You would probably be getting around 28 in a 320d.

I know which I would rather be in.

My pre-LCI E91 330i M sport is averaging around 26/27, but then everywhere from my house is up or down a hill so that causes issues. I suspect if i lived on the flat again (like i used to) i'd be averaging more like 28/29.

As already said, if you're doing short journeys and/or town driving you're not going to get great figures, and diesels are actually thirstier than petrols until they warm up so that won't help either.
23 in your petrol six or 20% more in a diesel four banger? Is it even a choice?
Make sure you take it past 6500rpm next time you leave town

I use to get 26/27 out of my manual 130i, so i suppose 23 aint to bad out of my 330i auto!

Had my E93 325 auto for a few months now. My economy seems to vary between 400 miles to a tank and 180 miles to a tank depending on driving conditions. 180 miles to a tank is equivalent driving conditions to my E46 325Ci (manual) which gave me 220 miles to a tank...

-10 325dMt here, and the fueleconomy is so good that I have not bothered to calculate from l/100km's to mpg...

Mixed city and active driving around the city it would do about 7-7,5 liters pr 100 kms, but for longer trips, like Oslo-Northwest it would do 4,5-ish...

e92 325d

9 miles to and from work (usually start stop traffic) - ~30-38mpg

Longer runs I tend to get between 40 (spirited) and 45.

On a 110 mile trip yesterday I got 53.3mpg.

Averaging 26.4 over the last 650 miles.

335d e92 2009 Efficient Dynamics model.

Rush hour town driving : 27MPG
Mostly Start stop for 1 mile then slow moving traffic a further 2.

Non rush hour town driving: 35MPG avg
3 miles 30mph, stopping only for traffic lights and light traffic.


Motorway Drive boring: 70 mph: 48 mpg
40 miles motorway mostly flat with some uphill section. 5 miles of town driving.

Motorway driving, errr, others : 43mpg
Same as above but with, lets say a heavier foot on motorway.

All averaged not single trips.

335i e92 2007 pre LCI m sport

I just got back from a run from Bolton to St. Ives, approx 750 miles.

a steady 70/80 on the mway and the A30 both ways (and the occasional blast) gave me a 31.3 mpg

Im more than happy with that!

2010 335i N54
Only had it a week but..
If I can restrain myself and sit at a constant 70mph on the motorway using the cruise, I can get 37+
On normal bobbing about it gets down to about 25-27.
For the performance I think it's nothing short of amazing.

E90 318d ES

End of term report.
3 years, one owner.
75,000 miles.

Long term average COMBINED is 60.1 MPG
Worst was 32 (B road blasting)
Best was 78 (slipstreaming a truck for 120 miles)
Normal 68mph motorway runs of over 2 hours return >63 MPG

Fantastically cheap motoring, but dull as hell.

e92 335i n54, it does 35 mpg very easy on the motorway, thats averaging 80 mph and not being particularly careful, i have had it averaging 40 on a few particularly boring eco motorway runs.
Knocking about it soon drops under 30 but i still think its amazing all things considered.

Which E90 model / engine / transmission is that? Good numbers, I suspect a LCI 320d or similar

My bad, didn't see it...
