    What MPG do you 2.0T boys get

    As the title asks what are you guys getting mpg wise from your 2.0T's?

    I'm a little shocked that the S3 returns such poor figures, I would have expected early 30's...

    Post em up chaps

    And I know you don't buy an S3 for economy before anyone points out, I am just curious thats all

    Picking mine up at the weekend.

    I am hoping for low to mid 30's on my motorway journey from Essex to Hampshire once a week.

    average on DIS is 28 for the life of the car, most journeys i get 26ish, when im driving enthusiastically it goes to about 22 and when im having an argument with the misses anything can happen...

    Early thirties in a 2.0T is not going to happen, I have managed to get 38mpg driving back from blackpool on the M6, but that was doing 50ish mph in 6th for the entire journey behind some lorry!

    I am in the process of swapping for an s3 and expect fuel consumption to be lower.

    Anyone who returns 30+ from the 2.0T FSI engine should have brought the 140TDI (which is a great car)

    Also, i have dSG in case that effects the efficiency of gearchange/fuel consumption

    That surprises me as I have read a lot of threads on this forum and felt that early 30s on a clear motoraway at 70/75 leptons would be acheiveable.
    Certainly there are a number of people here that feel that shoul not be a problem.

    High 20s on a motorway in an S3, so shouldn't the A3 2.0t Quattro get low 30s in comparison?

    Anyway, I will let you know for sure next week!!

    I know this is about the Audi 2.0T engine but am shocked at how poor its economy is. I can get early 30's mpg in an E46 M3 all day long on the motorway cruising at 80-85. It drops to 24-25 mpg in town tho. BMW do know how to put an engine together!

    I had an M3 convertible about 6 months ago, could never get more than late 20s.
    Surprisingly before that I had a new Jag Super V8 (supercharged 4.2), easily get 35 on a motorway at a sensible speed.
    Dropped to 12 in town though!!

    I get around 26-28mpg out of mine but I do rag it something stupid and spend a lot of time in traffic. Taking it easy I can get mid to high 30's out of it on a run - sticking around 80 on the motorway for example.

    I have owned 20TQ and presently an S3, there is not really a massive difference in Mpg, in warmer months cruising on the motorway at 70-80Mph would see 34-36mpg in the 20TQ, S3 in the same conditions would see 30-32Mpg, have seen 34 on a good day.A good cross country blast does see mpg figures plummet though,but who cares, didn't buy it for the economy.
    Do appear to be using far more fuel in the winter months though, must be the slower warm up Etc.

    Surely cars are more econical in winter due to the denser, cold, air?

    Now my car has around 18.000 km (~ 11.000 miles) and the average consumption is 9.7 L/100km (around 29 MPG i think).

    [/quote] married blonde .Surely cars are more econical in winter due to the denser, cold, air[/quote]

    Not sure , thought it was the other way around. Mine definataly appears to using more and I don't think I am driving any differently. DIS is giving lower readings than it did in the summer, went to the Lake District for Xmas got 28-29mpg, in the summer that would have been 32-33mpg, 80mph on cruise control.
    I know you get more power with colder air so assumed that would have meant more fuel ??????
    Maybe some of the tuning guys could shed a little light on this ???

    Everybody must have a heavier right foot than me, my dis tells me 24mpg on very short journeys to work (4, fast, miles). Crusing at 80 registers approx 30, best average up to lake district at around 80/85 saw 31 due to zero traffic.

    I'm quite happy with 24mpg, my 2.0tdi only managed 37/38mpg on the same journey - small price to pay with my annual mileage and the grin factor provided.

    Interestingly my Golf Mk5 GTI managed around 3 mpg more but am guessing this is down to quattro.

    I guess the extra fuel consumed during warm up is one cause. And also, if the air is denser, is more fuel not needed to keep the mixture correct?

    I always seem to consume more fuel in winter

    Blimey, you must be lucky with your engine build. even if I'm being incredibly careful, I can't get over 30mpg at any speed above 65. My lifetime readout is 28.6. And that's on a remapped car (which incidently made no difference to consumption but had a big effect on my grin)

    In my S3

    Lifetime average so far (only after 1300 miles though) is 21.5mpg, To and from work I tend to get a trip average of ~20mpg, this is a combination of stop/start traffic and dual carriageway.

    On a long run I get a trip average of 28mpg. I did reset the trip average once when I was on the motorway and for the duration of the motorway section it sat at 34mpg, but quickly dropped back to 28mpg when I left the motorway.

    i have a few friends with the quattro version and none of them including me with dsg have seen anywhere near those figures, including the stated figures from audi...

    my old 140 TDI used to average 56mpg to the 2.0t's 26 for the same journey.

    Over 34 months and 27ooo miles my wifes 2.0T Quattro Sportback has averaged just under 25mpg. High's motorway journies at just about legal speeds circa 28 mpg lows of 21/22. Been back to Audi several times and nothing wrong! Buying a 170Tdi Quattro and TT in March and hoping for better things!!

    Is it a quattro ?
    That normally knocks 3-4mpg off the figures.

    You should be able to get over 30 easy, mine used to do 34mpg at 80 mph on the motorway. Try 6th gear !! He ! He !

    Seriously though It should do better than that, although the lifetime readout is not to bad.

    Could be weight as well, the mk5 GTI must be like a biscuit tin compared to the S3. I could easily get between 28/34 mpg around town and 38 on motorways and that was using RON 98.

    Would go right down to about 22 if I was giving it some.

    Our car has returned 24.5 mpg over its 14k life and I have never seen above 28-29mpg driving at 90 on the motorway. For some reason the gearing in 6th seems alot shorter than it needs to be. My Volvo T4 which is the same power returned 32mpg with four of us in it and the boot full of luggage last time i drove back from southampton and that was at 90-100 all the way. The Audi has no chance at geatting anywhere near that due to the gearing.

    Agree this supports our experience although of course I would not admit to doing 90 on the motorway in the UK! Assume yours was in Germany too!!

    I see where you are coming from but if you compare 2.0T to other 2.0T (i.e Impreza, Evo, Megane, Astra etc) Mid 20's isn't that bad.

    Tried it but having to open the windows to keep cool had an adverse effect on mpg too.!!

    I recently drove from Edinburgh to just south of Exeter and returned 36mpg average at speeds of 70-90mph.

    In town is different story, I rarely get more than 22-25mpg
