    Hi i was wondering what sort of milage you get from £50 worth of fuel to a tank (driving sensibly)
    with a A3 1.8T. Just so that I can compare.
    Thanks

    I get about 300 miles based on my daily commute of 15 miles each way, combination of A-Roads and some town driving. I mainly drive sensibly with the occasional bit of fun on the way home on a Friday!

    About the same as me... I get about 150 miiles from £40. It's shocking, I think that works out about 20mpg.

    The OBC is not that accurate, especially if you have new hardware, in particular a 4 bar FPR, or bigger injectors etc. apart from the usual heavy foot driving and the effect of weight one thing affects our 1.8T engines leaks, majority of the time this makes the car run rich, therefore more fuelling. So make sure there are no split hoses loose clips or loose exhaust. Then you should be getting a better MPG.

    im getting around about 300 miles from £50. I was just wondering if my fuel consumption was any good.
    Looks okay to me though :)

    Now my car is running right again i get about 30mpg.
    Worked out and also shown as 31mpg on the dash.
    When it was 200bhp a few weeks ago with a tired fuel pump i was getting 20 mpg.
    Now strangely with a new fuel pump and power back around the 290 mark... 30 mpg.
    Work that one out,
    All i can put it down to is the car throwing extra petrol in to try and sort the fuel preasure issue.
