Mein Auto: 2003 325i
Weeeelll, sometimes Karl Bimmer (2003 325i) gets 340 miles to the tank, sometimes 360, and every oncet in a while 390-400.

I've noticed that if I do a lot of freeway driving right after I fill up, I get waaay better mileage overall - if I'm on the freeway a lot the first 1 or 2 days after I fill up, even if I do a lot of city driving the rest of the week, my mileage is pretty good.

On the other hand, if I fill up, then do a lot of short trips around the Land Of Bovine Living Also Known As Chino Hills, then hit the freeways 3-4 days later, my overall mileage goes down.
