I just stumbled upon the technical data on the BMW.com website ( http://www.bmw.com/com/en/newvehicle...ata/index.html )

Here is what is says for fuel economy (my guess is that the first number is for Manual transmission and the second is for auto):

Urban in L/100km - 12.0 (11.1)
Extra urban in L/100km - 6.9 (6.7)
Combined in L/100km - 8.8 (8.3)

Using a converter ( https://www.google.com/search?q=l%2F...ddress&ie=&oe= ) we come up with the following results:

City in US MPG - 19.6012 (21.1905)
Highway in US MPG - 34.0891 (35.1067)
Combined in US MPG - 26.72 (28.33)

Tank capacity is 60 liters = 15.85 Gal.

So, according to these figures, the combined range on a tank would be 423.42-449.03 miles. At a current US national average for Super Unleaded gas being $3.65/gal - that translates to:

$57.85 / tank - $0.136 - $0.128 / mile

This is phenomenal in my book.

All of that is listed with a disclaimer:

"The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.

Further information on the official fuel consumption and on the official specific CO2 emissions of new automobiles can be found in the guidelines on fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of new automobiles which are available free of charge at all retail outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany..." (BMW, 2013)

So, these figures are given for 18" tires.
