    Just bought my first Audi!, Really like it but it's currently in the garage but let's forget about that!.

    I'm just wondering what the average MPG other people are getting, also should i be using unleaded or super unleaded? I heard super unleaded can increase MPG & power, is this true?

    On a normally aspirated car,the gains in performance with super unleaded are usually very small,and on turbocharged cars,the gains come from being able to run higher boost levels safely.

    Will i see an increase in MPG if i use it? and will it be better for the engine? or should i just stick to normally unleaded?

    I'd certainly stick with a good quality premium unleaded,but a few percent more bhp at peak rpm isn't really worth it,and thrashing it to get that will certainly kill economy.

    Yes,you may see a small increase(a few percent) in mpg terms,but you have to weigh the cost of super unleaded against that.

    Best way is to try it,and see if you notice any gains,vs the cost.

    I usually only get about 250 miles out of a full tank, and that's town driving, with motorways I can get 350!

    I'm stuggling to get over 30mpg at the moment in my 2.0FSI. 95% of my driving is around town, start/stop stuff and I've also got the EML on the dash which could have something to do with it.

    I also think exhaust has started blowing again which won't help. If I reset it before going on a long motorway journey I can easily 35mpg+.

    Put in around £20 a week but I don't drive that much, only to and from work 5 days a week, to and from the gym and just other small journeys. I've never filled the tank right to full and seen how many miles it does though. May give it a go and see what I get.

    Yeah would be interesting to see what you get and i get just to compare them both!, £20 isn't too bad i guess!

    also do you use unleaded or super unleaded?

    I just use unleaded now. I used super unleaded for quite a while for a test but for the price, I didn't see any rise in mpg or performance tbh.
