I just got back from a 1993 (s)mile road trip to the Rockies in my Scat Pack 392 with the A8.........25.4 mpg for the entire trip.
This was with "Sport Mode" engaged full time, so MDS was not "activated". Probably would have got 1 to 1.5 mpg better with it, but I don't like the MDS sound when activated, or the slight vibrations of the 4 cylinder mode.
I averaged 27 mpg on my trip this weekend. That was driving up mountains and back down doing 75 most of the way. Pretty amazed at the mileage I am getting with only 1000 miles on the car. That was not in Eco mode either and I have an A8.

Hello from a newbie member from a very wet and cold UK! I've owned my 2008 SRT8 now for 6 years - they were never officially sold here, so all that are were shipped over either as personal imports or by specialist importers. They are pretty rare here. I discovered the well-known issue about rear...
