I thought nobody would ever ask! Is it just me or does everybody reset the
trip when they fill up and then sweat over how far they can get? Do I run it
down to 0 miles to go and hope it doesn't run out of fuel before I can beat
500/600/700 or whatever? And do you love to watch the 'miles to go' seesaw
up and down depending on how you're driving?
Mine's a sport 130 avant and around town I can't quite wring 600 out of a
tank, but recently I got over 700 on a return trip to Devon (I live in
unfortunately my a4 is a 96 reg (n) and dont have the luxury of a trip to
tell me how many miles i have left in the tank.
i do however reset the odometer and run right down into the red to see how
far i can go, i do only do this now and again to try and better my previous
How geeky is this ? but i do like getting the best out of my car considering

It's an Audi's way of telling you something is wrong, but only for the less
serious stuff, like the previous poster say's you have 3 types although I
have only ever heard of 2.
Full DIS you get a little switch on the wiper stalk to control trip
computer, fuel used, remaining, av mpg etc, plus you get bulb out alert,
brake test, low washer fluid etc.
Partial DIS (what I have) Fuel remaining, Out Temp, Major warnings like low
water, oil etc, Speed Reading, and 2 hour break,
I had full DIS in my old 2.6 quattro, but my new 1.8T QS does not have it :(
