    Around town - stop/start etc - 21.5-22.5mpg
    Motorway steady at 85mph - about 24-26mpg - lower mpg at 70mph funnily enough - I think because the engine wasn't at peak torque revs at 70mph (about 2900-3000prm) so wasn't braething as well as it should.
    Peak torque revs is about 3300-3500rpm.
    Drove from North of England to Liege in Belgium last year at a steady 85 (peak torque revs) and got 29.5mpg...best yet!
    Thrash it around and you'll see about 18mpg
    Hope this helps.

    Long Motorway trips 100miles+ gives 27mpg
    Local trips 10-20mile, typically 23mpg

    sames as monsieur le woorlord. although in -20 it's probably half that until the bugger warms up.

    37? holy ****. I've never seen that as an average mpg on mine. maybe I need a few things cleaned/replaced to get the bugger working more efficiently

    dear god. i've never seen anything near 40 as an average. 30 on a run but i'd need to be going downhill with a fair wind behind me to get 40 :)

    tbh when i drove it from london, there was no traffic so i could keep a steady pace once on the M40 and theres no juntions to slow down for all the way to glasgow.

    when i done 40 on the way to work i was driving to intentional get a high avarage. normally its about 34 combined with 4 miles A road and 13 miles on the motorway.

    maybe it is possible then :) I think I'd actually get myself stressed trying to drive as conservatively as possible. I tend to drive on decent A roads here but still have quite a bit of overtaking to do and then town driving either end. I'll need to experiment and see if I can reach this fantastic 40 figure!

    B6's came out in 2001 on a Y, if you've a V reg one it's either on a private plate or a B5.

    Thats true.


    Side question, was there or is there ever been reports of Audi making cars with odd engines, or drive train when at the the end or start of the new model?
    Like the RWD Mondeos when they was first taking over from the Sierra or Sierras being registered as late as mid 90s?
