Most of my drives are shorter stuff around 20 miles so by the time the engine is warm I'm pretty much there. It is motorway for the main part and I use eco-pro when I'm just cruising along with the occasional burst of sport when needed. I have been using the super diesel which may not be doing anything performance wise but may just help a bit
625-650 sounds about the type of range I was achieving in the 318D, although the 318 doesn't encourage much spirited driving, but feels 320 like under 2,200rpm.

This is the first car where I can truely trust the range left. It is amazingly accurate. Most of my other cars predicted the range until around 50 miles then just resorted to a 'fill-up' graphic. I love the way the F30 bongs at 50/30/20 miles etc. Not gone lower yet.
