I'm about a hundy to fill up my A4TQ and only get 450ish out of it... fairly lead footed though. Driving like a grandma (i.e. GF in the front seat) long distance I get about 550 though.

Still it's a heck of a lot of fun so I don't complain. Turning up to see a client in a nice wee euro wins points to. So many CEO's etc are car enthusiasts!

Well on the way back from auckland i managed to pull 380km off half a tank, filled up in turangi and still had half a tank pulling into home last night. probably something to do with nana driving, trying not to blow oil out of my broken dipstick tube GRRRR .

Oh well off to the stealership tommorrow to get a new one, anyone else broken one? Its just the little yellow plastic collar about 100mm long that the dipstick slots onto, it shattered as i was putting the dipstick back .

Yeah, I had to replace one on the Corrado: Nice and cheap - Kinda lulls you into a false sense of affordability...

yep. on my A4, had to be careful not to get little bits of broken plastic down the tube.

think it was like $15 or something.
