I'm getting about 26 MPG on average with a mix of 80% freeway (some light traffic) / 20% city driving and driving an average of 75 MPH on the freeway when possible.

EPA estimates for the 2.8 sDrive seem like a stretch, but I'm getting exactly what I predicted based on the MPG rating of the F30. I knew that the X1 couldn't get as good mileage based on the Cd of 0.33 vs 0.29 and a larger frontal area. I heard that the F30 rating was decreased by the EPA to its current rate, so if the X1 ended up better than rated, it would have been a bonus.
