2015 Audi A3: Fuel Economy Update for July - Good Gains Over 5,000 Miles

August 17, 2015

2015 Audi A3

It's been a while since the last fuel economy update on our 2015 Audi A3. Since that post in June (for the month of May) we've added almost 5,000 miles to the A3's odometer. Multiple road trips to Idaho and Northern California helped pile on the miles.

As a result, the A3 has increased its lifetime mpg and improved its best fill.

Lifetime mpg increased from 25.4 at the end of May to 26.2 at the end of July. Also, one of our videographers took the Audi to Monterey in July and upped its best fill from 33.4 mpg to 35.1 mpg. Both are impressive gains.

Even with an abundance of highway miles, our lifetime mpg remains below the EPA's 27 mpg combined estimate. A quick survey of the room as of this writing shows that no one here cares. A few mpg is a worthy trade for such a fantastic car.

Worst Fill MPG: 17.8  
Best Fill MPG: 35.1
Average Lifetime MPG: 26.2
EPA MPG Rating: 27 Combined (24 City/33 Highway)  
Best Range: 418.2
Current Odometer: 16,129
