I have been wondering about this subject and no one has posted anything in a month and a half. Since it has been a while and I'm pretty sure some people have gone beyond their break-in period,
How is it?

I log my mpg with fuelly.

It's a diesel, so not necessarily useful for the yanks.

Thanks for the responses so far.

I'm not so interested in city or overall gas mileage. They are too dependent on ambient temperatures, driving style and the terrain in which you live. And generally depressing. Both of my cars probably get mid to upper teens around town but they get 30 to 35 on interstates. I prefer to track and remember the 30+ numbers.
Iím interested in true interstate cruising type of gas mileage. The kind of gas mileage that you get when your 2.0L TFSI is fully warmed-up and barreling along at 80ish MPH using cruise control. The type of mileage that you look at and say, Wow Iím getting...
I drive between Philly and Atlanta a few times a year, avoiding DC but mostly using Interstates. Of the Interstates that I use, I85 comes closest to being the best example for good gas mileage. Especially the section between Charlotte and Atlanta where it is relatively flat and free of big city traffic. If anyone (wink, wink) has any experience driving on a road such as this, what kind of mileage do you get?

Well, Bob - since I live in about exactly the middle of the corridor you're curious about, I COULD be one of your best candidates for some metrics. Truth is though, I don't hit I-85 to Charlotte much, and my treks to Atlanta favor the S5 or TT.

That being said, I agree 100% about your interests in 'real world' mileage. I can add that my S5 typically gets about 12-14 mpg around my semi-daily local jaunts, but at a 78 mph average down I-85 to Atlanta (Road Atlanta actually a bit north of the city), can reach 27 mpg - not bad for a big coupe with 600+ hp, 0-60 3.2 sec, and 11.5 qtr.

As for the Q3, I just don't yet have enough mileage (<1000 miles) on it to sort out any real useful data, but when I do, I'll be sure to post...
