From my casual experience, and without any comparison to other 3ers, it seems like my car reacts very negatively to moderate throttle inputs with regard to fuel mileage. It seems to take a very light touch on the loud pedal for good MPG. With a light touch, and without cruise, I have seen 31+ MPG on the highway, but that's doing the accelerate down hill, and hold it steady with some speed decrease uphill.

My mixed driving (with mostly around town) sees about 21.7 from the OBC readout, FWIW.
