Around town - stop/start etc - 21.5-22.5mpg
Motorway steady at 85mph - about 24-26mpg - lower mpg at 70mph funnily enough - I think because the engine wasn't at peak torque revs at 70mph (about 2900-3000prm) so wasn't braething as well as it should.
Peak torque revs is about 3300-3500rpm.
Drove from North of England to Liege in Belgium last year at a steady 85 (peak torque revs) and got 29.5mpg...best yet!
Thrash it around and you'll see about 18mpg
Hope this helps.
maybe it is possible then I think I'd actually get myself stressed trying to drive as conservatively as possible. I tend to drive on decent A roads here but still have quite a bit of overtaking to do and then town driving either end. I'll need to experiment and see if I can reach this fantastic 40 figure!
Side question, was there or is there ever been reports of Audi making cars with odd engines, or drive train when at the the end or start of the new model?
Like the RWD Mondeos when they was first taking over from the Sierra or Sierras being registered as late as mid 90s?
