Tips to achieve 8 or less mpg in the M

  • Drive it like you stole it
  • Use launch control often
  • Randomly blip the throttle to hear that amazing sound the s65 makes

Anything else i forgot?

I see so many threads about how to extend the MPG, you drive an M3, don't worry about the MPG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Just go to the track. I'll use over a 1/4 tank of gas in one 25-minute session sometimes.

- Hold shifts as late as possible
- random throttle blips in condo parking garage
- constantly heel and toe, ensuring max possible rev during smooth match

Excellent thread!
