I get 300 miles for £75ish in my manual S3 (£1.39 per litre if you want to do the calculations). My journey is mixed about 30% town, 30% motorway and 40% country roads. Its great for overtaking the 40mph brigade on the country roads an has better mpg than my last car, which was the V8 version of the S4 and cost £75ish for 220 miles.
I will probably miss it in May when I swap it for the 3L TDI A4, but I hope £75 gets me closer to 500 miles. At least I should have a smile on my face when I visit a Shell garage every other week rather than once a week.
Are you haveing the new 240BHP A4? If so would be interested to know your thoughts on comparing the acceleration and handling to the S3 and also what MPG you generally get.
I am now averaging about 30mpg, taking it easy in the morning and then driving a bit harder on the way home for a bit of fun! However, doing over 20k miles a year and with fuel prices getting higher it has started to make me think about the 3.0TDi A4 or A5 but I just wonder if they will feel a little boring, not sound as nice and not be as quick (even though on paper they are about on a par). Part of me thinks do I hold out for the new S3 next year which I assume will be about 10% better on fuel and be cheaper than A4 or A5!
