There may well have been discussion on the subject already but as a newcomer to forum I would like to ask for fuel consumption experiences on X1 2.8. Our car is year and a half old and has had since beginning quite enormous fuel consumption, 15,3 ltr/100km. BMW promises 10,2 ltr in city. Our drive is 95% city drive and we live in Montreal halfway Mont Royal in a hill. So a lot of up and down driving and of course endless amount of stop and go crossings. But still, 15,3 liters feels enormous to me. The dealer said that in the beginning the consumption is typically high but will come down after first 3000km. It hasn't, 8600km now on the mileage. Trying just a highway drive we got consumption down to 6,7 ltr/100km.
Anyone having similar experience? Is it normal for a small car like this to use fuel like a lorry
