I'm getting 34.8 average out of my 335D, and thats kinda driving normally (i.e. mostly sensibly with the occasional squirt past someone). Have had 42 on a trip oop norf, and had 26 whilst driving like I stole it.

Is that about right?

I measured my 335d on every tank - best was 39.2mpg, worst was 25.0mpg

Average was 33.6mpg over about 100 fills and 40k miles!

Mine is doing exactly the same, in mixed driving. I've seen 40+ on the m/way run.

my new 320d ED is getting a delightful 53.3mpg at the moment!

Pleased to see that figure as I am driving it 'heartily' at the moment
and my old 123d coupe used to get 42.2mpg so what I have given up in performance I have gained in mpg!

3 months now with my 330d auto LCI ....

Low 35mpg around town ... high 54mpg when using the motorway.

I've done 2000 miles .... the car 8500 ... so hopefully will get better as it loosens up a bit

Not fair! 75% of my mileage is motorway or D/C, and even driving sensibly I can't get much over 35mpg... Should have gone for the 335d... Grrr

Had a 100 mile round trip y/day, 95% on fairly quiet m/way. Not in a hurry either way, so set cruise to 70mph and let it sort itself out.

Result - 48mpg. From a 3litre twin turbo diesel - chuffed.. A little bored, but chuffed!

Not a con, exactly; just an industry-wide standard test at known reference points.

I'm kinda glad they do this cause dosent it mean it will show low emissions as well
which means cheaper road tax

for the record my 325 averages 29.9 mpg that a good mixture of motorway runs, thrashing it about country lanes and slow town and city driving

'09 M3 (e93)  [5.00]
These are only rough figures mind

In the 50 days I've owned the M3 so far I've done 1076.9 miles and put in 309.93 litres of fuel at a total cost of 445.42

That works out to 15.77mpg and a cost of 41p per mile

Still loving it though, especially with the nice weather we've been having!

E93 335i DCT 'box LCI

Readings from OBC

28 mpg average everyday short & medium journeys no jams
34 mpg motorways free flowing
20 mpg being silly on a longish run (but not that silly as i am getting old)

So it can vary from 15 to 34 mpg depending on time, right foot road type and traffic

I am happy with this given the performance

Efficient Dynamics makes a difference - getting about 43mpg average in a broad mix of driving from my 2008 318i E91. Might be a different engine to yours. Official figure is 47mpg - had this once or twice driving very carefully and coasting where safe.

2010 318d tourer, 43.4mpg over 11k.
Best average over a tank was 57mpg, worst was 39.
Did manage 62.7mpg over a 200 mile run, but I died of boredom that day.

If I drive mines, 'boringly' as you say then I can hit low 60s so I'm happy enough.

I can live with 30L of fuel getting me 400 miles.

Im still getting 30 from my 335i. Ive measured it manually as well and the onboard is spot on.

Thats a mix of short trips and 60 to 80 on the mway.

335d e92

best ever was a trip to cambridge 53.3 mpg ( really tying for economy on that run)

worst is the school run in a morning when its minus 10 like last year which gives about 28 (using journey computer)

always mid to late 30's on average overall.

got 29.5 mpg towing 1500kg caravan to the lakes from Derby & 30mpg on the way back.

checked the computer with a brim to brim & it was reading under by 1mpg but if you factor in the miles covered on the trip meter is probably 2 or 3% optomistic than it kinda balances out.

once its rolling in 6th it's quite easy to keep the swingometer near the 50mpg on the motorway. more so at 70 than 55.

I do drive fairly lightly overall though & always anticipate islands etc & try to coast (foot off) up to junctions etc. rather than brake hard.


I would proably have an M3 but couldnt live with 20mpg. I just couldnt. That would be like paying 2.70 a litre to me
