HTC said:Full tank seems to get me about 360 at the moment just cruising about. So probably about 130 for £20.
I think thats pretty good going, allbeit with a light right foot at the moment.
sitrials said:i'll get 300miles consistantly from a full tank but that includes a quick blat here and there, i'm considering driving to spain in it in july so i better sit at 80mph or i'll be filling up every hour!

The MFA is notoriously inaccurate on VAG cars, but your's will possibly have bigger injectors so will be more inaccurate.grathies said:I cant keep my car driving sensibly for long enough to get an idea, and with the mods when you put your foot down the fuel goes pretty quickly (The onboard computer lies anyway but Ive seen it down in the 6mpg region a fair amount on the motorway)

It is possible to have the MFA recalibrated using Vagcom, there was a thread about it on TT forum, block 117 IIRC.
On cruise though, your S3 should actually be a little better on fuel than a stock one, due to the bigger turbo being less restrictive and allowing more efficeincy when not under load.
TheSpaceCowboy said:Too many conversions to figure out how many miles I get per U.S Gallon per Buck but from a full tank I get around 350 (with a leaking rad and bad oil)
*Edit* Oh you muppet you put bucks instead of pounds I thought you were american.
trust me i drive my car the way its ment to be driven! but its only a daily driver!!!simch said:Er, clearly your "U" and "S keys are working as they are used in the word "Bucks!", so no, I did not mean "pound" I meant what I wrote "P O N and D" keys.........get it now.....?
You keep your eye on your MPG. Maybe coast down hills, stick to 45mph on A roads?
I'll just get on driving my car like it's meant to be and make sure I type what I mean!
