    I have an 02 S3 which has the same basic 1.8t plus a few modifications as its newer but it averages 28mpg and thats serious urban use so mixed I can get 32,the cambelt needs to be replaced every 60k or five years and also the water pump as the impeller is usually a plastic one.
    Stickies at the top of the section have a myriad of info.
