[:D] That is right... Well TECHNICALLY it was 37 but close enough to 40... I almost shit myself when I did the math...

480 miles on 13 gallons... I'd like to see a 1.8 get THAT!!

wow, are you sure you didnt add like $20 but forgot you did?
cos ive done that, i was getting 450 on a tank and i was so happy, but then i remembered that i had added gas...
but then again, maybe you arent as stupid as me...
but yeah, V6 in freeway driving is great.
my camaro is at 2,000rpms at 70 mph
the 1.8t is at 3,000rrpms at 70 mph
so, yeah, good sh*t

Yeah, cause it was a 1 way trip, steady 80 mph no flooring it or nothing... Only made 2 stops for potty and drinks...

You must have been bored as hell in your car. I can do 400mpg on the freeway....but whats the fun if you can't touch 90mph once in a while? I would also get ther an hour late

Well my parents were in the car... Funny thing is... I do well above 90!! I even got caught... Like Saturday... Some ass was tail gating me... So I LIGHTLY tap the brakes... He goes swerving all over and gets pissed at me... So he rides closer... What do I do? I slam the brake and gas at the same time to do a nose dive but not slow myself down... Let go of the brake and take off, doing at least 135... Then as soon as I start to slow down, guess who I see under the bridge? That's right... Mr. Oklahoma State patrol with his radar gun pointing right between my eyes... So I just decide to pull over right then and there... Without making him come after me... Cause I knew what he wanted... Cool thing is... He wrote the ticket for 5 over... [:D] It's great having a military ID card...

i hope your dad punched you in the back of the head for contributing to road rage.

Ok, it started in a construction zone... 50 mph... Two lanes... I was in the right lane... Left lane clear... I was doing 50 in the construction zone like I should be... As soon as we got to the 60 zone he was still on my ass... That is when I lightly tapped the brake to let him know he was too close... Just enough for the brake lights to come on... So as soon as he gained ground again, he was riding my ass even more... How is it my fault that he was too retarded to go around me when it was clear? Trust me, when it comes to it, I am a defensive driver... But when you are riding my ass and there is no reason, I will let you know to back off... If you don't back off, I will leave you in the dust...

you slow down to 20mph to annoy him and potentially let him pass. there is nothing more annoying then driving 20mph in front of a tailgater. i love it!

the best way to do it is to flash your brake lights at him once or twice
then, if he doesnt stop, put on your emergency blinkers once or twice
if he doesnt stop then, just keep going the speed limit ( i know its tough ) and then when you can, just let the asshole pass...
its not as much fun as a 140mp run, however, it is probably safer for you.

Im jealous, I can't get over 27mpg driving steady state at 75mph. On a side note, I recently for 32.89mpg on my last trip with the 328Ci.

This is where the rear fog light mod shines. [up] Dual rear fogs looks like brake lights to the untrained eye. Tap on, tap off, he thinks your slowing down and not endangering yourself by actually slowing down.

dont let other people get to you. I drive a 1991 Nissan stanza w/ an exhaust leak right now till i get the audi. this thing is slow.

just let them pass. dont get a ticket bc of them

as my grandmother says when people wana pass her, "go kill ya selves" and move outta their way.

from what i understood, i think the crazy driving was on a different occasion...
i mean, it wouldnt even occur to me that anyone would do 135 with their parents in the car.

37 MPG at 80 MPH. Keep smokin' the dope.

I have seen 37 MPG in my 1.8t at 65MPH as my best ever.

There's no way in hell you got 37 at 80! And certainly not with a ton of weight (extra bodies in the car).

This has got to be the most rediculous post evar.[:p]

no shit!!!!??? if you have a quattro that is mechanical, i'd love to drive around with someone for a full week and check out their gas mileage, b/c anything over 27 amazes me...period. fkkk, i only got the best of 34mpg in my 2003 GTI 1.8T which is only fwd.

i have never seen more than 25mpg in my 1.8TQM and that was when it was dead stock, new plugs, air filter, Sunoco 94octane, and a fresh 0w-40 mobil 1 oil change w/ mobil 1 filter.

I don't read that thing at all... I use the correct method for calculating gas mileage...

1) Fill till pump stops... I always use the same pump at the station...

2) Reset the odometer after EVERY fill up...

3) Mileage/gallons=MPG

I drove 480 miles and filled up with 13 gallons...

480/13=36.9... And I just rounded up... So 37 MPG.

Yea, best for me at 75mph is 34 (2.8 30v)....they say after 55mph you lose millage so it is hard for me to beleave that you got that UNLESS you are for some reason running WAY too lean. 80mph is just far to fast to get millage like that. Keep dreaming and try to keep the speed down a bit ;-)

I don't know if my mods help at all, but i'd done mid 30's quite often on long distance trips... sitting around 65 to 75 is very good for the wallet.

Last time I drove home I got 33mpg, it is a 1.8t but its got 440cc injectors so they prolly have a higher flow capacity per minute combined then the 12v...needless to say i was happy.

Oh and too the kid who does 135 with your parents in the car... my dad would take me out back and beat the shit outta me. fvckin noob
