I know gas mileage is not the first thing in our list when we drive R8, but wanted to check with you all on what you are getting under various driving conditions.

I think the EPA estimate is 14 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for Gen-2.

here is what I get for my 2020 R8 Performance:

11.5 mpg, driving in dynamic mode
9 mpg, driving with manual shifting (more aggressive)

I have not driven my car in Comfort or Auto (especially because they don’t activate the pops and bangs from the sport exhaust). And also most of my driving is city.

what do you get?

I haven’t done the MGP math on my R8 but I’m going to guess that it’s in the single digits.😆 I drive it in AUTO mode until the engine oil temp reaches above 160 and it goes into DYNMIC then flogged with, of course, love!

11 MPG average usually maybe 12 MPG. I've done single digit runs. Sebring it was one gallon per lap so that's what...3 MPG? 🤣

Never got more than 16mpg in highway driving.

When I drive super defensive in the city (basicly like a 75 years old gradma) I get 13mpg.

Am I the only one who is blown away by how good the mileage is? I'm not basing it on advertised numbers just to my previous cars which were either supercharged V8s or turbocharged I6s. I DD in a big city and the 5.2V10 gets better mileage than almost any of my previous cars.

I drive in Individual mostly and have a heavy foot too.

Real world UK MPG figures :p
The car is base model so 7th is lovely and relaxed, think 75-80mph at 2k revs.

10k miles long term average 19.1mpg
75mph on cruise control gets 24mpg
blat over the mountains get single digits
best ever 75mile journey averaged 29mpg
But I don't really care, only keep a regular check to spot any issues.

I try not to pay attention to gas mileage. Same with all my prior toy cars.
