Iíve now driven the car about 3000 miles and am averaging over 33 mpg with mostly highway driving ( calculated ) with best tank of 34.6 mpg. One thing Iíve noticed is that if I keep my highway speed below ~ 68 ish mph my fuel economy per display will jump to high 30ís and low 40ís....I just donít have the discipline or patience to drive that slow. Are the pre-fix cars as speed sensitive as the post fix cars?

My pre fix 2015 A6 TDI shows a similar jump in displayed mpg when the speedometer reads high 60s. I only showed discipline on one tank of diesel. I had to drive over 800 miles in a single day. I set the cruise for 68 mph. I averaged 43 mpg and got 823 miles on a single tank!

Air resistance goes up at the cube of speed, so around that does is when you will really start to notice a drop in efficiency on any car, unless there is something else like bad gear ratios holding efficiency back at lower speeds.
