Hey guys (and girls), just wondering what sort of average mileage you get on your cars. and whether its a 6 or 8.
My V6 auto seems to average 11.4L/100km in the city, but when cruising at 60 or 80 the instant usage on the trip computer will read between 5.5L/100km and 7.6L/100km depending on the road and the wind direction.

VN Berlina 5.0 A4
VN 5L auto wagon, does mostly mixed driving, pretty much half and half city/country. Lately it's been delivering 12.5ishL/100km consistently, but if the boot goes in a bit too much then it'll go up to 13.5.

mine used to do around 11L per 100km when i worked about 20 mins from home and it was combination city/motorway driving. now it's closer to 13-14l per 100km as it's only 5 mins from work and it hardly gets up to temp and it's all stop start stuff. V6, but now i've got the g-tech to play with i tend to use it. lots of loud pedal:yeah: :yeah: :yeah: :yeah:

Ok, here's my method.

When I fill my tank, I divide the number of litres I put in to fill by 1% of the total distance travelled since the last fill. Use your odometer.

For example on tuesday I filled up with 35.76 litres and had travelled 277kms. The method would be:

35.76 / 2.77 = 12.909 litres per 100 kms.

Hope this helps.
