Power button doesn't effect mileage one way or the other. It just adjusts the throttle pedal tip-in. That's all it does on an E9x M3.

DCT: mostly D3 or D4 driving on the street and freeway...

~200 miles at about 1/4 tank left...although I coded my fuel warning not to go off until 1/8 of a tank, I still fill up around 1/4 of a tank left..

avg per idrive is 16.2 mpg's...

recently drove out to vegas to...from vegas to LA is easier on the mpg's as it's more down than uphill...got about 273 miles on that tank..and I did let that go down to about 3/16 of a tank or so...

Back and forth to work I get 18 mpg minimum. On the autobahn going 75-85 mph, I average 22 mpg. Full tank usually yields 359 miles. I only pump 93 octane in her once every week. Though she often gets well deserved refills after returning home from the Nuerburgring in the middle of the week as well. And DCT.

You have to factor if its Either dct or manual transmission. With mt i am getting an average per full tank of about 180-220 with mostly city driving. Agressive driving usually gets my number down to about 160 .my car is remaped i dont know if that means anything

Get around 210/220 miles with 1/8 tank remaining. Manual calculation of mpg (computer is way optimistic) says I get about 16mpg.

Best ever was 330 miles, but that was pure highway. I usually average around 230ish (don't go completely empty), and the trip computer says about 18.4mpg.

I hit 300 on a long road trip down to Alabama. Almost hit 500 in the F30 335i. Gotta love that damn EcoPro setting!

Mostly highway commuting with plenty of spirited driving, I avg 17mpg and about 240 per tank very roughly. I've seen 24mpg on the highway on cruise control at the speed limit though... That gets boring real fast!

Just have the gong coded out, switch the display to v=, drive it like you stole it, and buy a hyundai DD if you are worried about gas mileage! Enjoy the 8k rpm v8 as much as you can, they are an endangered species...

Lots and lots of highway driving. Of course, that number dropped soon because I couldn't resist having some fun. I'll update on my next fill up.

It's one of the special editions. BMW released it in limited quantity.

I'm getting 13.3 l/100Km which equates to approximately 17.7 mpg (US gallons). Its a DCT driving an urban commute. I must admit that this has surprised me a little as my 3.2l 6MT V6 Alfa GT gets 13.8 l/100Km.
