What type of MPGs are you guys seeing

I Know it's winter, and that will screw with your normal numbers, but what type of MPGs are you guys normally seeing? I live in Tampa, and according to my readout, I'm averaging around 28/29 MPG with a mix of hwy and city.

I was in that range when I turned on my JB4. It seems that the way JB4 logic works is that it will cause the DME to pull timing (because that's how it regulates the amount of boost your engine can handle) and give you worse MPG while cruising. I lost like 3-4mpgs just on that. Now that I have turned it off and reset the adaptations, I am seeing higher MPGs on the instant mpg counter. Before I would be seeing 30 on average, now I see 34 on the hwy which eventually will average out to 32mpgs, like it should.

With my 21 mile commute each way from Brooklyn to Englewood I get about 250 miles before qtr tank fill up. Which is sometimes 50/50 highway/city and sometimes 100% parking lot :/

25mpg has been my average. It seems as though my car prefers the cold!

I drive semi aggressively and do probably 100% city. I get around 17.8mpg or 13.2L/100km =/ which is not good.

335i: 23.5mpg over the last 500miles on 91 oct. Had to lay back on the e85 as clutch was starting to slip under the higher boost.
