I broke in both engines the same way, and I drive the same way as I did in the 325. I have no performance mods. At this rate I should have just got an S4.

I thought it might be winter fuel related, but my 325 with 52K was doing fine in Dec. And it's not a small engine vs. big engine b/c the 330i EPA range is 21/30 mpg. Unless the EPA numbers are grossly inaccurate as in the hybrid Toyotas, I'm at a loss.

Is this 39.2 DME related Anyone else getting 300 miles or less from their ZHP?
I refill my gas tank at about 270 miles with 1 gallon left. The overall gas mileage for my car since new (10,000 miles) is 18.5 miles per gallon. This has been mostly city driving. In my out of town trips of pure freeway driving I have been able to get about 360 miles out of a tank. Your mileage will increase as the engine becomes less tight with additional mileage.

You must have had a "special" 325. My 318ti with the A/C on gave me 21 MPG for the same kind of normal driving as my 330i.
