    So last week I had a tonne of meeting sat work that were out on site. Because I am stupid and decided to buy an S3 to do 20k mpa I decided why not see if i can make a single tank of fuel last over 400 miles, I have been close before but never managed it. So after driving in efficiency mode at very slow speeds I managed to get 513 miles from a single tank. This was 70% motorway driving, 20% town driving and 10% commuting stop start traffic.

    I must say I was amazed at this. I should also note that this S3 is running APR stage 1 with the APR carbon intake, APR turbo muffler delete and a Milltek non res catback stsyem (not valved). Its proven its worth at 428bhp and 440lb/ft (high torque map).

    Do we have any challengers?

    Wow impressive. We have 2340 miles on our new S3 coming from a Q5 and I must say I'm happy with a constant 35mpg in comfort mode. The S3 has really surprised me on long runs with 38mph being achievable. However, 45 is very good! Out of interest are you running 99 octane?

    Well I got 435 miles at 65mph average and about 2 hours sat in London traffic. I reckon with air con off, 60mph... you’d pull 500 miles out of it.
