    Just wondered how everyone is getting on with the MPg from their A3?

    I can only get around 600 miles out of a full tank.

    I'm just able to break 600miles, max i have seen so far was 649miles from 52litres of refill

    What car indicates my A3 has a potenital range of 727miles....... I'm doubting this as a real world range and more like artifical environment.

    I hope around 8k odo the engine should loosen up

    Well thanks to a knackered engine courtesy of a dealer 'repair' how does approx 150 miles to a tank sound?!! And they wonder why I keep sending it back to them!

    Is that from a 1.6tdi? My Friend is currently running on 'coloured' diesel and has gotten 350 miles from half a tank, significantly higher than what I usually get (5/550), once this tank is used up though he's not putting any more coloured stuff into it, have noticed the car slightly smoky at times. Pity too as its only 80ppl

    I'd imagine it works out range based on current mpg, so will always change.

    My BMW 330d would tease me with ranges of 700 miles, but never got close.

    I normally average around the 48 mark as i do quite a lot of town driving with the occasional long journey and short blast

    On my recent holiday to Germany I averaged around 44 mpg for the journey to and from Germany using the French autoroutes and with my cruise control set at 90. Whilst I was just gently driving around the Eifel, Hunsruck and Mosel Valley rarely going above 60 I averaged around 55. Not bad for a 170 hp A3 that at the biginning of the holiday had only done 1500 miles. By the time I got home it had 3800 on the clock.
