      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.

      That's very impressive!

      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.

      06 6spd sedan 70k with no mods
      When I drive
      16 mpg city
      23 mpg highway

      When the GF drives
      17.8 mpg city

      My numbers are averages, her mileage is from last week.
      Just changed the fuel filter and ignition coils so hoping these increase slightly

      04 Tip
      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
