    2.0 tdi (190).
    Usually driven on motorways and over the last 17k miles averaged 48mpg.

    Typically leave it on dynamic mode as driving in heave traffic at rush hour the on demand power is nice to have. I did use economy mode for a while and that did make a difference but not by more than a few mpg.

    Think you also need to add more info like model year, quattro (or not), BHP of the 3.0 engine and any modifications (remap etc).

    This'll be a fun one, 2016 2.0tdi Avant, 190 ultra remapped to 222, auto and quattro. Everyday driving mix between town and motorway at 70/50mph, averaging 33mpg. Convinced somethings not right with it but made a few posts on Facebook and it seems to be a common issue with the 2.0 being underpowered for the weight of the car

    I've a 2016 2.0tdi Avant 190 ultra too and get far better than 33mpg. I would get the "map" removed as many of them just trick the engine to increase fuel pressure.

    With all the different engine options, gearboxes, 2/4 wheel drive, driving modes, car set-up (tyre pressures for example), driving styles threads like this don't really provide anything meaningful unless we get thousands of detailed responses. It might help those who have issues and so on the extremes.

    I got the map done just over a month ago to see if it helped with the fuel economy, as it was just as bad before, if not worse... I'm trying fuel additives at the moment and if they make no difference the next step is a terraclean, other than that I guess it's just a fact of life ‍♂️

    You don't have an Ultra, you have a quattro model. The Ultra model on the C7 is front wheel drive only. If you want economy then you then the best model was the Ultra. As you are asking a 2.0TDi engine to lug around a heavy car and power all 4 wheels. Economy wise the 6 pot TDI quattro could be a little better depending on driving style, however it also bring a hold load more issues with engine complexity when things go wrong.

    I've got an MY17 2.0 TDI Avant quattro (sline) and the DIS average is 39MPG, over the cars 25K miles with approx 50/50 motorway/town driving.

    So we've got pretty much identical cars (given mine has 50k more miles) but over the last 1000 miles I've averaged 32mpg (at most). Also a mix of motorway and town driving, really doesn't seem right to me.

    I bought my 2015 2.0 Avant 190 Ultra manual recently, hoping to get somewhere near the 69mpg quoted for the automatic gearbox (maybe above 55-60 MPG). I am sorely disappointed.

    The roads I drive regularly are almost a perfect mix of roads- small amount of town, then free-flowing A roads and dual carriageway ending with a small amount of town driving. I also drive in efficiency mode, smoothly with anticipation, conserving momentum and short-shifting gears where I can.

    I am yet to get above 44mpg average in this thing, and just on the long dual carriageway sections I've not averaged more than about the same.

    I have a big 2009 C4 Grand Picasso that, fully loaded with people, will do 53 MPG all day long and nearer 57 MPG on a long motorway journey.

    We also have 3 old Xsara Picassos (two with 2.0 HDI engines, and one with 1.6 HDI) that easily beat the Audi with much older engine tech. Even the 2.0 HDIs will do average of 47mpg, and the 1.6 HDI we never managed to provoke into going under 55mpg.

    I can't see that even with the auto gearbox and no one in the car that the Ultra could ever get near 69 MPG.
