    A3 1.6 MPG? What do you get?

    What MPG should I be getting from my 1.6 A3? I have seen the official figures, but what kind of figures are you guys getting, on urban, and combined journeys?

    i suppose it depends on how you drive too. I can average 36+ while kicking about the country roads but If driving sensible on bypass/motorway etc I can get 42+ and thats on the 2.0 FSI

    It has been known to been about 26+ on short highed spirited journeys LOL

    Yeah, I'm not too happy with my 1.6FSI.

    I've seen 45mpg on a motorway run, which Ive been okay with, but in town no matter how I drive I'm lucky to get more than 33mpg.

    I have an 04 8p 1.6 not the FSI version.

    My car is shocking on fuel, around town I get roughly 20mpg. IfI'm conservative and/or cruising I can get it into the mid thirties.

    I recently did a trip to Paris and back from North London, I averaged 34 mpg.

    My Mum has a a 08 A4 Cabriolet 1.8T and she can easily get 36-40 around town.

    Just as a reference, and not wanting to turn this into a MPG thread, but my 170 quattro does mid 40's - low 50's on a combined run and mid-high 30's in town.

    Just been on a run into the country about 80 miles long some m/way and country lanes as you can see from the photo I managed to get 58.2 MPG Tank half full I have 315 mile left in tank and have done so far 3846 on the clock (hard to see on pic ) Car has only done 4636 miles total. I had turned off all Electrics ( No running lights no fan blower No radio ) two people in the car also lifted air pressure in tyre to 36PSI in front 32PSI in back. All the time while driving taking foot off accelerator when possible to cruse, when coming to a junction if no car behind cruse to junction. Also trying to not let rev go over 1500 ( but not possible all the time). Not a relaxing drive had to work at it. still only averaged 50.9 on computer 2.

    Could not drive like this on going no fun. just wanted to see what I could get, still not good enough. If I had done this with my 1.9 TDI A3 would of got 80+ MPG
