Ok, went through the last 10 pages and found no current mpg topic.
What kind of real world mpg are you guys getting?
List your year, sedan/avant and powertrain mods.
Then of course your mpg. % of city/highway/interstate. Best mpg youve gotten would be nice as well.
2004 sedan (sold recently) no power mods, all-season hi-perf tires - average city & highway was 16-18mpg which included 60-70% city driving; quite a bit of stop and go. Highway was almost always 23.2mpg
2005 sedan (wife's car) no power mods, all-season hi-perf tires - much better than the '04 for some reason. 18+ city/ highway mix, highway mileage is 27mpg! This was always a head scratcher for me yet I tested it several times on long trips.
There's 2 reasons for this thread
A) someone may get piss-poor mileage and realize they have an underlying problem.
B) I'm trying to decide if the mpg of a b6 s4 is something I can deal with.
chipped - unitronic 1+
I installed a new MAF - Coils and Plugs just after getting the S4
I was getting 15-22mpg - plugs appeared to be at the end of life
Now Im getting- 19-25mpg -
All the costs will be paying for themselves here soon.
PS: I don’t beat on my S4...I'm usu good about keeping the RPM's under 4k...unless the 18yo kid with his new GTI wants to get it...then I exercise her for the beat down. lol
