Pleasantly surprised with my last MPG brim.

I know I'll probably be chastised for talking about MPG in my 335i, but what the hell, it's Christmas!

On my way upto Islay for the New Year and I monitored the last fuel up in Glasgow...

309.8 miles mostly all dual carriageway/motorway with the cruise set to 81mph = 32.3 MPG (my personal best in the i).

Not too bad to say its all up hill

The most I got was 35.7mpg following the flow of traffic with cruise control.

No mate still tails off above 10psi, hoping the AA kit sorts it out.
