You are in the Audi A3
What is this discussion about?

#25 of 26 A3 mileage

2006 A3 2.0T DSG 65,000miles
I watch how I drive when I can to get the best mileage - lately keeping tires at about 38lbs - I can usually get 34-36 on the highway staying in the speed limit. I am on the highway probably 60-70% of the time. My average mpg after the car's breakin has been about 29mpg. I use premium gas though I hate the extra cost. I got a loaner the other day, same car, same engine but it obviously didn't have premium in it, I was surprised how much difference it made.
#26 of 26 After 80,000 miles

I can now say the A3 gets the mileage advertised. things I wrote before about less than EPA mileage was probably due to my engine breaking in.
You get about 25 MPG overall, 21 city, 30 highway if you don't drive like an old geezer. This is from 82,000 miles of experience with DSG 2.0 T 2006 A3 in CA.
