I think I'm sold on ARS. Here are the fuel consumption stats from BMW's international website:
Figures for BMW 740Li xDrive
Fuel consumption
Combined: 8.3 l/100 km [converts to 28.33 mpg]
Urban: 11.2 l/100 km [converts to 21.00 mpg]
Extra-urban: 6.6 l/100 km [converts to 35.64 mpg]
CO2 emissions combined: 195 g/km

Figures for BMW 750Li xDrive
Fuel consumption
Combined: 9.4 l/100 km [converts to 25.02 mpg]
Urban: 13.2 l/100 km [converts to 17.82 mpg]
Extra-urban: 7.2 l/100 km [converts to 32.67 mpg]
CO2 emissions combined: 219 g/km

Granted, these numbers are probably computer generated, not american "luxo-barge" foot generated so EPA estimates will differ wildly...however, for me, these are good numbers because they represent the potential of what the car can do. As an example, I can almost hit 37 mpg in my wifes F30 going 65 mph on a flat road...this information is useful.
