Not too much. My average, according to MDrive is 13.5 L/100km. That was a 800 kph drive, averaging ~120-130kph. A "few" hard accelerations, and a couple of steady drives @ 130-140 kph. I tried to vary the speed/rpm as much as I could, but it was hard to do with a 800 km highway drive home.

All in all.......I don't care what the fuel economy, or the apparent lack there of ! , is!

250-300 kms with a 53l fill,now I am getting about 350kms per fill.The trip says 14.8l/100 in mostly urban use a little highway.My wifes 335 gets about 500 per fill in the same driving.The problem with the M3 is the small tank,not the consumption
