I was driving up the 400 hwy at 140 KPH in -24 degree weather and the temp
gauge was just below 80. Mind you the cold that was coming off the
windshield was harsh.

Hi all.

I've been following the posts about t-stats and mileage with interest. I get
lousy (LOUSY) mileage all the time, and last night while running on the
highway for 50 miles, in 30 degree F temp, at 85MPH, my temp gauge read just
to the right of the third mark (first mark being far left at 50 Celsius,
then two thick lines close by, then one more thick mark a little further
away, then 90 thick mark). In other words, only about halfway to the thick
90 degrees Celsius mark. That seems WAY low, yes?

Also, oil temp the whole time was very low (running 5W-30 Mobil 1) as well,
at around 85 Celsius by my guess, being just on the mark after the thick 60
Celsius starting mark.

Second, does anyone know if a S4 2.7TT 6-speed trans can be bolted up to a


93 S4, lousy mileage
