one, I've never noticed driving style to really affect mpg with my Audis.
The 83 5kt *always* got 18 mpg (unless something was wrong) whether I took
it easy or made the turbo glow. Likewise my 82 coupe, a consistent 22-23 in
the winter no matter how I drive, and 25 in the summer - except -
two, last weekend I also got a solid extra 1.5 mpg. Most of the miles were
on a longish trip, but I wasn't exactly letting it coast (about 3000 rpm
most of the time, oil heated up to 150 deg C) and there were three in town
sections, plus a day or two of my usual mixed driving. So I'm still going
with the "weird air" theory for now!
Cool, dry, air, unusual for June in New England.
Or maybe some "better" gas got shipped to us by mistake?
