    I have a 2010 A4 2.0TDI 143 S line SE.

    I have got as low as 414 and the most i have seen is 511, this is from a full tank to the fuel warning light comes on, what figures should i get for a full tank? I don't drive the car hard, i would hate to see the figures then.

    I'm glad i bought a 2.0T quattro petrol!!!! With mixed driving, 380-410 is easy. Granted, hard driving drops it to below 350, but i did manage a gentle cruise up North of Scotland 2 years ago and averaged into the mid 40's and range was over 450, IIRC.

    Yep and my post (and gulp!) was in reponse to the previous post.

    To be honest it doesn't really matter with my consumption as in the car we only go about 5k a year.

    I dunno, when I filled up and had 580 on my previous post above, the fuel beep went off at 550 showing I had 50 left. Mind you I did this recently in a rather remote area, went to a saisnburys but it was shut. Got another 5 miles with it showing this.

    I've got the 143CR in my Exeo (saloon), and can regularly get >600miles out of a tank on a good motorway run. The most I've had is 695miles on a run from Derby down to Paris.

    On the daily commute I get on average 44-46mpg, but can get 54mpg on a long run, sitting at about 80mph on manual (cruise knocks 1-2mpg off that).

    Interesting how you say cruise knocks MPG down. Maybe because it applies the brakes instead of freewheeling down hills.

    Blimey, I'm just shocked that people can afford to brim their tanks with current fuel prices :)

    That is excellent!? I was averaging 36mpg yesterday on the way down the M5, 31mpg on the way back. 1000 miles on the clock, 2.0 TFSI. And I was going some?

    It drops significantly around town though, roughly 20mpg. My DIS reads 420miles when the tank is filed, probably getting around 360 miles, although still early days.

    I love the engine, but will miss the mpg of the diesels and not having to fill up every other day!

    Mt DIS reads just over 40 mpg. Get about 500 miles to the tank. Pretty disappointed really with that. Was hoping for an extra 50-100 miles, but I'll live with it. Suppose the multitronic doesn't really help though. 143 CR

    I find overtaking on A roads and speed makes a massive difference.

    I get about 42mpg on my 30 mile cross country commute, but if I decide not to overtake people that are travelling at 55 or less and choose instead to stay behind them..... my journey takes a few minutes longer but I get over 50 mpg.

    One route takes me through a 15 mile section of motorway construction with average speed cameras for the whole length. I get about 50 mpg average if I go that way, even if its clear and I can use cruise at 55 mph (its a 50mph limit but 55 on the cruise does not get you a ticket).
