Awesome Hot Wheels Review: Audi A8 TDI: Range For Days… Literally



The Audi A8 TDI is a fantastic road car with loads of features, oodles of luxury, and a brilliant diesel engine that’s well suited to the genre. And, thanks to a large fuel tank, it has tons of range. We test the range by visiting some of the world’s largest roadside objects and find out how many we can see on one tank before we run dry.

  1. I really think that Americans should rely more on diesel cars, they're very fuel efficient and reliable. Also, they are beginning to have great performance, even the same as their petrol equivalent cc. Some say there is a problem with diesel engines, that they create more nitrogen oxides, which affect the air quality and here in Europe they're beginning to ban diesel cars in some important capitals, but I really think that this is bullshit. I would love to drive an A8 like this on the endless American highways…

  2. 36mpg highway rating at 23.8 gallons, the 2014 A8 TDI's range based on EPA numbers comes down to 857 miles. The 2014 accord hybrid on the other hand with its 45mpg EPA highway rating and 15.8 gallon tank gets you 711 miles, but you only need 3 more gallons in the accord hybrid to match the Audi's EPA highway range, albeit with maybe less features and no spare tire.
    Half of the idea that "diesels get long range" simply comes from diesel cars having larger fuel tanks, and with modern hybrid technology this advantage has really been eroded… not to mention dieselgate

  3. 251 miles on 6.3 gallons. 2014 q5 3.0 tdi. That is 40 mpg. Tank size 19.8 gallons. If I take it to the end(just quoted tank size), that's 800 miles. If I bled the tank dry would probably be 850 miles. Point I'm getting at is trip showed 38.5, I actually got 40 mpg. Shouldn't be possible from a 6 cylinder SUV. Got to love it! If my tank was the size of the A8, then I would be pushing the 1000 miles mark! Got to love audi!

  4. Love this trip; because somehow in the midst of 2000s millions of Americans are brainwashed into thinking large SUVs are the ultimate roadtrip vehicles. Super luxo-cruisers like this A8 begs to differ, and with better efficiency as well.

  5. my 1999 Passat did 800 miles on one tank 14,5 gallons,
    on autobahn with 80mph-100mph and city and little overland. and i never run out, so there is even more then that 800 in there.

  6. Funny to see that you americans finally discovered what diesel is. And just one thing about you praising the "fuel efficiency": In europe, we have just normal cars that consume 50% less fuel than this one and less than a quarter of the american bestseller the Ford F-150 (which is still an amazing truck) but I guess you guys don't care about such things as environment and just put a 3.0 V6 in every normal sedan.
