    It's a 1.8t 150hp. My over all average is 35.8mpg and going up since I renewed the pcv system.

    I hit 40mpg on a motorway trip in the 2.5tdi the other day. Was quite happy to see that.

    Its gradually increased since I purchased it due to carrying out abit of maintenance engine-wise.

    49 mpg out of a 1.8t ????? in an A4 ??? never in a month of Sundays is that accurate unless you rolled downhill all the way.... 1.8t will give 35 to 40 at the very best and thats motorway cruise in a lightweight 2 wheel drive A3

    I agree, I struggle to get that on my 1.9TDI 130 but back to the topic I managed to get 52MPG over 300 miles which has been my personal best I wasn't hanging about either :D

    Ive been busted.

    Ok the comute to work is pretty much down hill and i usually cruise at 50-55 mph. The drive home i see aprox 35mpg driving conservativly.

    I do how ever see spot on 500 miles to a tank full.

    Using a MPG caculator my real-world MPG average is 33.34, covering 500 miles using 15.00 gallons of fuel.

    Here's my best... 20miles, 55-60mph all the way, one short uphill stretch and one moderate/long downhill bit. Rest is dual carriageway. Dullest drive of my life. Oh and it's a 1.9 quattro Saloon.

    Agreed! More meaningful than a photo after a 10 minute downhill coast!

    Spooky!

    have any of you guys adjusted your mpg consumption with VCDS so it reads just about spot on ?

    I have! the other month I installed cruise and trip on my car and the DIS was well out was showing average of 44 but when filled up it was 49 so have adjusted it and will check it next time I fill up

    I've got a Fuelly account as shown in my sig, click on it for accurate MPG readings for each fill up, best was 49mpg on the autobahn between Holland/Germany/Poland.

    It's actually a really good tool for comparing other cars like-for-like and as MPG threads crop up all the time, it would be great if some more forum members could log theirs on that website so we can get some good comparisons :)

    im not on fuelly but ill have to set up and have ago sometime....your 130 is very much around the same mpg as mine tbh i just google fuel calculators and put in my info from one fill up to the next but i probably see more of the mid 40's to higher 40's with my type of driving.... fair bit of dual carriageway then the mrs tats around which then knocks it back down again

    + 1, it is a good site. I wonder if it's possible to set up an ASN group or something?

    Average over the last 19000 miles is 37.93mpg. to be fair I only ever drive long journeys on clear motorways around 70mph.
