New Audi feature to help fleets save fuel

The new Fuel Prices service is being launched from this month as part of an enhanced version of the "Mobile Phone Preparation – High with Audi connect" option.

The system consults an online database to list the cheapest local filling stations in real time at the driver's destination or at a location of his or her choice. It even takes into account the type of fuel required. The driver can sort the overview list by price or by distance, and once a filling station has been selected one click is all that is required to set the selected filling station as a navigation destination.

The service is being introduced on the A3 family from this month and will be rolled out on most of the brand’s models in the future.

Other useful features will also be included in the enhanced Audi connect option, which must also be combined with the hard disk-based Satellite Navigation Plus. The two optional items are available in the A3 as part of the cost-effective Technology Pack High with Audi connect, costing £1,795.
