes a huge difference to economy,whereas an unmodded engine relies on being revved a bit.

    Agree with Alex 360 if i drive with the flow but can drop to300 if i gun it. Mapping does make a huge difference but in the end its how you drive it. DSG helps, its usually in the optimum gear.

    My gear change indicator on the manual spends its whole life telling me to be in 6th gear as soon as I exceed about 29 miles an hour. Its been set in taxi mode at factory. Strain on gearbox must be significant for the mpg savings. 361 miles is most even seen on last S3 on a full motorway journey to Scotland at 60mph.

    sounds like you have a heavy goot

    btw 24 mpg on DIS is not accurate... have a look here MPG Calculator.co.uk - Work out your cars Miles Per Gallon

    £75 will get me 550 miles minimum. Oh no hang on I don't have an S3, just dreaming again (although I think it would be a bad dream if I was in the petrol station as much as you lot!)

    Smiles per miles I suppose!

    Regular commuting (50% motorway, 50% around town) gets me 340 to the tank. 75,000 miles so pretty well run in. Economy has got marginally better than that having recently got to Stage 2.

    I did 340miles Yesterday Half motorway M25-M11 and half A roads. I clocked the trip, Got home in exactly 3 hours..170 miles so ave nearly 60mph which is pretty good given the amount of time at traffic lights etc. Time made up on M/way at 90mph on cruise. return trip Ave 31 mpg. Cant grumble at that

    Did 200 miles only using 1/2 tank. Average speed was 90. Had to slow down due to torrential rain

    I only just done a journey in mine with mostly driving to and from work at boring 40 mph speed camera routes. Did 310 miles before I filled up and put about 51 litres in it. Worked out overall at around 27.95 mpg over the whole tank full. I was a bit disappointed tbh BUT like I say the "long run" only equated to 100 miles of the whole tank full and I never thought to check the DIS for that journey's mpg. LOL
    I would like to hope it was over 30 mpg especially when it cost me £69 in V-Power to fill up with! Haha.

    Only seen more than 300 once, and that was down to Glasgow and back. Usually closer to 200, usually just in-town and giving it "note" in 1st/2nd.

    800km a tank in an S3? I doubt it.

    Remap = more use of the mid-range torque rather than the fuel-guzzling top end revs for normal driving.

    As mentioned, once you give it the beans then you're in the fuel-guzzle range whatever you do.
