If you are worried about gas mileage for a 20 mile commute than probably this was too much car for you.
Not sure I even get the question as it does not make much sense.
A beater doesn't HAVE to be a piece of junk either ya know. You can get a cushy, comfortable, luxurious "Beater" and have your badass M car as a toy on the weekends. This saves gas and is more practical for keeping the M in a good condition.
My uncle has a gorgeous S class as his "beater" with an AMG CL as his toy. My dad has a Passat which he loves, and takes out his Jag on the weekends. A beater can be something nice too, and not a crap econobox that you feel forced to live with until the weekend rolls around.
