From BMW to Toyota

:bawling:

Be honest, CSS. You sold your BMW 335d and bought a Toyota because you were having financial problems. Like the other dude said you're using fuzzy logic to justify your sale of the 335d.

The 335D and B5

Good advice. Nothing wrong with running B5 biodiesel in a 335D. I fill the tank with B5 once every six months with no problems and drive the car hard like it was built to drive. This is not a car for...

You should consider running biodiesel fuel in your 335d. The biodiesel fuel may assist in keeping the fuel injectors clean or it might not depending on the type of biodiesel used.

BMW Mothership

It may have come from the dealer or the BMW Mothership. Besides, I didn't ask and they didn't tell. Read m6pwr's post for a clear and concise explanation.

Fuel mileage re BMW M6

I do not know what engine the M6 had in the one I saw in the showroom, but the fuel mileage was miserable.

P.S. I would still prefer a diesel engine option in any high performance BMW model.

The fuel economy for a 2010 BMW M6 is 11 city, 17 highway. Your numbers do not "hold up." Saw a 2012 M6 in a showroom yesterday. Gas mileage still the same, no improvement.

Look at the MPG these things get. My SUV gets better mileage. Let me know when they design and manufacture an M1, M3, M5, or M6, with a diesel engine.

Is this forum about BMW diesel cars or traffic stops?

I was wondering the same thing while reading this thread. It's my understanding that the DEF canister is located at the rear lower half of the vehicle, not in the engine compartment.

Fuel Treatments?

You don't need fuel treatments. :tsk:

If you have access to B5 biodiesel fuel, use it. It will clean your engine as well as any expensive fuel treatment/additive.

She obtained her fuel from a place called, "GetGo" and when the employees were notified of a problem they did not shut the pump down. You get what you pay for.

B5 Biodiesel blend

Flyoydarogers, you could not state the use of B5 biodiesel blend in the 335d more succinctly.

I rest my case.
