S5 3.0 V6 mpg

Just thinking of upgrading my 3.0 TDi to a S5 V6 or sticking with the TDi but going newer.

Just wondering what real mpg you get?

My tax is £245 per year and the S5 is £300 per year, so it can't use that much more fuel!? Plus petrol is cheaper that diesel so might work out only a bit more.

I only do 8k miles a year. Mine will average an urban drive to work of 10 miles and mostly uphill of 29mpg, coming home, mostly downhill, but still urban and plenty of stop start, not heavy traffic - 36mpg.
Motorway at 75mph = 45mpg
overall average on number 2 of DIS it shows 28mpg.

£40 of v power diesel gets me 165 miles
How do the S5s compare?

I'm not looking for the most economical model, just wouldn't want to get a S5 and have to drive via petrol stations

I never trust any cars dash display. I track my usage here: ‪http://www.fuelly.com/car/audi/s5/20.../450169‬

This is a 2013 b8.5 S5 sportback. My daily drive is a 50mile round trip no motorways, but I travel at times to limit how much I get stuck in traffic.

Currently averaging 22.8 and the best Iíve ever managed doing a longer motorway trip was 29.3. But you donít buy and S5 for economy more for

ive got a 2018 S5 3.0, around town its not great (but mid 20s), but drove it from swindon to great yarmouth (222 miles) recently, had to drive at about 50-70 mph due to traffic (in ECO) and MPG was reading 39.5, i had a full tank in swindon and filled up as soon as i got to great yarmouth and it cost £31 (about 116.9 per litre).

as a comparison my 2010 A5 2.0 tdi reads about 45mpg and cost me £30 for the same trip

i was a bit concerned about the MPG initially as i do loads of miles but the S5 is just terrific, drive like an old man and its fine, thump it when you fancy some fun and it just flies.

I'm sure my road tax was more though as you have to pay that new 5 year government fine for having a nice car on top

Remember when looking at responses here or elsewhere UK MPG is different from US MPG!

Over the last 7k miles my average has been 23 mpg. Will do 30-35mpg on a steady motorway cruise or 15mpg on a spirited run with lots of welly. I usually get 250-300 miles to a tank. Mine's custom mapped to 450 bhp btw.

Not sure why the difference but I just paid my vehicle tax and it was £250.
I have never cared much about fuel efficiency (I bought an S5...) but I seem to get around 250-300 miles out of about 50 litres.

I don't know what mpg is. Its probably one of those terms used by people who measure their height in feet and their weight in rocks. I was born in the 60's so I'm a child of metrication. These older people just love to hang onto their imperial measurements.

EDIT: Yes I quoted miles. But that's because those same people refused to change the signs to km.

I don't understand. You can't consider MPG as a factor on buying an S5 or not?? That's not what an S5 is about.

I bought mine because of it's SPG............ smiles per gallon

Thanks for your input!

My average mpg between fill is 26.8 working out the litres put in and the mileage done.

Looking at you S5 guys, the average seems to be around low to mid twenties - So my very basic calculations puts the S5 using about 20% more fuel compared to my 3.0tdi

I need to check, but petrol is about 15% cheaper?

I know it's the wrong question to ask, but just adding it into the mix of what car to get next, stick with diesel or go back to petrol

Yep yours was mapped at the same place as mine!

Is that just a remap? Any pulley upgrades, other mods?

This is what is attracting me to the S5! Wanting more than 310bhp now. And you can't beat the noise of petrol explosions!

No other mods Dave, that's just engine and gearbox map.

I've personally never owned a 3.0tdi to compare it with but I can say the S5 is a lovely drive, loads of fun, yet also very smooth and refined and quiet if you want it to be.

After a year of ownership I still love it and can't get enough of driving it.

I would recommend the S5.

I still like my TDi, goes and looks well, had it nearly 4 years, still driving nice, smooth and powerful, just got a more itchy sport bug that an S5 could scratch

Whereabouts in Derbyestershire are you? Had a look at a mates S5, but it's a V8.

I'm in a little town called Ripley. You'd be more than welcome to have a drive if you are ever down this way.
The S5 definitely has more or a sporty feel and does make a lovely sound.

Thanks for the offer!

I may take you up on that when I get more serious about the S5!

I have the old 3200 and the fuel consumption is about 10km per litre which is about 28 mpg. Of course if you boot it then it goes down dramatically, at 100kph on the motorway it perhaps gets better but I have never tried cos 180 kph is far more fun!!!!!!

Another 2018 S5 here, My long term average is showing as ~30mpg, a recent 200mile trip had it up to 40mpg. Typically getting around 330miles between fill ups of 48-50 litres. It is a cabriolet so that increases the consumption a bit.

It does cost a bit more than my 3.0 TDi, but not as much as a feared! (I was worried it would be double) And it's only just coming up on its first service at 18k miles so there is a saving there (and I think the services for petrol are cheaper too? Will find out soon). No S-Tronic servicing either.

S5 3.0 V6 mpg

MY 2018 S5 here too. Monday - Friday 20 mile round trip to work in rush hour traffic 22-30mpg. Enjoying the S5 at weekends 20-2mpg. Longer motorway journeys with cruise set to 65-70 and you can get 35-40mpg quite easily. Unsurprisingly donít miss my BMW 435D (3.0 V6 Turbo Diesel) at all!

Comparing real cost mpg the 435D was about 12-15p per mile, the S5 roughly 18-22p per mile.

Here's my DIS stats for the last few years (low mileage, but most journeys are an hour of London crawl then an hour or two of motorways):

2010 S5 Cab:

5726.5 miles, 31 mph, 21.4 mpg, 192:24 hours
3355.9 miles, 31 mph, 21.8 mpg, 109:15 hours
3902.5 miles, 33 mph, 22.7 mpg, 119:28 hours

In reality it tends to be 300-350 miles per tank on premium/super petrol. And my right foot is quite heavy....

I can drive from Plymouth to Glasgow on a tank of diesel in my 3.0tdi and that brings on my "refuel now" light, which is 45 miles to go.
I think the distance is 512 miles, +45 so 550 for cash from a tank.

I don't think that's too bad at all

I made the switch from a 3.0 TDI to a 3.0 S5 just because I thought there was a bit of theatre missing with the diesel. I missed the noise and feel of responsiveness. Obviously it comes at a cost on the fuel front, but towards the end of this year you should see a rise in diesel prices vs petrol. From 2020 global shipping can no long use heavy fuel oils, they need to switch to marine diesel, which will place huge extra demand on the diesel pool, so diesel is likely to get considerably more expensive. So the gap between your TDI vs TFSI fuel bills should be negligible.

Thanks for your input guys

Yep, mpg isn't really the factor when getting an S5!

It's more the benefits or the extras you get on the S5 with of course more power!

Just need to sell my bike and my car and go S5 shopping!

If youíre looking at b8/b8.5 then I also highly recommend getting an MRC stage 2 tune (or similar). The difference is huge especially for the relatively reasonable cost. Though insurance company choices become a bit more limited as a change from 333 to near 500 is a bit more than most companies will touch.

But if your reason for changing is to get more then this adds a lot more!

My mate sold his v8 S4 on the 27th December 2018 and bought a 2013 A5 3.0 tdi. Nice car and goes ok with 245 bhp std. We went up the M69 2 weeks ago and he drove mine. When we got back he said I should have got an S5.
He is now selling his A5 to get a B8.5 S5.

If everything seems to be 'under control',your not driving fast enough

The tunability of the S5 is also another attraction!!

I know about 450bhp is achievable with just a map, is 500 with pulleys? I know the APR hypercharger throttle body gets you over 500, with dual pulleys and using high octane juice near 550bhp is achievable

He is now selling his A5 to get a B8.5 S5.
I would love the V8, purely for it's sound, but it does drink a fair bit and the tax is a bit silly!, think this is why the S5 V6 keeps it's value better than the V8.

Diesels in my opinion need to be remapped! Mine has 310bhp and 480ft/lb and does still put a smile on my face. It can beat the older S3, keep up with the newer S3, not pitched it against an S5 though, but I think it would be close to a standard one with the torque making up for the power difference.

Yamaha R6 - for when the weather is good. But in the UK, this limits me to 500 miles a year!

My MRC Stage 2 (Remap+Intake+Crank Pulley) plus the DSG remap, took my S5 SportBack from 328PS to 471PS and from 454NM to 592NM running on Tesco Momentum or Shell VPower. I know more is available with dual pulleys and throttlebodies, but honestly the change from stock was so significant I think chasing other gains would not provide anywhere close to the power per £ that the initial upgrades provided.

Look forward to hearing if/when you get an S5
