Hi glyne, same for me, I'm averaging 42 mpg at the moment although I've done a lot of motorway driving so that may have brought the average up a little.

It is important to understand that offical fuel consumption figures bear absolutely no close relation to actual fuel consumption on the road in everyday use. Official figures are based on a rolling road formula in virtually laboratory conditions,and are intended simply to provide a basis for comparison with othe cars or manufacturers. So, for example, on a rolling road there is noair resistance to affect the consumption figures. The following link explains the process

Click on the "Fuel consumption figures explained" link

fwiw, I get around 40mpg with my TDi SE Stronic 177HP. This is a mix of urban and rural, gentle driving (Official figure is almost 50mpg). In general, real life is round 20-30% worse than published figures

The Honestjohn site has been campaigning for years for real mpg's to be made available, the site builds its figures from users posting their real experiences rather than the works of fiction required by the EU from the manufacturers. Real world seems to be about 20% less than official figures across the Q3 range.

No direct link to the Q3 stat's so you will have to scroll down if interested and the more of us that post the more accurate they will become hopefully.

Just been on a 50 mile run - mix of rural and urban roads with my TFSI SE and the average was 37.6mpg. I think that's fairly good for a petrol engine. I will be testing it on a motorway drive soon.

I have certainly been impressed with the FWD 140 engine and manual gearbox- Stop Start doesn't get used a great deal now that I take a cross-country route to work, but consistently on a 21 mile drive to work, the car computer is indicating 55+ mpg.

Again, I used Motorways a reasonable amount too and a 30 litre refuel gives near-on360 miles of driving - I am driving down to Newquay next month, and can't wait to see how it does on a really long "cruise"

Had mine just two weeks, but avering nearly 40mpg over a mix of driving. That's with a 2.0 TDi quattro. So I'm happy with that so far and presumably it can only get btter as it loosens up.

Mine is now 5 weeks old. Covered 1600 miles.

For the first 600 miles it averaged 45mpg, but this did involve quite a few long runs. We then went on holiday to Cornwall, a 350 mile trip each way. Setting the cruise control at a sedate 65 there and back resulted in 54mpg. Overall we did 1000 miles in a week and it averaged exactly 50mpg.

No complaints


Hoping for 40+ mpg in normal every day motoring.
