Diesels and Imperial mileage which is an inflated number compared to the US standard.

Just moved from a 2011 e92 320d mSport manual to a 420d mSport sport auto. Had the e92 for 3 years and 39000 miles and when we parted company (sob ) the lifetime mpg was just over 54mpg. Only had the 4er for 6 weeks and so far on the 2000 miles on it mpg is at 52.5. I was hoping for a little better I suppose, but we'll see.

335i with MPPK/MPE and 8AT - 28 city, 36+ highway, and not using eco-pro mode. On a 1400-mile trip with 2 overnight stops, I averaged 34.7 mpg while driving 70-75 MPH average speed.

We managed 506 miles on a tank on our (gasoline) F31 Msport Sportwagon. Eco Pro and cruise control baby! That was with an hour of stopped traffic in Pennsylvania, too.

I pick up my F30 tomorrow morning so I'll be sure to put it to the test.

I turned off the mpg display because I was getting pissed off. Now I'm much happier. FYI I was getting around 18 mpg I think.

Damn thats nice!
I have the same setup and am currently getting 21.
Is there any truth to it getting better over time?

Granted, I work about 4 miles away and there are about 10 traffic lights which always seem to be red, so I always seem to be accelerating which doesnt help.

'13 335i xDrive:

34-38 mpg highway with cruise & eco-pro.

Exceeds EPA's expectations and mine.

After 5,000 miles in my 328.

60% highway, 40% city

I'm getting:
26mpg in mixed (comfort/sport)
27mpg in pure Comfort mode
29mpg in pure EcoPro (AS/S off)

I haven't used a full tank of gas in pure Sport mode yet.

My fuel consumption is getting worse. It now has 13k.

Although admittedly I have been driving it much harder.

328i, getting 580km full tank now whereas when new I was getting about 700km

9.5L/100km or 25mpg with 3000km on the car.

70% Highway 30% City

During initial acceleration, the L/100km gage pegs to the full right (max consumption).

In the end the car has the same economy as my dad's 2004 4 cyl engine. I just thought it would be closer to what BMW claims that it would be.

It does get somewhat better after several thousand miles, but the key difference here is that I don't have to commute to work every day (I work from home). If you have your iDrive screen set to display the "immediate" average miles per gallon, you can watch it tick downwards while you're idling at a light. For you, using ASS might help. The other thing is light throttle application - just drive smoothly and avoid WOT unless you absolutely need "full military power". Even when passing out on the highway, there's more than enough torque to get by someone quickly with just a light increase of throttle. I drive mostly in comfort mode, although I have noticed there's not a lot of difference in mileage around town in Sport mode - but on the highway, Sport won't go into 8th gear (2nd overdrive) unless you move the lever over to "manual" and shift it manually. Of course, if you're on a long trip on the highway, Sport really is superfluous (unless the highway has lots of curves!).

335i 8AT:

22.5 miles per gallon according to my car after about 10,500 miles. I have a 70/30 split of city vs highway miles. Most of the time the car is in Comfort mode, but I switch into EcoPro and use cruise control once I'm up to speed on the highway.

I never use A.S.S.

Just did a 700 mile drive, and another 700 to go. Car averaged 32.7 or 32.8 MPG. Drove in a combination of eco and comfort, with speeds ranging from 75-85. Car does have a BMS Tune, and I do like getting on it occasionally.

Happy with the numbers. I figure I could get 33.5 or 34 with a bit more granny driving and without the tune.
