I seem to be getting terrible fuel mileage with my 325e.

I'm getting aprox 12.5l/ 100 KM with highway/city driving combined.

I heard somewhere that the 325e is supposed to get 7L/100KM.

What do you guys get?

With hard driving and mostly city I get 11.5 in my 325is. You better get your car checked out and/or adjust your driving style.

I've actually been driving really easy, I just changed the 02 sensor as well.. It just passed e-missions.

What else would give me bad mileage?

Maybe you r leaking fuel, check the fuel tank ore pipes.

Nah, I've always averaged under 12. Right now is actually the wors time of year for my averages. In the summer I frequently see low-10's.

no...you need to fill up all the way. Reset your odometer...drive however much you want...fill up all the way, and check your odo before you reset....then divide the number of liters by the number of 100 kms....

example...
if you go 423 km, and fill up 37.5 liters...then 37.5L/4.23 100km=8.87 L/100km...

what can i do to get better mileage, or is mine just what it should be for a 325... i dont really drive it hard, maybe a treatment of fuel injector cleaner?
