Do you believe in MPG Miracles?!!

So for as long as I can remember I have struggled, seriously struggled to get my MPG anywhere even close to 20MPG in my 2010 e90 M3.

Imagine my surprise when I checked my Trip Computer after a fairly brisk jaunt to Denver this evening!!



Yes...that says 26.4 MPG! I know, I know that the trip computer isn't accurate and I need to pull out pen and paper for the true MPG, but man o man was this great to see!

I think my MPG indicator is broken. Always ends up in the low teens.

Actually came down I25 from Fort Collins. Moving at a descent clip. With stops and traffic I still averaged 63.5MPH.

I pretty much destroyed all the hyper-miling on the way home!

i've gotten 20mpg during a road trip in the e90m3 when I was on motor. drove from florida to maryland. I got around 315-295 a tank during the trip. Your mpg indictator does it's average off of injector duty cycle. I found this out when I supercharged my car and was using bigger than stock injectors I was getting readings of 27mpg on the same roads doing the same speed I had before on motor only getting 22.
