    Hello folks, been here a while as the missus is an A3 owner, but never really posted.
    Currently have a 1994 VW Corrado VR6, and am now (heavily) swaying towards a TT or an older S3.

    The Corrado returns 28/29mpg on average. What's the S3 likely to give me?
    The reason I ask is that 'official' figures are not always realistic figures.

    Thanks in advance.

    only got an A3 1.8TS. but i thought it might help a little.

    Mines the same as yours on the v6
     
  3. I average 28mpg overall, motorways 32-34mpg. And a late night drive back from the airport through fast country roads (last night) about 24-25mpg.

    Hope this helps.

    In the long term, with a mix of hard and motorway driving I get 29mpg.

    If it helps, I had a Golf VR6 before the S3 and the S3 is much much better on fuel!
