Average MPG-is 27.6 OK?

Common wisdom says the M3 gets pretty crappy average MPG. I am showing 27.6.

Is this after you just reset it, whilst at cruising altitude, going down the highway?

As an experiment I wanted to test the effects of drafting a semi-truck. I reset the meter and drafted the truck for a distance of ~20 miles at ~60 mph. It was an improvement of a little more than 6 mpg when compared to not drafting. Just an amusement during a long trip.

It's lying to you as actual mpg is greater than 100 mpg. It's time for a dash display mod for accurate 100+mpg data display.

I've got a nice shiny slap from the back of my hand for the first person who can show 150 mpg. Your e-peen will be HUGE!!

i don't know the story behind this, but I assume people arent' that stupid, and the truck's brakes probably failed and rolled or something to that effect.
