How much mileage are you guys getting?

As title suggests, I wanna know how much you guys are getting a single tank of gas

I have a n52 and get about 350-400 km per tank.

I'm assuming those figures stated are mostly City Driving correct?
E93 N52 325i and I get 450km to 550km on a mix of City and Highway driving. Dependant on how much traffic I encounter.
On long road trips (i.e. plenty of highway driving) I've been able to get 650km-ish with just under a quarter of the tank to go.

Yup usually lasts me 2 weeks before filling up on another full tank.

Ď06 E90 325xi N52, on my normal driving which usually is a 40% city 60% highway mix, I usually average around 20-21 MPG, usually end up getting very close to 300 miles a tank. On a road trip I did from Chicago to Arkansas, I was able to achieve 28 MPG while averaging 85-90 mph for a couple hours. On my way back, I filled up half way from Arkansas to Chicago which is 250 miles. By the time I got home I used only half a tank to get from halfway point to my house in Chicago. So theoretically the fact that these cars can achieve nearly 500+ miles in one tank on highway miles is truly amazing, especially for a car thatís nearly 12 years old. Inline 6ís FTW!!

Iím getting 21mpg on average. Most of my driving is done in city traffic though. So my 63l tank should be completely drained after 570km. I always fill it up after the first warning though.

On longer journeys I get close to 30mpg with overtaking and average speed at 60mph. Itís absolutely possible to drive at 35mpg, but that spoils everything that is fun about driving an in-line 6 BMW.

I don't really drive "city city" but more like an average of 4-5 miles between lights/stops. Then some highway cruising, and my 08 E91 gets 18.5mpg average.

N52 ... When I fill up (93 octane) ... my DTE readout typically shows 400 miles. I never really bother to check what I'm actually getting but figure it's in the ball park. My average is 25 mpg. I drive mostly city ... but our speed limits are fairly high for a city ... I'm typically doing 50 mph most of the time.

Yup, 400km was from city driving. a tiny bit of highway. I get 350 when I'm in the manual setting and I like to rev it up a bit

you guys have to talk in terms of MPG, not miles per tank. i'm getting 18-19MPG on a 328i 6mt with 80% city driving.

I drive an 80 mile commute that is a combination of excellent track-level rural back roads (15), rural dual lane highway (30), open interstate (15), and heavy bumper-to-bumper (20). I pretty much hammer the back roads. My average per-tank MPH is around 50 MPH. I average 27 MPG. The MPG number is calculated from actual recorded fuel fill up data for the past 11 years.

I averaged 550per tank when I highway commuted. Now Im more city and I see about 400-450 miles per tank. Ive always been impressed by how well the N52 was on fuel. After refueling off of a highway the computer would sometimes read 580 until empty but I always doubted that very much.

Autos get shitty fuel economy - thats probably most people's problem. AWD hurts too.

I consistently get 350 miles (560km) per tank - up to 500 miles if its all highway. Never got less than 23mpg.

My X5 gets like 270 miles on a 24 gallon tank, lol. But its 5400lbs and an automatic...

N52 auto

I average around 20 mpg. When i drive a lot on the freeway, I can average 25-30 mpg.

My range on a full tank is around 360 miles, 320 when I blast the AC.

I get the same mpg on the same engine. All the city miles are on cold engine and it never gets hot since my work commute is 3 miles.

One would think that SULEV engines would get high mpg to prevent pollution but probably all carbons are trapped in the cat system.
