My fuel meter must be broken it shows 15.5mpg but at the pump and based on actual miles driven it's about 12mpg.

I have been averaging about 17.5 mpg (US) for the winter in mixed city and highway driving.

Last November I took a long trip up north and deliberately tried for mileage (cruise control the whole way at ~10% over the speed limit).

I got 26.7 mpg (US) on the winter tires over a distance of 750 km.

Damn I must be lucky...I drove from Houston to Austin (Half tank of gas) then around town (the other half tank of gas) and checked my computer:

16.9 mpg - My sticker when I bought the car said 14 City 20 Highway

And yes, I was laying into it!

I hear ya! Funny how everyone calls the e92 a BEAST and that's what it is! I was getting on mine today going to work (only had it like 4 days now) and damn it makes my heart pound...this thing just does not give up! I can't stop thinking about it, I wake up, its on my mind, I got to sleep, its on my mind. I can't wait to come up with an excuse just to drive somewhere...its ridiculous now. Ive owned 4 M3's now and 2 other bmw's and this one makes me feel like Im 16 again! I'm 35 now...so to feel 19 years younger is A W E S O M E

Use to think that driving "quickly" to your cruising speed was efficient and good for mileage, but not sure that's the case with the M3.
