E90 330i owners chime in!

Okay I just wanted to see what you guys are getting in terms on miles to the tank and mpg. If you have mods please list them

E90 330i
63k
6mt
Full exhaust with RE IKON with secondary cat delete/resonator delete
80%city 20% highway

I get 23-24 mpg and about 380-400 on the full tank. I never let it go even close to empty.

I am not heavy on the gas but once a week I do beat on it for a little bit just to get her a little excited and love to hear it backfire ( which is not technically good but love it lol)

Many of my buddies have auto e90 328 or e92s N52 and they get around 16-18 mpg city. ALL AUTO

I have a 330i meaning more hp different intake manifold and tuned differently.
Does a 6MT really help that much and I know my exhaust does for sure.

e92 drivers tend to drive more aggressively idk if it is because its a coupe or what but i know i do that sometimes especially since i have the PE i love hearing it but i get 18-20 mpg 360-380

'06 330i here, 106k miles. My commute is about 65% highway 35% city, typically mpg per the on-dash compuer floats between 22-23 mpg. Also have Euro airbox and cyba scoops, which I believe helps, but no tunes or other mechanical mods. Car is an auto, but I drive in manual mode.

Spark plugs were changed at 75k miles and I do oil changes at 7.5k miles after running a bottle of techron through the gas tank.

It has more to do with driving style than anything else. E92s have shorter gears, so they are generally at a higher MPH in any given gear.

Seems to be like my car gets a lot more MPG than most. I drive mainly city and get the same gas mileage as you guys that are majority highway. On highway I cruise at 65-70mph and get 34-36mpg.

When I had a tune and my AFE intake I was actually getting 1 mpg more! I sold both items that car was just obnoxious loud with the intake.

My car's MPG got worse with my tune - I used to be 28ish around town and around 3x on the highway - I now average on 23ish in town and 30/31 Highway.

06 330xi. 62000 miles. 15.5-16 mpg. I drive all city to work during the week. It's a 3 miles commute through a neighborhood. I filled up yesterday when the gas light went on with 255 on the tank. Not sure what the problem is. I use 91 octane (they don't sell 93 in my city) from name brand stations.

I got 27 mpg all highway a month or so back from a Roadtrip so that is decent for going 80 the whole way I think.

Damn haha for the longest time seeing everyone on here with such better gas mileage than us, I convinced myself I had leaky injectors or something. But I guess it's just the nature of the beast!

Yea I think the mix of winter and me not having time to get her on the interstate to stretch out is killing the engine. I have a 5 minute morning commute. Which is great but the car goes from -10 degrees to on to off before it's even warm.

That is a recipe for water in the exhaust.

2006 330i mpg

61.5K miles - W/ AA Stage II tune

I typically average around 22-24 mpg with an 80%/20% highway to city driving ratio. Traffic can really rip on I-75 down here in Tampa, so I'm usually cruising between 75 and 90 mph everyday. Sometimes faster if I really want to get home

Additionally: It's an auto but I use sport/manual mode.
