First off I had a great time at this years Bimmerfest.

Jon mentioned there were 2000 cars this year.

2000 cars times 500 miles (average) =1,000,000 miles driven
1,000,000 divided by 22.5 mpg= 44,444 gallons of gas
44,444 times $4.10= $182,220 spent on gas for Bimmerfest :yikes:

Worth every cent. :)
