Sorry to throw your maths out, but to keep the thread accurate, quattro's have a 66 litre tank
That's from the 2003 A4 model range brochure.
Nowt wrong with my maths mate, my owners manual lists all the quattro's with a 63l tank. Having had mine completely empty i can verify this too.
Ive got a 1.9 quattro and i managed to get 605 miles on a single tank once but that was leaving it until the computer was reading 0 before i refilled. I think i worked it out at about 46mpg if i remember rightly, but that was all motorway work at about 70-80mph
Normally i get about 25-30mpg though, haha i dont like hanging about. lol
would really like your opinion as its a burning issue for me- i filled up £50 and i got 240 miles in my b6 2.5tdi quattro, now i must admit i have only had the car 2 weeks so been quite keen, however, the dis stated i avg 25mpg on the 2 setting and 1 setting it regularly displays anything from 15 to 25mpg, with short journeys though mainly and a heavy right foot. would u say my dis is faulty as when i did the maths and converted myself i worked out approx 30mpg???
any thoughts or tips as i'm a bit concerned there's something wrong????
ps i checked my manual and it states 63 litres- nov 03 model.
I worked it out manually and I got 30.75mpg if my sums are correct- 250miles,135p/litre,£50 fuel,4.55l in a gallon=8.13gallons~250=30.75mpg. Dis showed 25mpg overall- I have filled up again and reset- now dis showing 18.9mpg???? Quite puzzling tbh??? Also, not convinced redex or similar will help as i assume thats for the fuel filters, but the cars running pretty smooth- I think its gotta be the short journeys- starts and stops etc?????
I get 33mpg as an all round average on mine, so it's not that far off. You must drive it pretty hard though to get less than me!
Sporty sound? Dont get ahead of yourself... Its a diesel.
i know mate, but so glad i got the v6 quattro- tell you what its the best sounding diesel i've ever owned, and i've had a few- mind you i cant believe i'm a german fanboy now, back in the day i was a japboy only- i sometimes miss the good old drift days of my neesaan 200sx and 300zx's..... ok, ok, sacarilidge i know , guess i've grown up a "little" bit since!!!
Chuck the cats out and it will sound even meaner ! By far the best diesel sound you can get on full throttle !
