I do think that the standing water on the M40 wouldn't have helped much even though I only sat at 73 mph most of the way.

Any thoughts on the water and resistance...?
The engine would have been working harder having to push the car through the standing water which causes the resistance ,resulting in the engine using more fuel.

Tell me,and yes this is a serious question,did you buy the 335D for it's performance,and are now surprised by it's efficiency,or was it for some other reason?

Did you have the car mapped for the performance gains,or was it for the added fuel efficiency?

Lastly,being based in Hants,did you go to DMS for the remap?

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
