    Well just got back from a 390 mile trip to eastbourne and back. got to the local Shell and after filling it up this morning id used 52.7 liters and the car was saying id averaged 38.7 mpg not bad considering the amount of time we spent sitting in traffic. God the lower half of the M1 and most of the M25 was a nightmare but still im super happy how well the S3 ran although the popping the exhaust makes when you change gear is fun!:w00t:
