    hi all

    just a quick post to see if my consumption is average

    I've had my A4 avant 2.5 quattro tiptronic for a couple of months now and getting 26-28mpg with average country runs of 10-15 miles

    and then 32-34mpg on a motorway run

    is this good bad or indifferent bearing in mind I'm enjoying the ride so far /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    My average full tank range on a normal travel to work week, which is 13 country miles each way is around 460miles to 500 miles until the fuel light comes on.

    So I reckon using 62 litres of fuel to do 460 miles is 33 miles per gallon, or based on 500 miles its 36 mpg.

    A4 2.5TDi Quattro Sport Tiptronic 2003

    On a motorway run the range goes upto 600 miles per tank!!!

    kris,
    wow, 50 on a run and 38 mpg round town. thats better than my 4 pot ! 130PD. I get 43 on a long run, 38 mpg round town. I find the DIS/MFA within 1 mpg of brim to brim figures. i'm quite disappointed with my mpg ...

    kris - wow 50 mpg thats like intergalactic miles to me, was only getting 22mpg in my previous honda /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    maureen - you're not calculating properly, you still have a couple of gallons left in the tank when the light comes on /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
