Hey guys, I just recently purchused my 1996 A4 and it gets terrible gas mileage. It is averaging below 20mpg even though I do a lot of highway driving. Before I got the car the dealership had replaced the timing belt. I was wondering if this could be the cause. Also any other ideas would be helpfull.

what engine? ... timing belt shouldnt have anything to do with miliage... i cant say i get much better in the allroad... my jetta averages about 29 on the highway... also, depends on what grade of gas your burning.

oh. and lay off the gas! :wink2:
well.. the higher the RPM the more gas... so when crusing keep the rpms as low as possible... i usually shift around 3000 when i'm driving if i want to conserve
