Comparison - my 1.6 TDI Passat can go ~75MPG at 60-65 MPH which is in the same range as your A8 figures.

For town driving weight is the killer - Kerb weight for the A8 on Wiki is 3,600lb or more, the Passat B7 is 3,300 ish - obviously specific weights are tricky as you've stripped stuff out and I'm on a diet, again...

I'm only adding this as a comparison though.
