Having just done around 4k miles my fuel consuption was in the high 30s, however I attained speeds well in excess of everyday driving Won't say oin here what those speeds were but the book quote is about right'MPG average 48.8'
hilly10 - do you really mean 48.8 or should this be 38.8? This seems very high compared with other comments re the 2.7tdi, although I have a 2.7 on order I'm getting cold feet over the diesel/petrol price differential and am seriously considering cancelling the order and waiting for the 2.0t multitronic (November according to the French Audi site) But if 48.8 is achievable then I'll probably stick with the diesel.
Those figures sound very good hilly10, thanks for the feedback - appreciated. I'll be taking my A5, when I get it, to France regularly so looking forward to the empty, smooth motorways and some of the challenging 'B' roads (and the wine, food, sunshine, beaches............!)
