I've been driving a 120d the last couple of weeks.Sunday drive at 50-60mph managed a very good 60.1mpg.

130 miles at 75mph today returned 48mpg but when in town that slumps to 33mpg. Surprised to see a 335d match a 120d as usually the short journeys are the killers for economy with big engines.

Reading what other people post, there does not seem to be much between the 335i and 335d but I guess that will vary hugely to how and where you are driving.
