    Good idea for thread

    I did get around 30ish around town and on 10 mile run to work and back on country lanes. On a motorway run 33-37, 37 only if if kept to 70mph, but after reading some info just re-fitted undertrays, which weren't fitted when I got the car and now everything improved.

    Getting a couple of mpg more on work run but on long motorway run getting 37-39 so feel was worth fitting undertrays.

    All figures from DIS - can't be bothered with any more complicated calculations!

    Engine is standard AKE in Avant SE and manual with 142k.

    I get 29 mpg round town and 32 mpg on a motorway run whilst towing a Iffor williams 2.7 Tonnes trailer often loaded with cars over 1 tonne. That's in a w reg a6 allroad manual wich is shy of 2 tonnes on its own ! I only use the car for towing so i believe the overall mpg will increase a little if unloaded but i drive other cars on a regular basis...

    I also find I get better MPG if I use the tiptronic rather than auto mode...

    Rossy - sorry should have said it is a quattro - although adamss24 has already confirmed this. Gentle right foot when required and cruise on m'way - redlined in 3rd and 4th once a weekish to keep clean:yes:

    We used to get 32mpg according to the DIS in our old allroad. That was mainly the misses driving to work & back on back country roads & she drives slow, couldn't get it any higher that that.

    Not had it that long but been on UK holidays so clocked up over 1k miles that fortnight alone! Been mainly using tip rather than full auto getting 34mpg on clear motorway / a roads (cant keep speed down lol) 37 on busier motorway & A road run (so speed lower) and 25 back to work / urban / stop start. Tried vpower for couple fills and it did make a slight difference, but it is more expensive, found on fuelprice site alocal total where excellium not much more than regular so may give that a go next.

    When i first got my allroad a few years ago the best i got was 530miles (36mpg combined) to a tank of ordinary diesel. She would start almost telepathically as soon as i turned the key and I would lug the engine everywhere keeping the engine in max torque band (1800rpm). Car came with genuine Audi cams, AKE turbo, etc.

    After various garages have had their evil way with her after having the top end re-built with aftermarket cams, etc, dynamic tuning way out, Castrol 5w40 TDI Edge, 2-stroke oil in fuel, cleaned intakes, genuine MAF, engine flush, new air/oil/fuel filter, reconditioned injectors, *S model turbo, new coolant temperature sensor (green), new thermostat, new water pump, 75w90 (??) gearbox and diff lube i average around 430-ish miles to a tank (combined 28.8mpg). Only a slight haze when i mash the accelerator.

    I don't lug the engine as much (bad for oil pressure and oil starvation) and i'm convinced the cams are the wrong profile, turbo isn't right and the pump timing is still out. It doesn't start as ferociously as it used to and seems to run out of puff above 3500rpm. Lots still to sort out. Hope to pull the heads off, port and match to gaskets, etc. genuine cams, bigger turbo with bigger nozzles, re-map and see what happens (with Chris' help of course).

    WOW! if your local would love to see this car...after new belts and everything else that involves front end off I'm now getting around 24-25mpg tootling around so not much over 40mph. One cam was out apparently, so better than the 16 I was getting!!
    Turbo Force Turbo and Tuning Box are the only mods...did have a filter and loved the turbo noise...for about 2 weeks then it got on my wicks a bit and the comments (sounds like a tracktor) didn't help.....tuning loads of Petrol Turbos but this being the everyday driver....subtle...

    Even then, driving like that, I struggle to get into the 40's (avg 35mpg) and mine is a A4 saloon with that engine and drivetrain...
