    Can I get a TT?? or will the mpg kill me??? looking to swap A6 2.5Tdi for TT 180 BHP

    Heres the crack guys. I'm currently running my A6 C5 Avant 2.5 tdi as a daily commuter into south London from north Essex. My drive to work is 50 miles, 70% of which is motorway down the M11. I originally bought the car as I thought it would return good mpg, is currently averaging 32 :o( and has done for a year now. I've read that due to it being a Quattro, weighing a couple of ton and the 2.5 being a thirsty engine the mpg was never going to be great.

    Now I'm considering an early 180bhp TT as a daily driver and leaving the missus to do the school run with the A6 family bus. I recon I would be able to achieve around the same mpg with this variation of the TT. With petrol prices being a little cheaper than diesel I recon I wouldn't be any worst off?????

    What are your guys thoughts on this??

    Assuming this is the mk1 TT your looking at you'll get no where near 32mpg. I had the 225hp and was lucky to get 25mpg out of it when driving carefully. The new ones are a bit better I think but still not much, there is always the diesel version but dont know what the figures are on that

    I had the same engine in a golf GTI. You will be looking at AUM or BAM engine codes.

    Woeful economy. I would say on a run down the motorway taking it steady 32 would be achievable.round town not a cat in hells chance and figure around mid 20s

    I think you'll find the the AUM was a 150Bhp and the BAM was a 225
    Most probably be an APX or an ARY

    I get about 28 mpg average in my stock 180bhp A3 TQS ( ARY engine code ). It goes up to just over 30 mpg on a steady motorway run. I don't often drive in heavy traffic mainly duel carriage ways and country lanes.
