48 mpg (UK) = 40 mpg (US) ... but then that's the 4.2 diesel and remapped. The manual says on the highway it should get 46.3 mpg (US 38.5 mpg).

I can't complain.

I hope the petrol lives up to the 32 mpg US

I have 2,200 miles - mostly city, nothing on the freeway longer than 15/20 mins - @80mph, etc. I am a poor candidate for any kind of mpg survey as I really enjoy 'S' mode around town. The new shifter is very comfortable and ergonomically right at rest with just a short/quick rearwards flick between S and D (no need for thumb lock). I am guessing my car will be in the test average of mid teens city/low 20s highway. I am getting my (relatively) cheap thrills now before 5$/gal in the next 18 months.

I get no more than 22 mpg with about 70% freeway drivng in the Los Angeles area. As you know the LA freeways are not that free of traffic....
I noticed that if I drive only in the city I get no more than 17-18.

Drove from Los Angeles to Palm Springs at average speed of 65 mph and got 30.0 mpg in my 2011 A8L. Not even broken in at 900 miles.

Smile economy

Simply ridiculous economy figures in my opinion, but hey, I'll take them every single day. 52.6 mpg is almost 44mpg (US), and I should easily get 700 miles out of a full tank of oil... oops, diesel.

Even my dealer is shocked.

I'm sure I can get it down to about 25mpg if I try really really hard.
