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.
I'm surprised that a ZHP gets that much worse mileage than a standard 330. On long highway trips with around 75 mph average, I see over 30mpg on the OBC, with results backed up by manual calculations; range indicated upwards of 450 miles. Even in Europe with a green engine, I averaged 25.5 mpg with a mix of city driving and very high speed Autobahn/Autoroute driving.
