That's pretty bad. I'm assuming that's a lot of city? I can get about 450 if I'm interstate only going between 70-85. And that's with few gallons left

Farthest I've ever gone between fills is 403mi, though of course that's not running the tank dry, that's "stop because there's gas here."

Much less. 128i gas tank is comically small.

420-450 all highway, I still average about 380-400 mixed though. The weight of this car really kills the city mileage..

O yea city is terrible for me. Some weeks I will have all city and I can knock out a tank in 275 miles if I'm a bit aggressive on the throttle. City/highway is night and day for me.

434 miles from upstate ny to va with about half a gallon left, interstate 80% city 20% averaging 80-85 mph. I get around 340-350 miles city/hwy combined on average. Drive always in sport manual mode and like to engine brake.

415-425 highway with 80-90 mph and 340-350 city miles if I drive normal. Aggressive driving is about 280-290 I guess. AT here..

480 between fill ups is my best. Highway range when highway driving and freshly filled up regularly crests 500 miles, but I don't weight until range shows zero to fill up.

Well I've only had my car for a week and I filled it up tonight at 344 miles of city driving. Though I will say I've been driving a bit aggressively all week. I'm about to make an 11 hour drive Friday from the Florida panhandle to the south Texas coast, so I'm interested to see what I can get then.

I am pretty sure something is wrong with my car... I average 15.1 MPG and fill up around every 6 days. But I do have a 40 mile commute daily
