    Very good indeed, I had to check the figures twice when I saw over 40 urban on the spec sheet lol.

    Are you running regular or super unleaded? I have the S3 at the moment so always use super.

    63.5 mpg from a 90 mile journey last week and considering the official figures for the 2.0 Diesel Quattro is 62.8 I'm very happy. I usually average 48-54 mpg on motorway journeys going slightly over the speed limit... :friendly wink: but this time I was going through long stretches of 50mph limits on the M1 and I had my grandad following me so I rarely went over 65mph.

    Best I've got on the S5 is 33mpg on a 60 mile journey. Most of the time I'm averaging 20 - 25mpg.

    I'm about the same, think I have seen 35mpg as an average over a 150 mile trip in traffic. Long term average is around 25mpg having done 900 miles in it now.

    Full tank range is around the 400 mile mark, suits me just fine I didn't buy it to be economical :grimacing:

    I haven't calculated it accurately to prove the displayed range figure but that's what it displays at the petrol station once full to the brim. I would imagine the answer to that is a no though...

    I see! Possibly could be achieved driving with a feather foot, but where's the fun in that..

    Well I dropped the wife off at work this morning, all town traffic, then went up the dual carriageway to the next town driving around there at town speeds! Did what I needed to and then came home:

    Happy with this :)

    Almost shat myself on the way back, the camera doesn't show it much, but if I hadn't swerved the tractor would have hit me side on!!! He was coming across all the lanes from the right:

    A 100 mile drive to Dublin got me 37mpg in the S5.
    Economy mode and cruise control worked a treat.

    These are great numbers, I've been doing a few 100 mile runs every now and again and I've really been trying hard to reach at least 30mpg - I'm guessing everyone here has turned on all the efficiency features and have been driving very calmly.

    I hit my all time record the other day in my S5! Quite impressive.
