Lousy gas mileage

The official specs for my 2010 328ix say I should be getting 17/26 mpg (city/hwy). I do mostly city driving and get about 15-16 mpg at best (running the AC). If I take it for a long trip with highway driving, I might be able to get 20-21 mpg. Is this normal? Should I take it in for service?

Sounds a lil off, yeah.

if you are doing all stop/go city driving.. 15 isn't that far off

But on the highway, cruising along, you should be around 29-30mpg (I get 30 as my hwy average)

What does your instant-read show when highway driving?

Have you checked your trip vs. gas in at time of fill-up? in the off chance it's a computer issue?

I think I enjoyed the car more when I didn't even pay attention to fuel economy. I guess I need to remind myself that there's a reason I didn't buy a Prius, and get used to spending a lot of time (and $) at the gas station.
