    It depends really - motorway miles I'll get around 450 miles to a full tank.

    It will never be a massivley economical engine as its an old style "pumped" diesel as opposed to a modern common rail system.
    The fact the car is quattro will also reduce the mpg a little as it effectivley has a little more work to do by pushing the power through a larger drivetrain.

    MPG for these engines seem to range from 32mpg to 55mpg going by comments in other threads. When you weigh in factors such as driving style, trip lengths, speeds and roads, not to mention whether the car has been modded in any way, so long as you're in the range mentioned, you should be doing okay.

    My tiptronic gets down to about 20 round town but I am prepared to accept that and it can get over 40 on a long run.Its been properly timed and has a good tuning box.I could go back to a manual which allows you to keep the revs down but the auto is a good package with nice heated leather which is what everyone should have in this weather

    With a lot of motorway miles and a bit of around town driving I was getting 38ish. If I were only driving on motorways then it might have been around 45. I'm now just driving very short trips and getting 33. The only reason I track my MPG is to keep an eye on the condition of my car. It is what it is.

    I get a consistent 36 mpg to and from work in mine, that's all dual carriage way roads and lots of round about and traffic lights to kill your mpg as well. The last motorway trip I did a few weeks ago was around a 35 mile trip and I was sat between 70-80mph and it averaged 46 mpg. The most I've had out of it on a 90 mile motorway trip and the same speeds was 51 mpg.

    For a 2.5 6 cylinder engine which is driving all 4 wheels (big wide 19" wheels I might add) and is remapped I think those figures are pretty damn good, well I'm happy with it and that's the main thing.

    Oh and mines a manual too.

    That is damn good Az and goes to show how much better an all round car the v6 is than a 1.9/2.0tdi. Much better driving experience only let down by a small pay off on the fuel and if you enjoy driving it's got to be a no brainier!

    I'm getting between 36 to 40 mpg on b roads on a manual sport with remap.
