Yes, that could indeed account for part of the increase. I should have also said that my weekday commute is mostly highway and I am able to avoid peak traffic hours so sipping gas is typically not difficult. When I refueled today - my second week after the oil and filter change it confirmed what the trip computer was showing all of last week- average mpg is now a shade over 29. I am chalking this one up to the dealer screwing something up.

I've done numerous oil changes on the Q5 and as you can see, it is very easy. Just hit 70K miles.

I was wondering where you got the tube to go down into the dip stick tube to suck out the oil. I have a Q5 and it will be off the service plan soon so I will be changing the oil.

The tube comes with every "oil sucker". Thin tygon tubing or copper "icemaker" tubing is sold at every hardware store. Aquarium pump tubing from pet stores. Oxygen tank tubing (can't collapse under vacuum) from any pharmacy.

The world is full of tubing.

???? Take a look at photo #4. I use good old fashion gravity. No tube required. Remove the drain plug and all the oil drains out the bottom!

Thanks for the write up! I had planned to do this on my 2010 3.2L today, while it shares the same body I thought I would ask here. The 3 phillips/flat head screws at the rear of the belly pan are completely frozen and the heads are stripped. Because Audi has always sucked the oil out the top i believe they have never been removed.

I am thinking about drilling them out, but wanted to ask anyone who knows this hardware well if that is a good option. I know it mounts to the rear belly pan section and it looks like it also mounts to a cross member bar that is tied to the frame? If i drill out would it be easy to replace the hardware?

I have an oil leak so I really want to be doing my own oil changes so I can start to clean, observe, and trace down the culprit of the leak, as I know the dealer will not take the time and will just recommend endless service and gasket changes...
