    New Owner

    Hi all

    New owner with a 2002 A4 2.0 Sport. Very happy with the car but have one concern.

    Picked up the car with little fuel so chucked in a tenner to get me home, the display showed a range of 105 miles which was fine, drove home about 30 miles all on 30 and 40 MPH a roads taking it easy and changing gear at 3000-3500 rpm and the car still showed a range of 70 miles, brilliant.

    Started her up the next day drove half a mile and the fuel gauge dropped to the first red indicator showing a range of 25 miles!!!


    Off the top of my head I work that out at about 20mpg!! Do I need to be a little more aggressive to get a better mpg? Or does it sound like something is wrong?

    One thing I did notice was when I took the fuel filler cap of there was a big release of air, I know from owning VW's that some models have a small hole in the petrol cap to release the pressure, should this be the same on this car?

    Thanks
