[BiturboS4] Fuel economy (was mostly ranting)

My computer reads 22-24 mpg with a mix of about 30% freeway, 50% major
flowing roads, and 20% stop and go rush hour type traffic with poorly timed
lights.  The actual computed mileage is about 20-22 mpg.  The computer seems
to be about 2 mpg optomistic.

Now if only Michigan could get some decent roads.  I don't know how long my
S4 is going to hold together with the beating it gets on these potholed
roads.  I found an extended warranty for 6 years/100,000 miles for $2,288
with a $50 deductible per visit.  Since my warranty is going to expire in 500
miles and I've got a '99 build 2000 S4 with the original turbos, it might be
a good thing to have an extended warranty.

 My computer always reports 20.8 mpg average.  Is this number just
 programmed in there?  It never changes.  I haven't bothered to check it
 "manually".  Gas is so artificially cheap here in the US that we really
 don't even need to care - and most of us don't. >>
