    I'll have a check next time I'm driving around, maybe a reinstall of the remap might help it - but to be fair the stock mpg of S3's is about 36 anyway and it's only when I'm driving around quickly that it drinks a crazy amount of fuel.

    I also have a 1.6 2003 and mine seems to drink fuel think it must be how the 1.6 is although i also think its how you drive if you keep it at low revs and general crap like that then it will last longer
    If Carlsburg made cars.... It would be an Audi !

    All this sunshine has brought out the motorbikes, so the S3 is showing 15-20mpg.

    In what gear? Revs are only related to speed through the gearbox, not through engine tuning.

    There is DEFINATELY something wrong with my car. I'm not that heavy footed. As a test today I did a trip from Manchester to Sheffield via the M60 and Snake and managed 27.2 ... and I was TRYING to get the highest I could.

    Normal city driving, 16-18mpg.

    the most accurate way to measure your mpg is to brim your tank, reset your trip meter before setting off again, drive for however long you need for it to need refilling, in my case, between 3 and 4 weeks, see how many miles you've covered (around 570 on my tank) then refill and see how many gallons it took to brim it (around 11 for me, since I don't run it to dangerously low levels) then divide the mileage by the gallons...

    about 52ish, which for over 3 weeks of combined driving at different times of the day (tho mostly off peak and around town) is perfectly acceptable... tdi 140 2004

    I have 44-45mpg on my remapped 170 quattro, before the map it was 38-40 this is on the motorways driving heavy footed.

    On commute to work (8 miles) is 37 after map and 33 before, cold and lots of roundabouts, not good for the old economy.

    it may not be the remap, when was it last serviced,
    when was the last time you checekd your tyre pressures (i didnt check mine for months running between 29psi and 35 psi ment to be 38psi) and i gained 4mpg just from having the correct tyre pressure,
    vac and boost leaks with reduce mpg,
    also things like dragging brakes.
    wheel aligment.

    only takes you to have poor service period and low tyres and you could easy be knocking 10mpg off the best mpg figure

    Revs in gear has nothing to do with tuning as someone else pointed out.

    Remember there are two versions of the 1.6. Mine is the 1.6 FSI and I get avg 38-40 mpg on my normal weekly driving - mix of 50-limit A roads and town driving, but mostly moving.
    If yours has the 6 speed box like mine, you should be seeing about 3k/revs at 70mph in 6th. If it's 3800 in 6th, you have a slipping clutch or the wrong wheels on.

    Unlike my previous diesel Jag XJ 2.7, the Audi's economy drops like a stone the faster you go on the motorway. Where the Jag would do 40mpg all day at 90 on the motorway, the Audi drops to 30 if you are lucky if you go that fast.
