    2.5TDi Avant Quattro Sport - 2003, 30K miles
    The DIS reports on average 34.7 MPG, which for a mix of around town and motorways seems correct when I brim it with fuel, use it and brim it again. On a 200 mile round trip to Birmingham though, I brimmed it, did the trip (average speed of 75-80mph), brimmed it when I got back and it was doing 38.9 mpg which for a 2.5 6 cylinder diesel sounds good to me.

    Cannot wait to see the 1.9 TDi owners, who have had their cars chipped and claim to be doing 60 mpg....yeah rite !

    2.5Tdi Cab ('03 and 57k) and I'm getting about 34mpg around town and about 39/40 ish on long runs, especially with the cruise control on when on French autoroutes. Not bad really considering the size of the engine. My previous a4 2.0 tdi got about 40 in town and 50+ on the mway, which was magic!

    3.0V6 sport quattro, very similar experience to Dan, it varies between risable (250miles off a tank when completely in town on short runs) to really quite good (430miles of on a long all m-way cruises to Cornwall/Lake District etc)...

    With my usual mixture of driving I see about 340miles out of a tank most times. Never, ever, believe any "official" mpg figures, and if anyone says they're getting seemingly unbelivably good mpg, they're probably not calcuating it right (and certainly not driving it hard enough)!

    non chipped 130 TDI following a Vectra+caravan at 50mph for 350 miles accross france does returned 60mpg believe me! (so boring!). at one point i acutally had 1100 miles between range left and milage done.

    Usually though 38mpg due to town driving easily over 40 if doing long journeys at 80mph.

    1.8T -190 avant. Just got in from wk end away dis said 31.8mpg- mainly motorways with some country lanes.

    I have only owned the car for just over a week i used to have a Golf GT TDI 130 which did 48mpg with a couple of MTB's on roof on the same run!

    The S-line is much more fun though!

    B5 S4 - commute is a mix of twisty b-roads and heavy city traffic - 20mpg.
    Weekend playing with some beans - 16mpg
    Motorway cruising with some rep chasing - 21mpg
    Either way the S4 totally rapes me on fuel, but I still smile when I bury the throttle

    Lazy feckers! Why don't you walk if it's such a short journey. No wonder obesity is on the rise :moa:

    I've got a 3.0 Quattro Sport and normal use is 22 mile journey to work which is mostly motorway. I drive it like a grannie on purpose on this journey & can get up to 32mpg when using 99RON unleaded, slightly better than normal unleaded. If I feel like ragging it a bit though the ave mpg drops like a stone!! Drive like a grannie & keep revs below 2500rpm, you'll be surprised what mpg you can actually get. It may be boring but the hole in your bank account isnt too much fun either!!

    Mine will do 60mpg if I reset it and cruise at 50mph, not very realistic though. Had the range hit 720 miles once as well but 550-600 is about right.

    1.9 TDI 130 SE Avant with 114k, drove from bristol to Glasgow and got 54mpg. Normal driving around town with some short 50 mph hops usually returns mid to high 40s.
    Im well happy with that, and with the oomph I get when I put the foot down

    Why buy a 3.0v6 to then drive like a granny?! :jump:

    Lol, each to his own :icon_thumright: - it basically does show that driving style and driving conditions are hugely influential on the mpg you can get, although of course there's no escaping the fact that a 1.9TDi will get you significantly further up the road without re-fuelling! If prices cary on the way they're going at the moment I'm going to be getting back on my push bike :scared2:

    And i stand by that still. My 1.9 diesel 306 wasn't as economical as this and that was doing a good 53-55 mpg on a run. Even if the computers arent to be believed its doing noticeable more than 55mpg.
