EPA is 19/26 on the BMW, while it is 19/29 on the Porsche. In real-world, I got 28 mpg in the X5 during a recent roadtrip, and drivers in Alaska were reporting 32 mpg in the Cayenne (I was driving hard, and off-road, so I averaged 27.8 during the whole day).

Gone, but never forgotten... my E70 X5 35d, E90 335i, E46 330i, E36 328i, E70 X5 3.0si, E53 X5 3.0i.
