    Me too.

    I just spent close to an hour going through the search, I did find other threads, but they weren't very specific. I'm finding results from 9mpg to 35mpg.

    I'm specifically interested A4's here.

    What I'd like to know is;

    What mpg are you getting, of course,

    but more specifically,

    What driving conditions? (stop and go city, highway, rural roads, etc)

    A4, or M6?

    Rear gear (if known)

    model (T/A, Z28, WS6, SS)

    driving style (drive to have fun, or drive for economy?)

    average cruising speed

    Thanks alot!

    Reason I ask:

    I'm looking for a '00 A4 Camaro SS. I drive conservatively, I learned to do that once I started my 60 mile commute with my 16mpg Jeep. I average about 60-65mph, and my drive consists of about 10 miles of two lane rural roads with about 5 lights, and then about 20miles of highway. I'm just wondering what kind of mileage I can expect to attain, as being able to guestimate that will be able to help me better budget for the car.

    I WILL go to the track, and I WILL get on it, but that will be on the weekends. During the week I'll be trying to get the best mileage possible.

    01 ss.......3:23......drive for fun....a4.........avg speed 5 over the limit......usually 280-300 per tank.......$40 ish per fill up 93 octane.......all conditions

    I average about 260 a tank driving strictly city and with a good amount of accelerating. But I believe Boise's elevation is somewhere close to 2700ft above sea level if that would make a difference.

    To prevent running dry & frying the fuel pump, the fuel light comes on early to leave you with a couple of gallons.
    This is why you usually will pump only 14 into the tank
    One day, I was curious how far I could go before dying. I went til the car was struggling to stay on. I pulled into the nearest lot and filled 2 gallons in and headed to the gas station. I got no light at all. And as soon as it hit the E, it was dying. Is this normal? I guess it's better to be right on the mark telling me I'm empty than right on the mark telling me it's full... What light pops on to say low fuel cuz i dont see the little gas light when I first turn on the ignition...

    *sorry if I hijack the thread for a sec.*

    2000 TA

    I had a 98 Formula before my 00 TA and I noticed that the 98 didn't have a gas warning light. I was driving the 00 home at a check gage's light came on and I was concerned until I noticed I was low on gas. I don't know when they added, but the 98 didn't have it.
