You should see more than 450 miles to a tank in your 335d - 500 if you drive carefully ;-)

In this bad weather I'm averaging 36.2mpg, over a mixture of different journey types. This will probably come down a bit in the better weather - I'm hoping to have more opportunities to unleash the 286bhp and 580Nm (427 lb-ft) of torque... just can't use that kind of power in the wet or on frosty roads we've got lately. In the few small sunny spells we've had, overtaking has been fun ;-)
