I see high mpg claims out of diesel BMW owners but don't think they are simply telling me anything. I really think it is the fact that "mixed driving" can mean so many things. I once saw someone on here saying they average mid 30s in their 335d and explained their typical driving. Their explanation sure matched how I'd describe my driving but when I question what the computer said their average mph per tanks/resents was it was significantly higher than mine.

But regardless, what I'd classify as mixed driving I am pretty confident would not net 30mpg out of the Porsche for me. I am sure I'd be a good bit less than that.
