    Thanks

    It doesnt sound right tbh. I've not driven the new 1.8T model but for comparison purposes - I have a 3.2 and I can comfortably manage 32-35mpg on a good run....

    I'm sure someone else with the 1.8t will be along soon to give you an idea of their MPG

    I asked this question a week or so ago, it seems that on motorway runs they were getting 38 - 42 mpg, bearing in mind the car had approx 10,000 miles on the clock. Hope this helps

    I guess so much comes down to driving styles. I drove sooooo carefully once and only just squeezed 30mpg out of my 3.2. Usually I see about 24.

    Yeah, to be fair I dont often attempt to squeeze every last mpg from the car as thats not the reason I bought the thing - I'm referring to a trip from Edinburgh back to Newcastle in which I thought I'd give his economy lark a go - the readout was giving me 33-34mpg'ish. Its probably unfair of me to use one case in point and 'comfortably' was the wrong expression!

    On a weekly basis though travelling to and from work - 14 miles each way, I average between 22-24mpg which is a mixture of combined and urban driving. It might cost a bit more at the pump but I love the drive to and from work

    I used to have an 8L 1.8t quattro (180bhp version) and the economoy on that wasnt that great, on the same drive to and from work I think that thing averaged around 27/28mpg.

    Not really, I see under 20 mpg if I drive like a c*nt.

    I've never seen great mpg from any cars I've owned! Aah well.
