Re: how many miles do you get per tank? (p0cket penguins)

I've averaged around 250mile I think. But it really varies based on driving style and I have not been light-footed.<p>To accurately gauge my <I>R</I>'s fuel economy I've been tracking fuel used and distance traveled in an Excel spreadsheet. Here's my summary so far (since I got it April 1st):<p>Total fuel 472.720L (sunoco 94), total cost $305.99, total distance 2721Km, average fuel consumption 17.373L/100Km (13.6USmpg). That's pretty bad and I don't expect it to get much better since I don't drive easy too often. (My wife's XC90 is worse!)<p>From fill-up to fill-up my <I>R</I> has been as good at 15L/100Km (15.68USmpg) and as poor as 20L/100Km (11.76USmpg). <p>Those bad numbers come from late night test-and-tune 1/4mile and 0-60 runs and the better numbers of course come from highway driving.<p>If I set cruise at 120Km/h I've seen the trip computer show 10L/100Km (23.5USmpg).<p>See if you can track your consumption over a few fill-ups to get some good avrages to share in this thread.<p>ps. I run my PS2's at 38psi<p>LTA<p>

I am shocked you guys are getting that much mileage out of a tank. My car is 2 1/2 years old and I mainly drive in the city but I am happy to get 175-200 miles per tank with an average of 12.5 miles per gallon, sounds crazy but that is my experience with this car. It's funny becuase I had a V8 Eddie Bauer Explorer before the R and that got better mileage than my R.

Re: (mike_c70)

I was pretty excited to see this...<p><IMG SRC="http://img87.imageshack.us/img87/1800/fuelremaining2yk.jpg" BORDER="0"><p>The screen first read "510 MILES TO EMPTY", but by the time my camera powered up the car had second guessed itself and began to lower the number pretty quickly (dropped to 450 before I reached the freeway onramp). On a recent long-distance trip with one pitstop I averaged just under 32mpg at an average speed of 66mph, which works out to the high-500 mile range on a full tank. I typically average 21-22mpg in mixed city/highway driving. Not bad for 300 horses. <p>- Tryg

Re: (BlkT5inNM)

I fill when it get to about 3/8th of a tank which is about 180-200 miles. On the road I let it go, fill at the 1/8 or so and get close to 380

230 - 275 miles per tank with 90% backroad romping / 10% highway driving & 93 octane fuel. My wife does much better in her R given her foot is a lot less "leaden" than mine <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: how many miles do you get per tank? (Vipergtsz3)

I always average 250-270 per tankfull. 90% highway driving and 10% city (93 octane). It is kind of amazing with my R that no matter how hard or soft I am on it, city or highway, I am within those #'s every time. I once had a long trip on the highway (no stopping) and got 330. That only happened once. And I am heavy footed most of the time.
