    Alright guys,

    I've had my 2013 A4 Avant 2.0TDI 150 for just over a month now, as much I love the car I can't help but be disappointed with the mpg figures. On normal locals runs with a mixture of town and dual carriageway I'm seeing 35-38 and when I recently drove from Aberdeen to Edinburgh it only rose to around 42mpg.
    The car has had the recall remap carried out by the dealer prior to me purchasing it so I'm worried that this has maybe affected the mpg, has anyone had any experience of that?

    Cheers

    Kev

    Sounds about right. my wife's one had a long term average of 43 on the DIS and struggled to get 50mpg on a long run.

    Be thankful you didn't go for the 3.0 tdi if mpg is a concern,

    I am fortunate if I get 300 miles per tank.

    My old man has a 2.0tdi 170 allroad and is seeing a good 6-8 mpg more than me through town and on long drives, that's what made me think mine was pretty poor as I would of thought with a more powerful engine and the added fuel consumption of 4wd drive his would of been worse.
    Also his hasn't had the recall done yet so I was thinking that was also making a difference.

    Ive got a 2012 B8.5 Allroad 2.0TDI Quattro (177PS). It's had the software update. No noticible reduction in power, but I'd say the fuel efficiency is marginally down. Could be coincidence as at this time of year the temperature effects consumption. I get 500 out of a tank, averaging 42mpg. That's standard Shell or BP diesel.

    Get on a straight piece of road, boot the car for a few hundred yards and keep in 2nd gear, keep the revs just under the red and blast all the rubbish out of the exhaust

    Then reset your computer , your power & MPG should return ................ you need to do this once a blue moon

    Your engine will open up after 50,000 miles and give better mpg

    You need to fill the car to the brim and tells us how far you can get on a full tank of diesel

    Having a similar query with my A4 Avant. 2013 1.8 TFSI 180bhp.

    Im getting about 26 MPG average and its never seen 40mpg!

    I was considering having it re mapped to 220bhp but would that make it worse?

    Cheers

    You could kill two birds with one stone. On higher mileage Audis I've used a can of Forte diesel conditioner. Apply straight to fuel filter. Run hard in 2nd and 3rd gear. On completion, renew fuel filter and top up with fresh diesel before fitting.
