Both Octane and fuel consumption are measured differently in Europe! Even the size of a gallon is different.

10l/100km is 25.5 miles per US Gallon.
15l/100km is 15.7 miles per US Gallon.
The 2003 MINI Cooper S used an older less fuel efficient motor.
Our 2008 MINI Cooper used 6.58l/100km. That is 35.7 mpg-US. We always used regular grade fuel.
The models and equipment (standard and optional) illustrated in this post reflect my misunderstanding of vehicles supplied by BMW AG to the German market. In other EU member states, the truthyness of my posts may vary. Please ignore this post. Subject to change.
