MPG from full tank

Managed to get roughly 600 miles from a full tank out of my 325d touring it was mainly motorway with a quarter town driving and some light footed driving. Was wonding what is the norn from a 3 ltr E90/91 if anyone can let me know what there best is I'd appreciate it.
Thanks.

That's pretty good from what I've read on 335's is that mixed or motorway? I need to replace my main stat so hopefully I'll see an increase but to be honest I was fairly pleased to get 600.

Wow just seen how your car has been set up! Now I'm disappointed only getting 600, mine has a ecotune custom map but that's all. It's now 250bhp and 400lbs.
I need a 335d!

Ecotune are excellent with their maps. Did your car come with a dpf, and is that off?

To be honest 600 miles is the best i have got, so thats about 95% motorway cruising at 70mph. I know this as i have done quite a few long journeys in this car. If you're getting 600 on a normal run then i would say that's good, but no harm in comparing with other 325/330d drivers as well.

The power is really addictive, and has forced me look at upgrading the handling even further too.

I can't speak highly enough of ecotune I could have taken the easy option of going to Darren Woods but it was well worth travelling up to Stan and his guys it was a great experience plus I took my youngest lad who had a great time watching the process (he persuaded me to get the map). You're so right about the addiction to speed once you've had a taste, I'll get the dpf removed this summer when I take my lad camping up in Scotland.

Same here, i travelled from Northampton to Glasgow for my stage 3!

Just bear in mind with dpf removal you might have to find a friendly MOT place.

I took my 335d up to pmw a week ago. Did a control run there and back 66mph on an 80 mile trip. Did 47mpg up and 52mpg down. Filled the car and it gave a range of 725 hahaha I'll never see that again!

Wish I could get 400! I typically get about 320 from a tank in my 335i (but then i hardly ever use the motorway anymore.)

E92 330D. Best I had historically was 56MPG. 50MPG typical on my old commute (mostly motorway) (click my Fuelly below, and switch to UK mpg, top left)

This had dropped to below 47MPG recently, which I put down to the new route, but suspected there may be a problem. So I just removed EGR this weekend and got 58MPG on the way to work.

I think that works out at around 700mile a tank. But that's a guess as I can't fill it at the moment due to a leak when I brim the tank (which reminds me, I need to search about that...)

best I've seen on a run in my 2006 E91 335d is 41mpg and about 500 miles on a tank (not the same tank of fuel though)....

...but it's old and decreped (like me), needs a few things sorted (like me), glow plugs, red boost hose, gearbox oil change... to name just 3.... theres more :/

That's brilliant and what I'm hoping for myself when I get the main stat changed.
Thanks for the info.

i presume smoothounds engine is the later N57. You wont get those figures from an M57.

i've never got near 50, despite my commute being mostly motorway. I expect a decent motorway-only tank with minimal traffic might see high 40's, i'm usually down around 44.

So, removed EGR yesterday. Reset this MPG morning before a 50 mile round trip to work, and this is the result.

Mixed route: villages, back roads, a few miles of dual carriageway and a 10 minute wait in traffic. Important to note, this is doing my best to drive economically.
