New fuel pump, better gas mileage

I average between 28-29 mpg, these numbers come from gallons used verses miles traveled. Computers are only a great tool, just do the real math.

X5 Gas Consumption

Mine is a 2012 w/sports package and twin turbo, and they say sucks down a bit more fuel and I get 18-20 mpg.
So something has to be wrong.
