Upon arrival to Hearst i realized - only about quarter tank of fuel was used!

On my way back I wanted to get home quick, so i took 101 and pushed my MCS hard. So It was freeway drive, no stops, but spirited drive above speed limit. Wnen i got home the tank was next to empty.

So if you push it - it'll get thirsty.
Nice...but alas, we don't buy BMWs for "fuel efficiency"...
