Can some folks chime in here and give me a sense of the gas mileage (city and highway) they are getting on their S5?

Miles per gallon (US)

Thanks,

You can try out fueleconomy.gov? I think they say something like 15 MPG city, 19 hwy.. combined 22, something around that. I have read from 13(or less) to 17 mpg hwy. I think it all depends on how you drive the S5.

There isn't too much difference between the mileage of the S5 and A5.. which is pretty cool :)

Huh, I wish that combined of the city and hwy was higher than hwy. Unfortunately it's inpossible.
I was just checking UK A5/S5 flyer and was amazed to notice that S5 tip has a significantly better mpg than the manual; at least + 5 mpg. Also it's sad not to see A5 TDI on the US order list. This one gets a hwy of almost 40 mpg. Being able to go twice as far might be very interesting to those not hp hungry ones (while 3.0 TDI is still a not bad 230HP or so).
I'd be happy to get to 20 mpg combined on my (stil not delivered) S5.

10,500 miles on my S5. City driving around 17mpg. Highway at 70 mph around 20mpg. Highway at my usual 80mph around 19.2 mpg. Combined to this date (more highway) is 18.3 mpg.

Cruising it's almost 25. Highway average on a 250 mile run about 22. City don't ask.

I'm looking at the brochure now and I see the same thing: the tiptronic S5 gets 5 mpg better than the manual S5. How is this possible? :eek: If this is true I'll easily take the tip over the manual. Im not concerned with gas price as much as the hassle of having to go refill so often.

My S5 did 15-16mpg during break-in.

Now its at 18 mpg, even with more spirited driving.

Incidentely this is about the same MPG as my 2000 S4 2.7 V6 Biturbo, which is interesting because the weights are identical. The FSI is so much cleaner emissions wise though:)

Get it in to high gear soon and your gas milleage will improve also.
