    What's your average mph

    We always moan about mpg! but I was fiddling and noticed my average mph is always 31mph. And that's including doing a ton everywhere I can on decent roads. It's the commute that ruins it.

    MPH != MPG

    Mines normally around 24. Pretty irrelavent measurement really as you can blast it down a nice road then sit at some lights for 5 mins and its gone :P

    I guess so. My wife said i was heavy footed when i was getting 22mpg from my ford escort 1.6. I thought there was something wrong with the car myself, sold it and Bought the Audi expecting to get the same or better. I was wrong- its my driving!

    Anyhow selling it and going for a 1.6 something running on LPG! should get 50 miles for the price of the 18 i'm getting now. More costwise because i only pay for Shell V Fuel. 95.9 against the 42.9! lol

    I get 23mpg out of my S4 and that's driving 3 miles to work in rush hour traffic. he does know there's another 4 gears after he's got into second doesn't he?

    average speed is 27, not bad really considering the driving i do to work and back

    bloody hell, now that's excellent! just shows how different each car is! i previously had 2.0 litre sierra's and they only did 20 - 25mpg? they do say though that re-mapping can improve mpg.

    ps his car has a non audi ecu which was designed to give power above all else. may have something to do with it?

    Urban/Town = Average 26.1mpg 19mph. Slowest here so far, and its not that busy when I drive to work and back.
    Long distance = 32-34mpg 55+mph (300 mile trip).

    Av MPH > 45
    MPG > 27.6

    Does this not all depend on our engine sizes and other Mod's as well?

    18.8 mpg actually so says the computer- round town that is. It's Tiptronic so that uses a little extra i suppose. I must just be a manic like my wife keeps telling me.
