2015 Audi A3: Fuel Economy Update for January
February 4, 2015
In January, our long-term 2015 Audi A3 added 1,195 miles to its odometer while consuming just shy of 45 gallons of California's premium 91-octane gasoline. All up, this equates to 26.7 mpg for the month.
This result is just a shade below its EPA combined rating of 27 mpg, and bumps its lifetime fuel economy up to 25.7 mpg.
What do you guys think: Is it an example of a turbocharged gasoline engine that lives up to the promised mpg in the real world (pretty close, anyway), or too early to say?
Worst Fill MPG: 18.5 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 33.4 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 25.7 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 27 Combined (24 City/33 Highway)
Best Range: 418.2 miles
Current Odometer: 5,573 miles
Note: Cars are sometimes refueled before their fuel tanks are nearly empty. As such, "best" and "worst" fuel economy entries above are not necessarily the result of an entire tank's worth of driving.
