FWIW, the reality is a lot different though Pete.
I just did a 200 miler at a GPS 70mph, almost all motorway and loaded up and saw an indicated 62mpg.
On a refil it worked out pretty close on paper calculation too, in fact slightly better.

Smart little car this.

I think of it as 'offsetting'.

Against the 335i weapon of mass consumption.
