Hi, i picked my a3 sport back up from the dealers on sat, and was just wondering what the best fuel to fill it up with for economics and performance. and what sort of mpg should i expect to get from it as it seems pretty thirsty at the moment as i had a 1.6fsi golf before.

comments will be appreiciated

regards rob

Get a remap !

i should imagen from the 1.6 you will not be dissapointed from the performance i would drive it for a good month or two before modding (if thats the way your going) just to get a feel for it.

Super unleaded. 98 ron, try it for 2 / 3 fill ups, then try unleadedand see if you notice any difference,in performance and mpg

Mpg depends on how you drive. You should get 30ish and upto around 38 if you drive easy. A remap will revolutionize it mate. 250bhp approx

What colour is your motor?

I'll keep an eye for an A3 Sportback flexing the UK-AUDIS.NET sticker about the Bradford area, i know it's off topic but did you get your windows done? If so, who did you go with?
