That's rather good Joe, what speeds we're you doing? As I went up to Cumbria when I 1st got the GTA and got there using 3/4 of a tank over 300 miles doing 80/85 all the way there :)

Booo.....

Well every car is different. If I did 60 all the way it does get over 30MPG.. around 32-34 usually.

To be honest there is no badge of honour for getting the most fuel economy out of a GTA is there? :eek:

Oh if anyones interested it was the S4 B5 variant twin turbo 2.5.. I'm suspecting it was mapped too.
2.7 they are Joe. They map to around 320, but theres plenty around that are a helluva lot more than that (with the turbos changed, usually to the K04's off the B5 RS4). :thumbs:

Can't keep up with tuned forced induction in a Gta I suspect unless it's bored out or forced as well. A uk turbocharged Gta would be awesome.

I'm up for it dan, but will be the later half of next year when I'll have disposable income, I could do it sooner but not worth the grief I will get from the better half.
