If you were losing fuel my guess is that you would be able to smell/see it at that rate. Warranty?
I ran out of warranty less than a month, but before it ran out I took the car in for one last service, and the fuel consumption was on of the problem I listed on that's long list I gave them. But when I got the car back looking at the paper work , it says the engine was running fine, there's no code stored in the DME whatsoever according to the BMW tech. And as for fuel grade I only use 93 from BP or shell
