    Mine has behaved the same and gave 375 miles to empty on first refuel and 400 on second but miles to empty increases once you are actually on the road and using fuel. I would not worry about it as it should settle down to being more accurate once it learns your typical driving style and estimates accordingly, based on my last A3 this took about half a dozen tanks full.

I'm also seeing only low 50s mpg after the first 500 miles. My previous 2.0 averaged about 55mpg over 3 years and 70k mostly motorway miles. I decided to go to the 1.6 as I was hoping to achieve around 60mpg.
    Hi 1.6TDi, I find it strange you think the 1.6TDi is noisy? I've come from a petrol S3 8P and now have a 1.6TDi 8V and find it amazingly quiet you can barely hear the engine under all but really hard acceleration. Before the S3 I had a 1.9TDIe A3 and the new 1.6TDi is light and day in terms of noise and refinement. Very smooth and quiet.. Still undecided on MPG, but its definitely no worse than the 1.9TDIe was... averaging about 54mpg over 800 miles from new just now.

    HI, to add my penny's worth. Actual mpg against real mpg is debated amongst many of the forums I frequent and there is probably no car that will get more than about 80% at best against the claimed figures and when it is said they are obtained on a rolling road, that is correct. They are also under conditions where the temperature in which the cars are tested are set to favour mpg and that the only road conditions simulated is wind resistance. The vehicles are not cold started neither do they have the CC or the CD player on. The steering cannot simulate the turning of the wheels, thus making for increased forward rolling resistance. There are plans for making the tests more like the real world but in truth this can never be perfect.
    This is how the cars are tested:
    "In the European Union, passenger vehicles are commonly tested using two drive cycles, and corresponding fuel economies are reported as 'urban' and 'extra-urban', in litres per 100 km and (in the UK) in miles per imperial gallon.
    The urban economy is measured using the test cycle known as ECE-15, first introduced in 1970 by EC Directive 70/220/EWG and finalized by EEC Directive 90/C81/01 in 1999. It simulates a 4,052 m (2.518 mile) urban trip at an average speed of 18.7 km/h (11.6 mph) and at a maximum speed of 50 km/h (31 mph).
    The extra-urban driving cycle or EUDC lasts 400 seconds (6 minutes 40 seconds) at an average speed 62.6 km/h (39 mph) and a top speed of 120 km/h (74.6 mph)".

    that's good, found out as much info as was around before I ordered my C.O.D. And 46 mpg seams to the long term average, which is pretty good considering its a petrol and decent performance. I only get 48 mpg on average for current Honda CRZ which is a 'sports hybrid' and A3 cod is quicker and more powerful.

    2.0 tdi sportback.
    I've now done 500 miles and total mpg is up to 50mpg and I'm consistently getting 55 mpg on my daily commute (30 miles each way).
    Dont drive particularly slowly and my commute includes quite a bit of stop/start traffic. Really happy with the results so far. Still on first full tank as well

    I've only done 400 miles, and so far the 1.6 TDI 8V is matching the economy that I was getting in the 2.0 TDI 8P. It's averaging mid 50's to low 60's depending on how many hills I need to go up!

    I think for the first couple of thousand miles the engine will still probably be a bit tight, and it does take time for the true economy to come. The dealer also confirmed that I should see an increase in fuel economy over time.

    I think that's the "Eco" display, using the controls on the steering wheel scroll to the far left "onboard computer" screen, then press the menu button (next to the scroll wheel) and chose the "Eco" display.
    Then you can use the scroll wheel to get the different modes up.

    At least I think that's the screen Stef is using. The setting in the MMI is to swap between Km's and Miles I think

    Above 70mph I wont say what speed but take a guess averaged 40mpg

    Short journeys country lanes and from main road to my house which is in the country side im averaging about 33mpg?? :-O thats on a 10 mile journey

    Taking into consideration the above information im averaging about 40mpg
    Why wont you say what speed ? its important to the info who cares if your speeding i don't give a crap dose any body else ?

    Yes, that is the setting I've got it on. I haven't actually had chance to play with all the other displays. I initially put it onto the Eco display as I was interested to see what I could get out of it in terms of MPG, as this was one of the reasons I went for the 1.6 TDI.

    It's worth pointing out, this is simply the display on the MMI, not the Auto Drive Select setting. I have this set to Auto.

    The 79 MPG was mainly on the flat or downhill, with a couple of smaller hills to go up. I was driving it as economically as I could though... In reality, you probably wouldn't drive like that all the time as you'd be late for every appointment!

    I know I'm from the dark side, but as we all share the same engines / gearboxes, thought I'd share my mpg from my 2 week old MK7 Golf GTD with the 184ps which I know a few of you guys are waiting for on your new A3's


    Last Import-0 by Sootchucker, on Flickr

    This has happened two times now (low to mid sixties) on my commute home, and bearing in mind the car only has 405 miles on it, I think that's pretty impressive. The run home includes also 10 minutes of stop start traffic trying to get to the motor way, followed by 9 miles of motorway (@ approx 75mph), followed by 5 miles of standard urban roads, traffic lights and roundabouts etc. Running the whole time in comfort mode (not Eco), and on my first fill up today , the car averaged 48.6 mpg, afainst the DIS reading of 50.1 mpg (so not too far out).

    I think I am seeing the same thing and on a full tank its showing 450miles but again this appears a little short.
    Unfortunately my issues have grown a bit. Having to have the front driver seat replaced because it squeaks and the drive side seatbelt adjuster rattles also.
    Not really what one expects with a new car !

    Got to say I'm regretting going to the 1.6tdi after my previous 2.0 tdi. After 6 months and 9000 miles I'm averaging 60mpg. Most of this is up and down the M6 and I usually stick to 70-75. My previous 8P 2.0tdi had averaged 56mpg over the same mileage. So I've got a 7% improvement in mpg for a 25% reduction in power! With improvements in the technology I'd expect the 8V 2.0tdi to achieve 60mpg on the same scenario.
    I did not expect to achieve anywhere near the published manufacturers mpg values but I did hope for around 65mpg on my usual long motorway runs.

    I don't think the Diesel engines have improved much since, I had a 2.2 ltr diesel civic s type gt, I brought nearly 8 years ago, and is the same performance , MPG and similar emissions as the 'New' 2.0 ltr Audi diesel, very good engines from Audi, but not much of an advance in my opinion from my old Honda engine (was a very good car so no shame in that, as engine cleaned up in the awards at the time)
    the petrols on the other hand are catching up fast, who would have through 8 years ago that a 1.4ltr. (C.O.D.) petrol would be quicker than the 2.0 ltr. Diesel On the same car ! And 80%+ of the mpg, 5% cheaper fuel, so unless you do very high mileage (well over 20000 per year for several years) is overall cheaper to buy / run (worked it all out on another thread afew weeks ago)

    1.8TFSI (180)

    I drive almost exclusively in local town driving and starting to enjoy the power on tap a little more as I am up to 700 miles on the clock now.

    But driving sensibly I can get 32mpg town driving, and on a 20 mile run yesterday I managed 45mpg.

    I didn't buy the A3 for maximum fuel economy but for driving pleasure combining both comfort and fun, so compared to my old 4.7 V8 Jeep (my comfort car) that gave me 9mpg around town and 21mpg on a run so I am very happy .
    Not sure what my Subaru (my fun car) gave me as no fuel comp but it wasn't really any better than the jeep?

    1.4 CoD with 5570 miles.

    Just done a trip from Essex to South Yorkshire mainly via the A1M.

    150 mile journey @ average 65mph got me 53.3 mpg which I am really pleased with since my old A1 1.6 TDI used to get around 60 mpg.

    I'm considering changing my order from 2.0 ltr 150 bhp derv to 1.4 cod. I was concerned that the 1.4 cod might feel a little flat can't get a test drive anywhere in my area. What do you think of the power. I drove a new 1.4 120bhp Golf and it felt flat.

    You will loose 90Nm of torque and an equivalent amount of grin factor and in gear fun. My last A3 was the 1.4 TFSI 125bhp and I was very happy with it but IMHO the 2.0 TDI leaves it standing.

    Hi, goes without saying that a 2.0l diesel will have better midrange acceleration than a 1.4 petrol because of the increased torque. However I doubt if it would stand a chance against my own car, a remapped 1.6 ecoboost. I have driven the 2.0l diesel and found it has all the usual negative traits of any other diesel I have driven and it certainly isn't top of my list of engines.

    Did not think the OP was wanting a comparison to your current car. Anyway for me the mid range acceleration when fully loaded on a motorway is the most important factor and is worth the extra cost IMHO

    Coming from a 1.6 TDI, where torque figures are identical to the CoD (I think), the CoD feels fine in comparison. I ve had test drives in 3 petrols - 122 / 140 / 180 and the CoD suits my requirements best in terms of efficiency and power. I do agree with you about the 122 being a bit flat. I think a lot depends on what you are used to in terms of your current car.

    I previously had a Golf Mk4 TDI 130bhp and loved it so much i kept it for 8 years which is probably what i will do with the Audi. That's why i went with the new Audi 150 tdi even though work is only ten mins away. I,ve never achieved decent mpg from a petrol car but looking at what the cod's are doing mpg its tempting. I'm currently driving a Nissan Micra 1.0 ltr i can't even get decent mpg out of that got it to use till my Audi arrives. I think it's the fact that petrol cars warm up quicker which is making me ponder the cod as the Golf took ages to warm up on winter mornings.

    Can't comment on the drop in mpg in winter for the 2.0TDi yet but in my old 1.4TFSI (not COD) on my regular 10 mile, 15 minute commute I averaged just over 41mpg in summer and just under 38mpg in winter. Both engines will suffer mpg losses in the cold as both need to squirt relatively cold fuel through colder than in summer injectors into the combustion chamber in roughly speaking the same way.

    I would be interested in any figures/experience anyone has on comparing winter to summer mpg for a 2.0TDI
