I guess this may be the first of these mpg threads, but what are you guys getting in your A3s?
Could you kindly state engine/gearbox/trim and also type of journies done (eg...mainly city/highway/mixed/(A/B) roads (40-50mph/60-80kmh)
Anyone with 30TFSI MHEV care to share? Also good to know what other engine types are getting, even the S3s :)

I’ve had my 35 petrol S-Tronic S-Line since spring, during which time I’ve done about 1000 miles of mixed urban, extra urban and motorway and I’m averaging 43 mpg (from two fills, including running in to 700 miles) compared to my mk vi Golf which was averaging 37 (though that included 2 mile commutes, which the A3 hasn’t done yet. )

I have done around 9K miles with my 30TFSI MHEV stronic. Mostly city and motorway. My average consumption is around 41 mpg. I will attach a picture with the exact figure.

ive done 700 miles in my 35 tfsi manual and have averaged 38 mpg, pretty much all of that has been urban. Only really been on two motorway trips with it (more than a junction or two ) and then i got 48 mpg
 
35 TFSI Manual - done 3200ish miles.
On a trip to work (3 miles) I get from 32-40 mpg usually (spending on the weather and if I pay attention to the mpg!).
On longer trips on A roads and motorway, I usually see 45+ easily.

I’m getting 28.5 long term in my S3. Not that much worse than my mk7.5 GTI was.

Mix of motorway and city driving now, I’m getting 28.8 mpg in my S3
Done 1470 miles in it since end of April. Not looking good for my 5000 mile pcp deal

I think the car will do what it says on the tin regarding mpg...but as most have said it depends on many factors to achieve this. So in the real world do not expect these numbers quoted by Audi to be realized.....anywhere btween 35-45mpg seems to be the average range.

In my Tiguan lease I just handed back after 4 years I only did 17500 miles out of 40k.
They should take that into account lol after all it’s all vw.

35TFSI or 30TFSI?
Apologies, it's the 35tfsi manual. I generally do 30 miles per day, half of it town and half motorway.

I've done two fairly decent journeys up and down the country at 200 miles each which was mainly motorway so it's had a broad range of running.

A3 8Y 35 TDI automatic, on about 3.5k total miles, long term avr. about 58.1mpg (slowly creeping up), doing daily trips of 15-20 miles avr. 58-70mpg with most of the route via A1/motorways (keeping at 70mph~, stretch of 1-2 miles in urban areas). last fill up of full tank of fuel gave me 755miles on car cockpit display. mainly efficiency drive select, sometimes dynamic. 1 person in car, not much excess weight.

A 2.8 journey to my work which consists of around 8 junctions/roundabouts I can get up to 36 if I really try. That’s usually without stopping the whole way. Normally I’m lucky if I get 30mpg. Pretty disappointed with the mpg to be honest. I came from a BMW M140 which had a 3.0 lump in the front and that got the same mpg through the town. I also had an A3 1.4 tfsi before which drover better and was also better on fuel. I bought this to save a bit of cash but I’m in the same boat except with a slower car! Totally defeats the purpose….
