    I would be overjoyed with that tank range....but I have a petrol! Firstly, have you had the car checked out ie: Diagnostic check just to make sure nothing is knackered. Secondly,am not an expert on oil burners but my petrol engine feckin hates sittin in traffic and longs for the old Ingolstadt autobahns where it performs really well. What about the serviceable items....like injectors, filters etc....are you sure it's running with clean gear?

    Running it in Towns and heavy traffic will never give good mpg. Best mpg will be on a good run on a motorway with cruise on .

    A did a drive from glasgow to Blackpool n back and the fuel was a bit better but it was not great makes me think that something is just not right with the car

    I put £86 in mine a few weeks back and returned about 570 miles. About 60% of that was on the motorway and using cruise control. 450 isn't really that bad if its all town driving?

    Run a few tanks of v power. My remapped 140bhp a4 gave 450 around town on normal fuel and 500 on vpower. My 170 Quattro gives me about 350 at most on vpower but the table is smaller and mainly around town
