That is very good for urban driving! Do you use stop start?

I am on my first tankful of 98RON V-Power petrol I filled up myself after the initial 95RON tankful, which came with the car. Now I know the fuel gauge is not a truly accurate guide, but at 3/4 full, I had covered 270kms. I was VERY impressed. I am at 370kms and still well above half a tankful.

This has been only inner SE Melbourne Metro driving. Not even a trip on the M1. I get that on Tuesday!! Just local tram & non tram streets with heavy morning/afternoon traffic and lots of traffic lights.

I generally use Comfort mode to start off with and if I see a good run, I will switch to EcoPro mode to glide along. It really offers very low (engine & chassis) braking resistance. For those of you not familiar with Melbourne's geography, it is mostly flat. In heavy, slow moving peak traffic, On occasion, I cannot see any reason to shift out of EcoPro mode, even when moving off from the lights as the traffic doesn't move fast enough anyway and EP keeps up.

I have ASS active at all times and enjoy it. It certainly helps, no question.

All this with just 1,500kms on the 'clock'.

My E90 used to cover a little over 400kms a tankful of 98RON V-Power along the same routes. Same sized 60 (or so) litre tanks.

Just to be sure, your ride is the 328i?

So have you been on single lane freeways yet? Done any overtaking?

Man i have to live through you guys until i take delivery of my car.

Next time don't use your ass and do a tank. Let's see how much of a difference your ass makes.

Seems about right, Seph.

I tend to use EcoPro/ASS in the mornings and evenings for the commute if it's not too hot. I tend to pick up an additional 15km or so of range each tank, more if there's highway driving involved.

Yeah, that's interesting. ASS is worth quite a bit then. Not sure I could live with it on all the time though.

Melbourne Metro driving. Around 50kms of it of M1 (Monash freeway) @ up to 100km/h. Also includes 45 mins stuck in heavy peak hr traffic between Crown Casino and Brunswick St Fitzroy. ASS always active. I do not have a problem with it.

95% of the time, mine switches off at the lights and when stopped in traffic. When ASS is deactivated by the car, it idles smoothly.
