Mine is a S3 if I drive sensibly I get 29,9mpg
Mine is averaging 24.5 at the moment
im guessing low 20mpg.
Took a 150 mile trip to York a few weeks ago, driving like a fanny I got around 400 miles out a full tank which cost £85
I wish I'd ever managed to get 400 out of a full tank, most I've managed is 380 on a steady run to Essex, worked out about 29 mpg
I didn't think the 1.8 was that thirsty. My 2.4 v6 gives me 24 mpg average and aboutn 340 miles on a tank.
I average 29 mpg with average driving! Long motorway journeys ive had the average clock reading 38 mpg
Been an oil burner for many years now basically for the better fuel figures and torqey driving style. If I went petrol now I would do a lgp conversion on a six pot.
Anyone running a lgp on a 1.8t,2.0 or 3.0 litre?
32 motorway mostly and i dont drive slow
if some are geting low 20's get them looked at
Get a calculated 31mpg on mine, mostly driving sensibly!
I had the 150bhp version of the 1.8T running 221bhp courtesy of r-tech and I found it to be very economical for a petrol turbo, when I changed it for an astra vxr (2.0T) my fuel bill went up by 50% and then I changed for s3 8p and it went up by about 20% again, most weeks I spend about twice what I did in fuel on the 1.8t doing the same journeys ! That being said it doesn't produce nearly as much torque as either vxr or s3 8p
My overall average is 31mpg, but on my 8 mile daily commute I get into the very early 40's
I was driving at 60 and 70mph to be fair m8 lol
My idea of a steady drive on the motorway was 75-80 lol
Fully loaded our avant 190 s line q gives us 32-33 on the motorway, can't quite get 400 miles out of a tank,
seriously? how can you get mpg into the 40's whats the secret?
we had a mk4 r32 before our current 1.8t and my wife only does 10 miles a day and the mpg is down at the mid twentys which is starting to get a bit frustrating considering the r32 was regularly around the 31 mark for the same journey.
does anyone have experience of the mpg increasing greatly on these with a map?
27-30 odd for mine
Mid twentys is abit low but short journeys constantly always make for less mpg! Is the car modded at all jamie p?
it only has a milltek exhaust fitted apart from that its totally standard engine wise, just a bit dissapointed really because apart from the higher fuel consumption my wife and i love the car
Jamie p try putting a panel filter in either k&n or pipercross as your car will benifit from breathing easier!
