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

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.
