Sport 80% of the time. Manual + Sport = pure driving enjoyment.

I try to use EcoPro 90% of the time to maximize my MPG... but I LOVE how it drives in Sport mode. Reminds me of my E92 :]

Good way of explaining it. I've now put about 23600km on my 2012 328i. I've been in the automotive industry for about 7 years and have had the opportunity to drive many different cars. The difference between the modes is fantastic..

For the first 1200 miles it was 90% comfort and 10% eco. But now it some 70% sport and the rest sport +, the down side is that i have to fill up my tank more often.

Driving around an over-populated city with mental traffic and terrible roads, ECO PRO/COMFORT is perfect, can't even think about driving in SPORTS!

Pardon the n00bness, but I quite actively monitor the consumption history and I've noticed that on a highway when you slam the accelerator and hit over 100Kmph, the mileage meter shoots up like crazy! I usually get about 9Kmpl within the city, but driving over 100Kmph, I notice these momentary spikes in the consumption history jump to 30Kmpl etc.

Just trying to understand the logic behind this?!! Shouldn't the consumption go lower or does this have something to do with engine speed and kinetics?

30km/L is better than 9km/L. You might want to switch to L/100km if you don't understand what is reported, the car might be setup for another regional preference than what is generally accepted in your area.
