19.5mpg for 1+ hour trips, 14.5mpg for mixed driving, 9.5 for very spirited or autocross

And I can't wait until I get 6 mpg at Laguna Seca with $8.00/gallon 100 octane fuel!!!!!

+1

My observation exactly--each track session consumes a quarter of a tank, so for a typical track day format of four 20-25 minute sessions, you're empty at the end of the day after arriving with a full tank. You either have to carry a 5-gal container with you, or hope the facility has pumps open on their property.

I've had to hyper-mile the M3 on the highway occasionally when low on fuel and a significant distance from the next Shell station (or Sunoco if necessary), and it's painful. Short-shifting and running in 7th gear at relatively low speeds--definitely not the way this engine was designed to run.

But at least it's better than my previous E60 M5. Daily stop-and-go, local commuting generated 7.5 mpg with the V10...

Last fill up was 11.28mpg prior to that it was 10.83mpg. I paid my $1300 guzzler tax, I feel fine about my poor gas mileage.
