    I've had three tanks full of Shell V-Power and have got 225 miles to the tank which is about 60 litres.
    Hardly any motorway driving mostly start-stops with about 4 mile trips, so this is reall urban driving scenario.
    I'm keeping a spreadsheet for my own interest so ask me in a few months for an update

    97 A4 2.8 V6 Quattro. I usually get 375-250, but I'm sure I can hit over 400 no problem. Seattle, Washington.

    On my long 440 mile journey home with my new baby I averaged 28.4mpg crusing between 70-90mph. My normal daily journeys however is averaging 16-20mpg.

    My S3 average 21.4 during the 13k I put on her, so if I can get 18mpg from the RS3 through daily spirited driving habits I'll be happy with that.

    Its a bit like the Calsberg advert - the seller says the ve-h-hi-cle is capable of 39mpg......the purchaser, under the influence of adrenalin says WTF, who cares........

    But the reality is...... if anything less than 20mpg is a genuine concern then you bought the wrong car or you live in a place where 97+ Ron is in dollars $......so lets be at least accurate and consistent with the commentary and forget the mpg - yes the mpg is important, yes its mega costly compared to a Ford Fiesta (or aircraft carrier for that matter) and..... yes its very difficult to justify as a reps company car but who cares, I'm no rep.........I told my paper boy it averages 8mpg and he said - w-aaa---lllll and then a--wwweso...meeee and he belived me because its not just an audi........or an S.....or even a 450bhp RS5 which looks the dogs....but because its the unknown carbon fibre wing'd legacy of an RS on a potentially final outing......which is why we all smile when we get the second glance from fellow Audi owners - some think.....no-o-o-o-o-oooooo way there are only a few in the country.....some think, yeah its the cheap mans RS with only 2 exhausts, some even think its best option Audi can come up with before the new model comes out - but to answer all those critics and those who have sampled and tried this beautiful avant looking sportback as a deliberate wolf in sheeps clothing , let me say this - "Whitey" to answer your mates question, when his RS3 finally arrives - if he is your real mate and he sinks the metal, you should be thinking life insurance before an mpg consuption!!
