    Hi everyone, i'm new to the forum. Just bought an Audi A4 2.0 tdi 180 Quattro SE Automatic 2014 plate to replace my A6 Le Mans that just broke.

    What sort of range does everyone get to a tank?
    My A6 2.0 tdi 170 did about 630 miles to a tank. This one is looking quite a bit thirstier, which i can understand now its driving four wheel drive.

    Has it the same gearbox as the A6? My Quattro is manual so will not compare, but it does reasonably well and the need to drive four wheels seems not too much of an effort.

    I'm not sure if they are the same, what range do you get from your quattro?

    I can’t give an exact figure but somewhere over 500 mls. The tank filling differs between my B8.5 saloon and the B8 Quattro. The latter I can fill to the brim carefully but I have to stop filling the saloon as soon as the pump lead detects that fuel is backing up and if I try to fit in more, it sprays it out. The Quattro is also used mostly by my partner so I don’t fill it regularly.

    Nice one Thankyou.
    My A6 used to return a solid 630 or more if I drove carefully.

    I have also just noticed this morning that the engines not getting up to 90 degrees, even on a long run. and if i slow down in town it gets lower.
    My last A6 ran perfectly at 90 no matter the weather or speed. Do you think the thermostat is gone?

    Being a little pedantic, I would say “No”,but blaming predictive text for missing the idiom you clearly aimed for, I would confirm that there is a chance that your thermostat has failed. Having said that, I think I and others have found that B8.5s tend to be over-cooled and often do not reach 90’ if driven carefully, especially in Winter.

    Thankyou, the idiom i was gong for was missed due to fast writing and being at work multitasking.
    I will also post back once i have finished the full tank, and give an update on the range achieved

    Update on my A4 quattro.
    The garage i bought it from have just replaced the thermostat and its housing free of charge. It now runs perfectly at 90 once heated up, so it definitely was the thermostat.
    Hopefully this will increase the mpg and tank range, but we will see. I have just filled the tank to the brim and zeroed the milometer.
    I'll give another update once its near empty.
    On another note, as i'm not sure how long the thermostat had been knackered for the previous owner, could this have ruined the DPF? Or let it clog up as the engine hadn't warmed up fully.
    Also what mpg are people getting in their quattro 180hp 2 litre diesel?

    Glad to learn that your heating problem was so simply solved. Why did the dealer have to replace the thermostat housing? Was it severely corroded?
