Wow, these numbers all are better than my S4 (15 MPG highway, max). I did not realize getting the M3 would be so green!

I get on average about 14mpg but that is all city driving. When I get some hwy in there than I am usually around 17mpgs. And I drive my car pretty hard to be honest!

2011 6MT
Daily Driver & track days
80% highway / 20% city
5,800 miles

Track: 5-6 mpg (devoured a 1/4 tank at NHMS in one lapping session)
Overall: 17-18 mpg

I drive the car mostly on the faster side. Honestly, it needs a 7th gear for the manual trans (a la new Porsche 911). Not sure why the M-DCT w/another gear isn't better on gas?

Let's face it - the car was designed for performance w/out much concern for mileage. That's shifted now w/the move toward smaller engines and turbos. However, there's nothing like having a screaming V-8 in a small car. To echo a reaction from my coworker "That car has a V-8? That's awesome." I agree with him. It's awesome.

Just finally finished breaking in my ///M3 (6 spd) today and getting ~15 mpg overall (250 miles on a full tank). I do about 75% of my driving in the city and 25% on the freeway and usually in MDM 99% of the time.

So what is your average mpg?
List:
Drive it with a lead foot or mildly
How many miles to the tank

Thanks guys.
