    mpg on a 3.2

    Just wondering what mpg fellow 3.2 owners are getting ?

    I've had my car for just under 2 months and I am getting 22.3 mpg and most of my driving is in and around London.

    Usual on a tank full around 24 to 26, but I did tray and see what the best mileage on a tank full was. Driving like an old old man I managed just over 35. Thats on a 9 mile each way to work journey on very quiet country lanes. So I didnt hold any one up, there's hardly any one around when I go to work. Hardly fun though.

    in past five months mine's showing to have averaged 22.2 on the second trip on the DIS,

    daily driving is 19 miles to and from work, which is typically 19mpg and takes 20 minutes one way, and 23mpg and 45mins the other

    weekends it rarely betters 20mpg, most tankfulls going in less than 200 miles!!

    Overall, about 24.5.
    Can get 28ish by driving everywhere in D mode and hardly touching the throttle pedal, but it's not much fun.
    On a motorway doing 70 in 6th then I think it averages at almost 30 - I don't often do 70 though
    It's equally easy to drive quickly (and/or in S mode) and end up below 20 mpg.

    I do not think anyone is worrying about it, just curious to know what mpg people are getting.

    As you said you do not buy a 3.2 if high MPG is a big factor in your decision making.

    Too right Steve-L,

    I swapped cars for the day with my wife today, can't put the dog in hers!! and hearing the 3.2 pull away this morning from the end of our road really made up for how much fuel I'll have to put in to replace what it uses today,

    and she's just phoned to say she's been pulled over in a spot check, luckily for the tints and vehicle check not the speed she had been doing up to the previous roundabout...

    20% tints didnt provide any problems on my WR1, i had 20% all round.
    YOu should be fine


    As for MPG, i dont use the car much, last time i used it was to go to Manchester and Back.

    It used nearly a full tank there and then 3/4 of a tank back.

    Norwich to Manchester 235 miles, so not bad at all.

    So roughly 260 Miles to a tank on FAST motorway driving.

    Have to say that for such a large capacity engine, I think it's impressive 3.2 owners are getting MPG in the mid to late twenties. Shows how fuelling technology has improved over the years.

    yeah there was no problem, the vehicle inspector said he didn't see why the officer had pulled her in. my rear sunshade is almost permanently up, so from the front the car does look a bit dark.

    Wife thinks the plod was jealous, I think he'd probably heard her coming!, I don't mind but she does enjoy driving it pretty hard most of the time


    out of interest I reckon the last three tanks of V-Power have made a small difference to avg mpg, I'm UP!! a whole 0.1 to 22.3, it had been going down from 27.6!! when I bought it to 22.2 until about 10 days ago.

    We have had the 3.2 DSG a couple of weeks now. Mainly used by the missus for 9 mile commute - country lanes, A road & town - she loves it! Not much chance to use the power so averaging about 28mpg (according to DIS). I had a short run to nearest town today and could quite see how using S mode & enjoying yourself would easily halve that sort of figure!

    I had similar thoughts when looking for a new A3. Absolutely the 3.2 sounds better but the extra price, weight, and nearly half the mpg of the 2l T and no faster went with that instead. Can get nearly 40mpg some runs. Average is 35 ,and thats quattro.
