Welcome aboard&33 Looks nice - what colour is that Amazingly a few members on here coming from the 2.0 TDI to the SQ5 have reported it gets better mpg&33 As you say the DIS is a bit cautious - but I guess audi rather that than people running out of fuel and charging them to have the system primed again (its a pain in the ass if you run out of fuel in a diesel). Couple of threads on the topic here httpwww.myaudiq5....to-next-refill
have been pointless. From reading around think the SQ5 owners seem to be getting average of around 30mpg and thats too low for a daily commute for me. 40mpg is already pushing it haha. Daily driver wise I had an A1 (60mpg) then an A4 (55mpg) now Q5 (40mpg) so obviously taking a 50% hit on what I was paying in the A1. Yes the fuel computers are normally user configured (They have in the last 5 audis
Mitchy on 15 October 2013 - 1058 AM said Hello I commute 155m a day to and from work 4 days a week so I opted for the 177 model in the hope to get close to that 47mpg figure audi claim. Anyway as I always do with my very first tank top it up overinflate the tyres to 40psi (F) 38psi &174 and drive very carefully to see what the tank range is and how close I can get to the manufacturers figures. Was
600 on a tank is very good (I hate filling up). Do you really have to pay to get the system primed if you run out of diesel I carry a spare can of fuel but if this is the case it would appear to be pointless. Has anyone actual run out and had to get the system primed I would be interested in what the best consumption members have achieved and also the best range on one tank&33 Are manual transmissions more economical then s tronic still these days
Hi Davo The first trip in my car was driven by the broker from Hull to me in Kent so over 200 miles and the average mpg on this first tank full was 38mpg (you can imagine I was interested like you to see how it performed and Ive also never owned a 4x4 before). I knew the mpg was supposed to be improved on the facelift Q5 and I believe its advertised combined at 47.1mpg. I was fully aware I was unlikely
How fast are you driving on the motorway. At 80-90mph i get about 35mpg. I can get about 48mpg on a decent cruise if car is warm and I keep it around 55mph which is about a 40% improvement. To be honest this is a bit worse than my Lexus ct200h which will do 65mpg at 55mph but only 42mpg at 80-90mph but I would put that down to the barn door aerodynamics of the Q5. Ms new cars will only achieve the
Thanks for all the replies. My Q5 is a 2013 facelift model and Im now on the second tank full - which does appear to be getting a better mpg. Ive done 185 miles and used about a 13 of a tank - I think about 160 of the miles were motorway ones. Ive just figured out how to use read the trip computer and on this mornings 7 mile commute I was did 27mpg according to the DIS so it looks like Im getting

My Australian Q5 is only about 600 km old. On the first fill up the fuel gauge stuck at full. Range is stuck at 870 km and won&39t budge. All the other computer readouts work fine incl. mpg. Luckily I know what range to expect 870 km per tankfull so I just fill it up when it gets close on the trip meter. I wouldn&39t expect audi to have any spare parts so I will probably have to wait 3 weeks for it to be fixed. Let&39s hope this car is not a friday pm lemon.
I did my first reasonably long drive today from Scotland down to Wilmslow about 220 miles and averaged 35.3 mpg in my 3.0l tdi with 1200 miles on the clock. The engine is freeing up nicely and is great for cruising down the motorway at just a little above the limit. I am pleased with that figure although i need to confirm this with a brim to brim fill up. I am getting just under 500 miles from a tank
Hello 2.0tdi 170 Stronic I am a bit disappointed with my wife™s Q5 to be honest in both power and economy. Its done 1800 miles now and is getting 27 mpg which is about 380 miles from a tank which is around 90. Computer says 29mpg 27 from full to full calculation. 90% town driving and fairly light foot. I also don™t think its that quick either her last car was an E92 320d Msport auto with 177bhp and

Is it a light and message saying &39refuel now old chap&39 or is it a &39refuel now your going to

When I fill it it says between 520-540 every time in reality I an getting bang on 450 every time so it is a bit optimistic. I suspect it is because I drive economically most of the time but the inevitable fun moments 2-3 times per tank knock 100 miles off the best possible range. I reckon if I could stomach it and was doing a lot of motorway (at legal or below speeds) 600 miles would be a realistic possibility. Ransman - is that actual mileage you get or predicted by DIS at full tank Pretty impressive either way&33 (I realise we are comparing SQ5 and Q5 2.0 TDI in this thread BTW&33)
on the first tank to 35.3mpg after 5600 miles. Last six fill-ups average is 38.4mpg but that did include some longer trips on two weeks holiday. All these are true figures and not from the OBC. Its still way short of the claimed figure but when you look at the overall cost of running a car it usually pales into insignificance compared to depreciation and we all know how good that is on the Q5.
Aaran on 23 September 2010 - 0225 PM said I have done 20K miles in my Q5 2.0 TDI (170) S-line Auto. I comfortably get 35 mpg based on fill up to fill up. This is is mixed driving 50% local 50% motorway. There are some claims of much higher mpg in excess of 42. Although im not sure if this is based on computer readings. Just did the calculation and I am getting 39 mpg tank to tank and showing an average of 36 mpg from new on the DIS. Hoggy
