Yes. Bring it in. Somethings very wrong. Maybe you can even get BMW to reimburse you for the extra gas you had to buy as part of the warranty claim. Good luck. Keep us posted

I agree with J08M3.

Sounds like something serious. You should bring it in, and don't hesitate to start yelling either. Them New Jersey "sales associ.. excuse me, guidos" will indefinitely blame you for it.

Pull a Snooki or J-Woww and yell back at them if they deny the warranty claim to fix your .3 mpg drop.

funnily my gas mileage went from 16.1 to 15.8 as well.

personally noted the above.
