i got 17mpg in the n20, about 17 in the n55 and 14 in the s65....i expect the s55 in the 15-16 range. if you are getting 25+, heck, even 20+ in any of these engines or the s55, you're doing it wrong.

Fortunately the S55 should bring asshole mode gas mileage to around 12 mpg.

Looks like I've been doing it wrong alllllll of these years. My S65's averaged about 330 per tank. I could get more or less the same MPG's out of my S54's too. In my 335i I usually get about 400 miles per tank.

I coast to red lights. Almost never use AC. No stop and go. Smoke tires often. Try not to speed...
23 mpg city driving -> 360 miles/tank

Those are pretty slow highway speeds, huh?

I do the same thing. I coast toward red lights, don't mash the gas from dead stops (...unless I'm intentionally trying to drag race the car). I'm light on the pedal most of the time, and in my 2011.5 ///M3 and my 2014 335i, I left/leave my Auto Start/Stop enabled. I'm not a stoplight junkie!

Lol! You're funny.

I'm a track dude, not a teenager who just got his hands on a high performance car.

haha. I'm supposed to be a grown up, but then night comes, and I just go insane. One of these days I will grow up, but not today.

I'm so going to ruin you next autumn.

I do. I'm totally pumped now. I went skating for the first time in months this morning, and it didn't kill me. No jumps, no ramps, but still, the ankle didn't mind the first 30 minutes.

I have hope again! And this is not an OT, since ability to skate will reduce my spending in fuel.

Asphalt. I'll never go to the ice again, since I quit. I refuse even watch the sport, except when Evgeni Plushenko comes on.

Don't laugh, the love is real.
