on shell 91, on fuelly.com

highway = 385km @ 11.50L/100. Fill up was 44L so there was lots left

worst = 170km @ 24.50L/100 (all city in sport mode :D )

Average (200km of highway, rest city in sport mode) = 250-300ish at around 13L/100

Last highway tank - around 480-490 kms. Best ever was roughly 530 km IIRC.

Last city tank - around 350-380 kms. Not sure what my best is though.

The car has only seen Shell 91 and I drive in full dynamic settings 100% of the time.

When I had just finished the break in period, it was a LOT less because I was honking on it all the time. Got a lot of that out of my system now, and fuel economy has improved. Funny how that works.

I'm at 2000km now. Getting about 14-15L/100km. Usually need to fill up around 300km. Mostly city with mix of auto setting in rush hour, and individual ( dynamic engine and exhaust) when not in rush hour.

I drive 85% city. My S5 got 9.8 miles a gallon and my RS5 is closer to 9.

I can't tell if this is only for RS5s! The only people with sigs responding have been RS5s. Either way, I usually track my gas mileage on fuelly: http://www.fuelly.com/car/audi/s5/2012/noname/293337

Haven't filled up a bunch, but it seems to be like 14-16mpg in the city and 20-25 mpg on the highway.

I get at least 350km on a tank with my S5, and that's a mix of city and highway driving, but more city, start stop driving. My average is around 15L/100km, however when she's on the open road, fuel consumption comes down to 9-10L/100km.

I had an E92 M3, the same around 200 km between refills. The problem here, both M3 and RS5, is the small tank rather than the fuel consumption.

Have the car one year now, and on average use 12,9 liter / 100 km (mix of 30% city and 40% highway and 30% German Autobahn where I drive > 200 km/h often, when traffic allows of course).

Normally I reach 400-440 km per tank, and can then take about 55 liter of fuel (so about 7 liter left in the 62 liter tank).

(in comparison: drove a S5 V6T for three years, roughly the same mix of roads, that used 14,5 liter / 100 km, and almost always less then 400 km per tank (350-380) => especially the high speed Autobahn driving was much worse on fuel then in my current V8 !)

Good example to show that fuel economy is not black and white. It is not about what you drive, but how you drive. I've said this before that if one likes to drive fast and push the car they will get better fuel economy in the RS5 vs the S5, simply because the RS5's engine has to work less hard to achieve those speeds and accelerations. Top Gear did a funny episode once where they drove a Prius followed by an M3 around the track. They were going as fast as the Prius could and the result was that the M3 was more fuel efficient than the Prius. I remember this episode every time I see somebody driving a Prius on the highway as if it was a sports car.

what kind of speed are you doing to almost get 500?

105 km/hr. On cruise. Nothing crazy, not much variation (ie traffic) and not much in the way of elevation changes. Boring as hell to achieve that.

Did U previously own a Cabrio B 4 U got the RS5 Cabrio? I currently have a 2015 V6T Cabrio & seriously considering a 2013/2014 CPO RS5 Cabrio. Comparisons/similarities/Maintenance differences. Very few Cabs in S5 & even fewer in RS5, Any feedback would be helpful, Thanks from a fellow Cabriolet fanatic.

Did U previously own a Cabrio B 4 U got the RS5 Cabrio? I currently have a 2015 V6T Cabrio & seriously considering a 2013/2014 CPO RS5 Cabrio. Comparisons/similarities/Maintenance differences. Very few Cabs in S5 & even fewer in RS5, Any feedback would be helpful, Thanks from a fellow Cabriolet fanatic.

Yep, first I drove S5 cabrio with V6T, and now RS5 cabrio with N/A V8. Before the S5 cabrio, I drove a S4 cabrio (B7) also with N/A V8, and both V8s are better on fuel then the V6T (especially when driving it really where it is made for!).

Comparing the S5 cabrio with the RS5 cabrio: the difference is bigger than I thought in advance. I also drove an A5 cabrio 3.2 V6 for few months, and the difference between that car and the S5 is smaller (only less power) than between the S5 and RS5. The RS5 not only differs in engine with the S5/A5, but also in steering, suspension, brakes, stifness/rigidness of the chassis and transmission (different S-tronic). The RS5 also comes standard with the crown differential (which comes on newer S5 too I believe?). This all means it is a totally different drive, especailly when you drive it high in the revvs, and push the car a little bit. Of course the V8 sound adds another good emotion to it, which none of the aftermarket exhausts for the S5 V6T can match. The sound is unique when you revv it above 6500 rpm until 8250 rpm :)

Of course there are similarities as well: the interior, controls, etc are roughly the same, despite some small nice RS5 twists (black dash panel, RS gear lever, alu pedals, etc), but those can be modded to a S5 too when required. Of course the exterior is little different too, especially the wider back panels, larger exhaust pipes and the beautiful grille are noteworthy

About maintenance: the 30K km service is about the same as for a S5, but at 60K km , it starts to get expensive (complete oil change, also for S-tronic, sport diff, etc) but at 90K km it is "normal" again. Of course new brakes are expensive, but I am still using the orignal ones after 66K km. Tires are equeal to a S5, depending on the size of course. For the rest no worries, much less then with all the problems the V6T can give (overheated cats, see recall TSB, s-tronic slipping, etc, etc).

Hope you can get hold to a nice RS5 cabrio, since it will be one of the last N/A V8 engines in a "normal" car (only the R8 will keep using the Lambo N/A V10, which in fact is the same engine as the RS5 V8, but without 2 cylinders).

Enjoy!

Mine was the reverse. First was a 2007 S4 Cabrio w/ the 4.2 V8 but the wife wouldn't drive stick, so traded for the 2010 S5 Cabrio w/the DSG & 6VT. I've owned ALOT of Audis, all the way back to a 1981 Dk Grey Coupe GT w the 2.2L 5cyl, an 87 Coupe w/the digital dash & 2.3L 5cyl but went over the edge w/ the Cabrio's. (& ~ 8 other models from 1990 to now all 4 doors) But I just love the open air feeling/sound/sun etc. of a Cabrio. Regarding brakes being expensive, ~ 1500.00 or more? How frequently if NOT tracked, far too many do gooders itching to call 911 & report a car passing (legally) going by them really fast!! Yes this actually has happened more than 2 X. so most driving is relatively tame & in town. Take her on the interstate once in a while but same pblm w/ IL St. Police waiting to cite you soooooo... I've also had the "Mechatronic" unit replaced on my S5 under CPO that U referenced. I'm assuming the transmission in the RS5 is not the same as the S5? 60K km is ~ 36000 miles correct? Do U know what the cost (est is fine) of that service is? Do U have that many km's on yours? I think U R correct ~ the crown on 2013 S5 & newer. Giving small consideration to a CPO 14/S5 again but I really think I'm just going to bite the bullet & go for the RS5 Cab. Now I have to find on in the color combo I like. BTW, do U like your "Comfort seats" Did U have the sport seats in any of your other S5/S4's? Comparison? I've only had the sport seats so not comparison. Thanks for the feedback. I'll keep U posted if U R interested in my hunt/quest for an RS5. Thanks Again!!!

60K km service; about Euro 1200 (my car now has 66K km)

New brakes for RS5: don't know, since I still use the original ones (never brake, always use the engine in lower gear to brake!), other threads about this shows some pricing.

The sport seats look and sit very good too (had them in a S5 coupe), but.............I really drive open many times, and then the neck heating is really a must have, asnd can only be ordered with comfort seats.

Keep us posted!

I average between 350 and 400km per tank, 80% city, 50% dynamic mode.
On highway I am at 11l/100km and city at an average of 17l/100km.
I have about 50k km and my global average is 12l / 100km

2014 RS5 - 380km with 50/50 city/highway mix, 400km with 20/80 city/highway mix, max I've ever gotten was 430km going almost all highway.

At the track, 120-130km [>_<]

Closing in on the prey. Provided all goes well, a 2013 CPO w/9500+ miles will be mine. I'll let U know when it is mine. Hopefully by Thursday. A little sad to see the S5 Cab going cause I love the "Orca "colored interior, but boy oh boy what an upgrade for me. Anxious to say the least.

Got it!! New to me, a 2013 CPO Panther Black RS5 Cabriolet w/9522 miles. HOLY Sh**!! What a different car. I am about speechless regarding the difference in handling/ride/brakes. Until you experience it, very difficult to adequately translate in print form & do it justice. Slightly less torque until upper revs are achieved but once there (just as dozens of others have posted) the sound & feel are astonishing. I am in love w/a car all over again. Even if it is "only" as fast as a modified S5, just knowing how few RS5 Cab's are stateside, puts a huge smile on my face. I like the feeling of mild exclusivity that comes w/owing this Cab, even more so than the S5 Cab I traded. Looking to a long & rewarding relationship w/my new baby. +1 to all the Cabriolet owners on AZ, we are a little bit of a different breed.

@icu2 - congrats on your purchase! You now have my dream car haha. Glad I stumbled upon this post. I was going back and forth between the S and RS, wondering how big a difference it really is. I've always leaned towards the RS, but was getting tempted by being able to order an S5 to my specs. I think I'll stick with the RS... Cab, of course!

Glad the thread was of assistance to you. Kind of hijacked to thread a little bit. If you want to see a spectacular modified S5 cabriolet, look for srfrboy on Audizine He has a spectacular white S5 cabriolet heavily modified, unbelievably fast and so tastefully done. He lives in the greater Chicago metro area so you might be able to meet up with him before you make a decision about which vehicle to go with. P.m. me if you want more details, don't want to hijack the thread. Best of luck to you and your hunt/quest, this is always an exciting adventure.

I've had my 2010 S5 since late August. If I fill I think I get like 240 miles or so to a tank. I put a little Redline fuel system cleaner in it this week along with a oil change. I always run Shell or Exxon 93. I have been giving it the OLD Italian tuneup driving it high RPM in the city to get that carbon flowing "evil grin". Should be interesting to see what my miles are this tank. Is guess around 200 or less :)
