    Miles to a tank...

    Evening All,

    Just got my A3 S-Line SB last week and filled up for first time today. Was really shocked that computer was only showing about 350 miles to empty despite being completely full.

    Is this normal? What are you guys getting to a full tank? Does the SB have a smaller tank than 3 door?


    Cheers

    Chris

    Seems pretty poor.

    What engine do you have?

    Mine does about 450-500 miles per tank, and is a 2.0 TDI 184 Quattro S-line S-tronic.

    Briefly, Miles to empty is calculated based on your driving style, give it a few tank fills to settle down,tanks are same size on 3 and 5 door at 50 litre and for a 2.0tdi you should be getting close to 500 miles to empty with about 40miles still left in the tank as reserve

    the attached thread will be useful

    Also depends on how you drive, the roads you drive on I.e motorway, A road, B road.
    Even down to the quality of fuel you use, supermarket = crap, shell = best

    I'm getting 540-550 miles for each tank. The first displayed miles to empty was something similar to what you have had. This will change/ climb with subsequent fill ups and as Daveotto/ Jimmy & NHn say, it will alter inline with your driving style. I've got a 2TDI and I'm very happy with the mpg & driving in dynamic mode all the time. Quite a bit of time was spent in auto but the trade off in mpg is negligible.

    So far managing about 470 - 490 miles per tank currently. Only has about 1800 on the clock though. DIS has read a 60.1mpg on a couple of longer journeys however. ( I know that its not totally accurate, but hey it make you feel good!)

    I think I need to measure the accuracy of the on board mpg display. Next time I fill up I'm going to start recording figures and work out how accurate it is!

    If its like mine, its off by ~8% by my calculations. Although Audi apparently won't adjust it unless it >10% out!

    Mine only showed about 380 after first fill up, it usually shows 500ish now after 4k. So don't worry.

    I'm getting around 500 - 540 miles out of my 2.0 TDI (150) now, really started improving once it had about 10k on the clock.

    Best tank to tank range was 590 miles, this was on non stop stint from Aberdeen to the south coast and part way back.

    In the early days it would only get around 450 to a full tank.
