    Over 30MPG. Yes, I was bobbling along the M8 for a few days driving gently going to couse in Edinburgh and my tank average (real, not DIS) was 30.7MPG.

    I quickly had to make up for it with flooring it /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    While on the course I was walking back to the car when a guy said "Ah, so it's yours."... as he then got into his (rather nice actually) 318Ci. "Nice, won't race you" he said. Wow, praise from a BM owner. Nice ones are out there. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    You must have reset the DIS at 60mph and not moved your foot on teh acclerator to get 36! I can get 30ish, but have to stick to 80 and acclerate slowly /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/snore.gif
