Bragging rights? Or should I be ashamed?

19.4 is the highest I have EVER seen my car at... although the fun factor has dropped slightly from babying the car...


And yes, thats 184.7 miles on that half a tank

That's amazing... I got slightly over that when I drove back from Phoenix. Now, it sits right at 14.2.

I vote for Bragging Right.

I don't push the car, and I am getting 15.9mpg mainly driving local.

There's scientific tests that show the BMW M3 gets better gas mileage than a Toyota Prius

My car shows 22.4 and only go for spirited drives on country back roads and to the grocery store and I'm high revving most of the trip. I'm great at making small adjustments to the accelerator so I can glide and do other various things to maximize mpg while still getting to drive hard.

Picked up the car with 0 miles and now I have 7,000 and I've been at 22.4 nearly the whole time.

Congrats on both counts, the fuel economy and the 95k on the clock Your numbers make me question mine haha I just came from a 1100 km (roughly 684 miles) road trip and averaged 12.4l/100 km which would be 22.8mpg??? Mine must be broken since average cruising speed was between 120km and 130km with lots of hard accelerations when passing traffic and hitting 180km a few times...most def didn't drive delicately which makes me doubt my numbers. Spent just over $250 in gas

That's pretty much impossible. I'm sure you have a glitch in your software.

I did euro delivery in June and I believe I was last on the list at my dealership so I did get one of the last e9x's.

I don't believe it is. I've always gotten good mpg by knowing when and how to feather the throttle or glide or drive to maximize mpg. Also I live in the country with no traffic so every drive for me is long open roads which also helps.

yeah I've gotten 20MPG before coasting. With the traffic in NY it's impossible to get anything close to that. I average 14-16 MPG and I'm ok with that. I knew I wasn't buying a prius, and I considered filling up every 4 days to be an expense of driving this car. Oh well..

One very very very strange thing I did notice was that driving in S mode gave me high MPG than in D mode... go figure
