    I'm in scotland at the minute, doing some 150 miles each day 2.0tdi is getting 53mpg if it's a day on the motorway or 45mpg if it's A/B roads.

    I'm pretty anal about my fuel ups, I log them all on fuelly.com! (sad) My average over the last 12months is 46.6, mainly A/B roads. DIS often shows 50-60 though

    If the DIS is pretty far out, you can adjust it using VCDS/VAGCOM from the 100% factory figure; lower the figure to make the DIS figures better or go above 100% to reduce figures. I actually went lower on my old 170 as the figures were just not right, showing 49mpg average on a really steady motorway run when brim to brim the car was actually doing 56mpg.

    I'm getting about 48mph (mixture between of roads and journey length) from my two year old 2.0 TDi; I calculate the mph figures myself and wouldn't necessarily trust the DIS for an accurate indication. Expecting a slightly better return as the weather warms up.

    I have 2007 140 tdi with revo stage 1 and the best i was getting before i cleaned my inlet manifold was 41mpg and i use v-max, after i done the work i am now getting 48mpg if i drive like a granny lol,but thats not me so i put my foot down and dont worry about mpg any more as an audi needs to be driven hard lol.

    I pay no attention at all to the info display cos it never seems too accurate, I have a 2.0 140 and I get almost 600 miles to a tank

    mostly town driving and nearly always off peak ie very little traffic to slow me down

    Be interesting to compare the 1.6TDI to the 2.0TDI!

    ^ DIS isn't accurate at all. I log my fuel ups on an app called Mileage. Also shows lots of info/statistics, so over time you can analyse/compare, if you want.

    Edit: My 'real life' mpg is around 39mpg, mostly town driving and harsh acceleration.

    iOS App? Is it just called mileage or something else? obviously searching for just mileage has given me loads of result. Interestingly enough a Genuine Audi Mileage Tracker!

    The one I'm using is for Android. I'm not sure about the others. It's, 'Mileage' by Evan Charlton. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.evancharlton.mileage

    Edit: Only thing you have to watch out for is US and UK gallons (imperial) when tweaking the units for mpg.
    Also a genuine one from Audi? Hmm...

    I got as near as makes no difference 720miles out of my last full tank, not sure of the tank size off the top of my head so can't tell you what that was in mpg though. It's a 1.6TDI doing a 90mile round trip commute on mainly a roads (driven sensibly for all but the briefest of moments)

    2.0tdi 170+ (remapped) auto, 520miles on avg (£62-68ish) I do a 75mile commute, computer2 says avg of 42mpg. On my55 last 2.0tdi 140 manual I got exactly same miles per tank however computer said 52mpg avg. I guess when I floor it in the 170 its bringing my average wayyy down compared to 140.

    Good call, the app has options to change to imperial gallons.had a look at a few of these and this seems a very nice implementation.

    I've got 2.0tdi 170, 59 plate so CR. Do a decent mixture of A/B road, M'way and town and get 50mpg and I definitely wouldn't say that is smooth driving either. When I've tried smooth driving for a complete tank will take it to around 55mpg normally, a little bit more if not much town driving on that tank. Saying that, I've also had 40-43 mpg out of a tank so it can vary a lot. 50mpg is probably the all round average for me.

    Calculated using online sites. DIS is out but not a million miles out.

    2.0 tdi 140 60 plate. Only go by Dis but average 60-70mph driving is 57 mpg.
    Town driving 30 mph 39-40 mpg.
    Spirited drive 53 mpg.
    When I first got the car I had the dis in the 60's but haven't seen that again even with cruise😩
    Did a motor way cruise last week - 300 miles to half a tank 😄

    Not sure I can be bothered to work it out... When it's gone it's gone!

    Did do a motorway run last year though, left with a full tank, returned with an extra 550 miles on the clock & a quarter tank of derv left, certainly was impressed with that!

    Round town it drinks the stuff

    But then I only do about 4k a year in it :p For me it's not worth having for the economy really, just love the car & easier to put through business as a derv!
