I usually have gotten about 10/L per 100km, mixed cycle, in my 1991 318i.

That's what I was thinking 500km/tank sounds much more reasonable.

depends on whether you're doing just city or city/hwy. also depends on which tank you have. 55ltr or 63ltr. also depends on whether you are driving in the ideal range for fuel efficiency. But I will note driving at 140-50km/hr as to 100-120 makes a difference. :-)

if it's running normal with no mods, anywhere between 9-12litres per 100k city/hwy.

I get about 350-400 a tank/55ltr sometimes 420 depending on ratio between city hwy.

if you have a M42 engine you should get easily 500k to a tank and even 6-700 hwy.

Yeah I get about 10-11L/100km city/country driving with a 2.8L stroker running a schrick 284 cam and street tuned by me, not a team of German engineers lol. I usually never have a full tank but I'd imagine I'd get around 500km. I guess I'll find out when I drive to NYC next week.

Definitely something wrong there... I get about 450 city and 550 highway, fill up is usually 47 litres. In milage terms it's roughly 27mpg or 8.5L/100km.

700 km's? Not likely with the 4.10:1 differential and reserve fuel in the tank.

Ill get just over 500km to 45L if it's mixed city/highway. I get over 600km if its 80% highway with my M42.
