    Spirited driving: 20ish mpg
    Mixed driving around town etc: 25ish mpg
    Taking is easy/MWay miles; 30+ mpg

    Depends also on whether it has been tuned.

    Not the most frugal of cars but not as thirsty as fast 4wd ricers such as EVOs etc.

    BTW, always use V Power/TESCO 99 if you can.

    Cheers
    Paul

    Normal combined average about 26mpg for me..30ish for Mways and spirited driving about 10 to the gallon. Definitely a thirsty car though no matter what people say!! The amount of times I have to go fill up beggars belief. And yes you can get decent mpg but you gotta drive like a oap.

    I can see as high as 36 mpg but average since owning the car is 25-26, that's with revo stage 1 and always run on v power, and i must say its a lot better than my last s3 1.8t
