    Right, had my car 6 weeks, done nearly £1300 in fuel over 4300 miles at an average of 21.6 mpg. Now I'm not saying I thought I'd get 30 mpg, but the bulk of my driving is motorway, at the speed of whatever the outside lane is doing. I did think I'd get 25-26mpg though.

    Still, love it to bits, but god knows how the V8 S5 drivers get on!

    Our S4 was the same when we first got it. I think average over 3 years is about 22mpg - but then my wife does a lot of short journeys (slowly!).

    On the motorway, cruise around 70 and you can break 30mpg on a good run. Most trips though (20 miles+) end up in the mid 20s.

    My old S5 (4.2) was 3-4mpg worse in all scenarios! Don't think I ever saw more than 27mpg even when nursing to the petrol station!!

    My 4.2 will see 25 on a motorway run. Empty flat motorway will see 30mpg @ 85mph. Rare as chickens teeth. Averaging 20mpg. Gave up trying to be frugal. Drive it like it's meant to be driven! :)
