I think my very first tank was the 100 and got great economy out of it, but then again I was babying the beast for the first 1,000 kms
I might have another crack at the 100. I've been reading a bit and I don't think it's bad for the beast.

Re: Car Ordered

Car back at dealership after 1100km on a tow truck. Engine shut off twice now, the last time on a freeway which is not the safest thing. Went into limp mode, hopefully sorted soon

Got rid of my Audi Q5 to get the SRT as there were a few gemlims after 60000km, didnt expect 1100km and something as major as engine shutdown on a freeway. Fingers crossed once fixed nothing else goes wrong

So far they don't know what is wrong. Apparently they had 2 pages of codes but nothing coming up now. Probably end up that the mechanics will end up doing more km than I have done. I am going away for 3.5 weeks from tomorrow. If not fixed by the time I come back will be asking for a new car

So no error codes and it's still in limp mode? Bizarre. I think you'll be fine. Enjoy your leave and as hard as it will be, try not to think about it. They'll sort it out.

Cheers, not too stressed but a little disappointed. I'm sure they will sort it. It mustn't be in limp mode or they reset it but is odd that nothing is showing up. Modern cars are good when they work

Sounds like it was just the battery, apparently couldn't hold enough charge and why I had trouble restarting. I am surprised with all the sensors it can't tell whether the battery is stuffed before shutting the engine down, obviously not a safe situation. Fingers crossed

At least it won't start now and makes a bad sound when you try. Got something to work with now
