Just wondering next time you all put a full tank of gas in your car, can you reset your odometer and post the model of your car and how many miles or km's you get with a full tank? I don't know if it's just me or my car is guzzling a lot of gas.

my auto e36 was getting about 600+km's a tank
my 5spd e36 is getting about 400+km's a tank but I think it's because my PCV valve is bad.

Only Highway my 328i (E46) gives me close to 850Km. Mix of city and highway i'll manage anywhere from 600-700Km depending on how i'm driving.

When I drive really hard I barely get 400Km out of one tank.

That's probably because your fuel tank is leaking from scraping on the ground and hitting speed bumps all the time. :D
That's an awful figure to have for a 318. I'd have that looked at asap.

Mostly highway, 401 <-> DVP and I always drive after rush hour. If I drive through traffic which I tried I will get around ~450 give or take till the light comes up.
