On a long m-way run it'll return a shade over 50mpg at a steady 70-(ahem) which is pretty impressive. The scary bit is Sport Mode loony-style where it'll drop to around 32mpg.

Incidentally, these figures are all with the aircon mostly 'ON' if that makes a difference.

+1 very good for the petrol, so probably the 330d would not payback.
