3.6 Premium with 3000 miles unfortunately getting 15 city and 19-20 highway. Anybody having handling problems? The initial ride was perfect. So far 3 trips back to dealer for alignments and balancing--not much better. Dealer says it is the "tendency of the vehicle". Hmmm. I thought $56k bought beter.

I have a 4.2 and about 2300 miles on it. I get 13-14 miles
on it. This is pretty poor since I drive a fair amount
on the freeways and I don't accelerate hard.
#9 of 16 MPG pretty much as expected.

11 K here on 3.6 Premium.
Barely low-teens in NYC, hardly ever touching 20 in 60 mph highway driving.
Not the best, but what did you expect?
Does anybody know how to properly read all those MPG's in the MMI? Some numbers are so ridiculously low or high that I have doubts about their reliablility. Above figures are based on good-old manual calcs.
#10 of 16 On Target MPG

14,000 Glorious Miles since August 2006
City : 14.2 MPG
Highway : 22.4 MPG
Very steady performance in both city & highway. Never shy to step on the gas from hard stop or while changing lanes to enjoy the smooth 4.2L engine / transmission (.. & leave the other clunkers in the dust) when I feel like it.

Got the car 2 weeks ago, still with temporary car plate. Hehe. Anyway, did a roadtrip over Labor weekend and car now has about 1200 miles. Over the 500-600 miles roadtrip, we are getting close to 22mpg. In mixed city and highway drive, consistantly getting close to 16-18 mpg. And yes, we have the 3.6 Premium and yes, I used the most expensive Octane gas.

Have had the suv now for a few days. Mixed city and some freeway driving. MPG acording to the MMI display is 15.3 mpg. That's using a very soft right foot and cruise as much as possible.
I don't think i'm going to get better than 16 - even that's wishful thinking. However, I do love the interior and the exterior is growing on me!

#15 of 16 3.6 L Quattro 21.6 MPG

My first almost all highway trip.
511.2 miles with 23.7 gal of fuel, i.e. 21.6 mpg, which was exactly what car computer also said. Driving was about half at 70 MPH and rest of it mostly 60 MPH with some slow town traffic.
2nd full tank 170 miles going 78 MPH and 70 miles at 60 MPH and another 15 miles at 50 MPH. Total 255 miles and car computer says 20.8 MPG, fuel gauge at half mark.

Replying to my own message.
Today road trip of 331.5 miles.
Filled up before trip. Drove on Interstate Highway almost all the way at 78 MPH speed on 70 MPH limit. I had 82 MPH in speed meter as my Q7 obviously has 5% meter error, i.e. speed is 5% less than speed meter shows.(I have verifies this with my GPS that has very nice speed reading. At 40 MPH my speed is 2 MPH less than meter reading, at 60 MPH it is 3 MPH off and at 80 MPH it is 4 MPH off.) Only about 12 miles of my trip was at 72 MPH on 65 MPH limit.
Car says 20.4 MPG. Fuel gauge says 3/8 left. This would be very close to 20.4 MPG just like car says if indeed 3/8 tank means 5/8 (16.25 gallons) was used of 26 gallon tank capacity.
