What is your gas mileage?
 
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?

Mystikal 02-18-2004 09:37 PM

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.

My m20 and m50 burn about the same amount of gas. About 11 L/100km city, 9 L/100km hwy.

with my 325e im gettin 525 to 550km to a tank what ever that works out to per litre. or mpg. thats running on 91 octane fuel

im doing about 340 min/380 max per tank. Doesn't matter if it's 94 or 91 same results.

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.

I Dont know men, but i have never seen 10's on my car.

hmm i average around 13.1 with city/highway combined, almost never see it go below 10, even on highway... something must be wrong

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...

I get 9L/100km all around. Just highway, I've gotten as good as 6.5L/100km
