Computer pretty much says 22/23 mpg most of the time.
I have a mate with an Astra VXR and he gets 600 kms out of a tank sometimes?!
I was shocked too with my new S3, Iv'e been driving it really carefully to run it in and struggle to get 26mpg on a motorway run!!
The officical figures are 31mpg combined!
At this rate I was getting over 100 miles more out of my old S3!!
JamS3 said:On my previous 2 8L S3's I was constantly getting around 32mpg over all types of driving and always around 340miles out of a full tank, 200 to half a tank everytime.
And no I didn't hang about in it either!
Like people say though its a new car and hopefully will improve in time
If your car is stock then you won't be getting much benefit from Tesco 99, although it won't hurt it.I seem to get around 19-23mpg out of my S3 Sportback which is currently stock. Mostly short journeys round town, rarely do any distance on the motorway but have seen it in the high 20s on those rare occasions. I always use Tesco 99 or Shell/BP super premium. Heavy right foot though.. Used to get similar figures out of my Leon FR 2.0 TSI so it's more my driving for sure..
99% of the time I use Tesco 99. I only ever use Shell/BP when Tesco 99 not not available and want to avoid normal fuel.If your car is stock then you won't be getting much benefit from Tesco 99, although it won't hurt it.
BP Ultimate is only 97 RON so you are paying a premium for fuel others sell as their regular.
