    Hi,

    I'm considering getting rid of the S3 and going for a new S4, but I've been reading some posts over on one of the A5/S5 forums regarding poor MPG on the 3.0 V6 engine......as poor as 9 miles to the gallon!!!!

    I'm just wondering what real life MPGs any of you S4 owners are getting at the moment.

    Cheers.

    Agree completely. I can occasionally get a few more mpg if I'm very careful but about 25mpg is the usual average for me.

    Cheers all. I take it Necroscope and Ultramagnus both have S4s as I see Auroan hasn't.

    I mean I know what I should be expecting but then those guys with the A5s would have been expecting that too I'm sure.

    I'm getting 20mpg (overall). Thats 1800miles and without a computer reset approx 800miles on a dual carrageway and the rest in town, mostly heavy traffic. I had an A4 2.0TFSI Quattro DTM Ed and over about 20k miles I acheived 26mpg. I'm pretty happy with the 6mpg less that I am getting with the V6. The bhp difference is a 113 more on the S4 that the DTM.

    My 2010 S4 gets 26.6 mpg on the road averaging almost 70 mph. (That means running 80+ for some periods) Get about 22 around town...Have never been more pleased with an Audi..the new V6 motor is a WINNER. This is with manual trans, sport diff, plus lots of other goodies. Only 1700 miles on the clock as well.

    Seems like a long time since I last posted,,, but I can confirm that average fuel consumption of the S4 is indeed shite...!! My average since new (9000 miles) is 16.8 Which is actually worse than my old 4.2V8, that managed about 19

    Still, I guess fuel economy isn't everything.........
