The dealer says that is the way it is. Are they correct? Thanks

The best that I've received on mine is 30 mpg after resetting the mpg calculator and taking an 8-hour trip from LA to Mammoth Lakes earlier this year. A lot of "steady state" driving with cruise control. My usual 'short trip' driving results in about 18 mpg around town.

My best ever with a BMW was 33 mpg with my E46 M3 on a trip to Las Vegas (little elevation change). God bless the S54 engine and 6 MT! My return trip mpg wasn't as good as I "opened it up" wanting to escape LV as soon as possible.
