On the jetta I can easily get 500-550 miles out of a tank and have a best of 595 miles so 450 is still a far cry from a TDI Jetta based on highway travel and seems a lot closer to what I am seeing on our A3 as well when I hand calc the MPG

When driving highway, doing 75 on cruise (I dont hypermile), I can easily get 500-550 as well. My only 2 trips even remotely like this have 520/13.5gal and 527.5/12.57 (my best trip for 42.0mpg tank average). I have a heavy foot, and drive between 75-80 when traveling on the highway (not pulling), I can only imagine if I actually slowed down, but the A3 easily w/o trying can average 38-42mpg doing 75mph. During the summer I idle alot, typically pull a waverunner on the weekends for trips(idle at the docks for lauching etc etc), and do mostly driving around town (hope on I for exit jumping). My overall average since owning the A3 has been 37.5mpg over 10k miles. I have done two long trips up to my brothers with the waverunner, so roughly 20% of my miles have been pulling a waverunner (492 1-way)

Just out of curiosity what brand and style of tires are on your A3? Ours has continentals and we can't get close to your mileage figures.

Stock Conti's and I use XPD each tank (roughly 4-6oz)

How are you getting 39-40mpg and only 450 miles a tank. 450/13.6 is 33mpg.


I regularly get 500 miles/tank which is about 36mpg

Most were unfortunately. I was one of the few who took the fix option

I'd like to point out that all data I can see online from researching indicates my 2013 A3 has a 14.6 gallon fuel tank capacity.

This information has to be incorrect, I just managed to put 15 gallons in the vehicle after driving it approx 11 miles with a 0 mile range indicated.

Yes I know this is bad for numerous reasons but it was late at night and I had to get home.

So now I'm inclined to think that it has the normal 15.8 gallon capacity like the gas vehicles and the data online is incorrect.

All the 2.0L TDI cars sold in the US came with a 14.6 gallon fuel tank. You can fill up the neck and manage extra fuel, but the tank itself is 14.6 (US) gallons.

Currently I've got a 2011 A3 and previously had a 2009 JSW, but had the same tank capacity.
