This is an old discussion point from the previous A45 but an interesting one. I was getting around 29 mpg while running in and that has now dropped to a much more credible 17.8 mpg since completing my running in. Order has been restored and the A45s is just like my A45 was.

What is everyone else getting.

It's trying to keep hitting that intoxicating machine gun exhaust note at 6000 rpm which really drains the tank. I have turned all but the master sound off in dealer mode and I am pleased to say I still have it. If that is the natural sound amplified in to the cabin it's fabulous. AMG should give us a secret dealer menu switch which allows us to share it with the rest of world.

You have to turn the AMG Race sound to minus -30 db in all the places it comes up but the one I didn't have the courage to turn off was the "master sound" menu. I couldn't say without being at my car what each menu is called.

I had a +5 mpg during running in but normality has been restored in less than 100 miles since running in was completed. My economy miles are now zero as below.

If the C43 is 4-Matic, which am fairly sure it is, then that is the kind of mpg which the serious A45s driver will be getting. Has the A35 mpg improved over the last few miles. Probably too early to tell.

We had to take my wife's A3 1.5 150 ps car out today as mine has a nail in one of the tyres. I filled her car up in Sussex and it showed a range of 410 miles at the petrol station. We then did the drive home of around 70-75 miles and the range left when we got home had increased to 435 miles,with no downward movement in the fuel gauge.Well that still does not sway me about my choice to have an A45s.

So it is 51, are you sure it's not plus 5 with our filler nozzle being on the passenger side. Is that the same side with the other A-Class models. 80 would have been more like it as my E-Class had which was a lot more frugal than the A45s.

I have noticed my MPG is creeping up with the miles currently 28.2 with the UK A45s average at 23.4.

I think in Australia the larger fuel tank is in relation to more frugal A-Class versions, the same as the UK. The increased size to 51L comes in from the A250 4-matic file:///C:/Users/chas_/Downloads/a-class-hatchback-specifications.pdf

It certainly would be good to have a larger tank option. Such as 80L as I had on my E-Class. And I can't understand why MB dropped the size from 56L for the previous A45 when the A45s is no more frugal, at least the way most of us drive it.

Fuel included? That's going to mean single digit mpg. In race mode all the time only 🧐

Yes in Australia you get a lot of tax breaks even if you are paid under pay as you go (paye in the UK). There was a really big outcry after the Henry Review which was considering scrapping a lot of the breaks. Did a lot of media interviews during the trip that time. And the tax reforms proposed since never happened as there is even more skullduggery between your politicians getting rid of each other than there is here.

Mine is now up to 27.7 from the previous 27.4 with the average in the UK showing as 23 mpg. The 23 mpg must include all the MB A45s' at Brooklands which probably do a constant single digit mpg.

Must be a lot more @Irish boy type drivers out there than I thought.
