Getting between 44 - 47mpg out of a 320d E92 manual ED mainly around town and with short runs with the ever so slightly irritating Stop/Start thing active.

Longer Motorway runs at 70mph are seeing averages of 55-58mpg

Dorset to the NEC, onto Lincoln and back home to Dorset, 46.9mpg, and went up to 49.5 on the roadworks on the A46. First time I have reset the average speed and fuel consumption in 9000 miles, It was showing 40.9mpg over town and b road driving before I reset it.

E90 - 320d - 2007 - Manual - 43.1 mpg

Can't quite fathom why i am not getting higher than this as vast majority of mileage is on motorway and dual carriageway.

E90 330i m sport - 2006 - 25mpg over 5k mostly short runs 40mph driving.

It will push low 30s on a run, but driving frugally in it really pees me off ! it loves the revs !

Just to get my fuelly sig in the thread - 2007 330d auto - first couple of tanks were 37ish mpg, then it went into the dealer to have its wiper sorted out with the OBC showing 37mpg, and came out showing 32...

I think they must have left it running with the aircon going full whack for an hour while they looked at it... Twunts.

Hopefully back up to something a bit more sensible when I next fill up

Edit: This is a mostly a 20 mile trip each way to work, 5 miles across town then 15 on an empty motorway at 70mph. Maybe once a week to the shops.

Had a 2008 E91 318i ED for a few weeks now. Getting:

43mpg average.

Mix of town and country (A/B roads) driving (30% town 70% country).

Got 47mpg today on a pure country run with a quick trip into town.

Pretty good for 2.0L petrol estate car really....

Had my 325d nearly a fortnight now. 800 miles or so on it and averaging 48.7........have seen it up at 49.5 for a while. Mixture of town and motorway driving and admittedly running-in mode but impressive for a 3 litre.

Your doing it right!

My average over 15 months and 22k miles (6.5k spent on petrol ) is exactly 20mpg. OBC reads, on average, 1.3mpg over actual.
