    Loss of MPG

    My turbo let go on me approx 2 weeks ago and since its been repaired i'm approx 10 - 15 mpg down on what i used to getting, now after doing a 10 mile ish run at 40-50mph in 6th i'm only getting 45mpg average. and low 30's for normal town driving !!

    Is there something that could be causing this ???
    During a 4 wheel drift on the M25 i hear from my mate "Dont you ever do that again! Gimme the keys" after 12 hours of owning my old S4

    You were getting 60 mpg???
    The warm weather and aircon will have an effect.
    I'd let everything run in for a few hundred miles before I made a true assessment.
