Audi A6 / S6 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
It is @ least 4 mpg better hwy & city
2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
With the FSI and V6, I regularly see 27 mpg in city. And arround 30-32 mpg highway (no A/C on, and cruising at 80 mph).
2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
21=22 mpg in cit/commute/highway driving -- pretty good for a large luxury car that weighs 4000+ pounds.
2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Despite the performance of the A6 3.2 it delivers great mpg for such a large car. It excels on the open road. With cruise it is possible to achieve a range of 650+ miles on a tankful.
2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
better then 28 mpg on highway due to transmission gearing
2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
It's hard to imagine such a powerful luxury car can get such great gas mileage. On a recent trip to Montreal I calculated my fuel economy to be somewhere in the 27mpg range....incredible!
2004 4dr Sedan 220-horsepower 3.0L V6
6-speed shiftable CVT FWD
Typically 22-24 in-town and 29-31 on the road. Excellent economy for car size and level of comfort.

2006 4dr Sedan 335-horsepower 4.2L V8

this is not a car to be used as a city daily driver -- the best mpg you will get in all city driving is 12mpg
2006 4dr Wagon 255-horsepower 3.1L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
Poor relative to power
2002 4dr Sedan turbocharged 250hp 2.7L V6

For a car that requires 91+ octane, it would be nice if it got better gas mileage in city driving (around 16-18 mpg). The mileage on the highway is much better (up to 26 mpg).
