Sounds about right. I'd expect a bit higher but not that much. You could be 'lead' footing it, which sucks gas like crazy. To note, the 328 doesn't actually get that much better mpg than the 335 which is rated 26mpg combined if I recall.

I get around 24mpg in the city with my upgraded wheels/tires (265 rear 235 front Mich PSS) which is a bit less than I got with the regular OEMs. Although, I just got 34mpg on the highway on my return trip home yesterday cruising at 78mph. I think the cold weather made my tires have less rolling resistance perhaps?

Could everyone in Europe specify which gallon they're using please?

Originally I was going to get the 320d but I've been recently wondering whether to get the 328i, since it doesn't cost THAT much more than the 320d and diesel in the UK is 8p/litre more than petrol. The official figures for the 320d and 328i are 60mpg and 44mpg respectively, so since real-world figures for the 320d are about 50mpg I'd assumed that the 328i would simply give 15mpg less than that; I could live with 34mpg but judging from the posts in this thread it's likely to be considerably less than that, in which case fuel and insurance would be just too expensive, not to mention being too hard to justify for a hypocritical environmentalist like myself.

(All figures above are in UK gallons, and yes we buy our fuel in litres, use miles on the road and measure our cars' efficiency in mpg. Go figure. )

Hi mate did u get the 328i? What's it like? Fuel Econ?

I got 34.6 yesterday for a 2 hour interstate trip at 78 mph on eco-mode on cruise. I will be duplicating the trip again tonight, so I can update again. This is on a 2014 328i with sports package and rwd using 93 octane fuel holding 78 mph the whole way except to pass.

I have a 335 w/ MPPK and MPE. On a per trip basis of about 50 miles on eco pro, I average 30mpg, mostly on highway. On a per tank basis I average 25-26mpgs.
