Hi Guys, I am getting 12 miles per gallon gas mileage in city with some highway drive on my new RR sport V8.
I was under impression that it is more like 16 miles per gallon in city.
Can you guys share what kind of gas mileage you are getting on your V8 supercharged .

I filled in your Signature Field in your Personal Profile for you, of course I had to search your posts to find the info.

Ignorance is bliss for me so I don’t calculate it, but I know it’s not great. I can fill up in the morning, commute across town for 30 minutes each way with some errands, and the gas gauge has already moved a few ticks over. Doesn’t help with having a tune either or the way I drive.

I’m just glad the tank is so large.

Per the on board computer 9-12 in the city and 21-24 on highway. Been pretty consistent over last 3-4 years.

I've had my 2019 RRS ATB for 3 months now, with just over 5,000 miles on it. Initial mileage was pretty low, in the 16-17 mpg range (measured by miles driven vs. gallons to fill the tank), but has improved since then to 18-19 mpg. I have a 30 mile commute each way, 50/50 back roads and highway with no traffic on the highway portion, so I can drive 75 mph pretty consistently on the highway. The mpg counter in the car shows 20.0-20.5 mpg lately, but actual mpg is in the high 18 mpg range.

When my 2019 RRS ATB was new, I got around 16-17 mpg (as measured by mileage driven vs. gallons to fill up). I've driven it for 3 months and just over 5,000 miles, and it's improved to the 18-19 mpg range. I have a 30 mile commute each way, 50/50 back roads and highway, with no traffic. I drive about 75 mph on the highway. The mpg counter in the car shows between 20.0 and 20.5 mpg lately, so it's definitely optimistic. I'm satisfied with the mileage I'm getting - I was expecting it to be much worse than my previous Audi A8 4.0T, but it's been better than expected.

City I get around 12-14, highway I get about 18 (driving 80 or so). The dash is quite optimistic I find usually 1-2 mpg more estimated.

Man I really just dont get it, I have the v6 in both my rrs and the f pace and both only get around 13-14.5 mostly around town but if it is mixed highway and around town It is maxed at 15.5. I did however take it on an all highway no traffic run and got around 18 even thought the onboard said something like 24. I just cant figure out how the v8 is getting better milage than the v6. It not like I am driving heavy. and if it was just the one vehicle i would think something could be wrong but the f pace is lighter and had the same issue.

I got a 2019 RRS V8 SC that is tuned and get about 350-400kms per tank mostly city driving. Not sure how that translates to MPG. I also drive fast, punch it off the line a lot cause inside I am a giddy 6 year old having the time of his life with his new toy.

My whole belief is, if I cared about gas mileage I would have got the diesel. I don't, I want to drive fast, feel the acceleration and the price is, im at the pump every 3 or 4 days. So be it!

2017 RRS V8 ATB with ~30k miles:

City Displayed: 12-14mpg
City Actual: 10-12mpg

Hwy Displayed: 20-22mpg
Hwy Actual: 17.5-19mpg

I typically drive 5-10mph over the speed limit and will pass slower vehicles. I could get 1-2mpg better if I eased up a bit, but I didn’t buy the V8 SC to save on gas!
