My wife just drove down to Eugene, OR and back (to Seattle) about 300 miles each way, pretty flat, and got 35.6 mpg. That's what we have gotten on I5 down to Portland and back, so there has been no loss of mileage on ours. For a portion of that drive, the car used only 7 gallons for around 275 miles, which is almost 40 mpg.

I'm not a real urban driver, so I might believe city mileage has gone down. I think there's too much noise in everyone's driving habits and types of trips before/after recall to make firm conclusions. Too bad we don't know what BMW has really done. Those guys are so secretive.
