Have been checking a couple other forums in regards to European built cars and they seem to think the trip computer is set to imperial gallons, one by the literature and that when they do a manual check they get different reading to the computer.

An imperial gallon is 20% larger than a US gallon, this quite interesting, I have manually check my Ltr/100klm and its pretty close to the computer.

I wonder if the boys over at BMWCoding forum have on this, I know there is not alot of difference in the firmware ( its coded in German anyway), there is really no difference in the code running in my X5 to yours or one in Europe. I have had changes done to mine via coders in Europe who have added a couple features you get in the US.

Think I need to read my X5 manual and see what it says about ltr/mpg?
X5 F15 M50d White, 20"rims, Yellow Calipers, Ceramic Pads. Better off saying what it does not have and that's a B&O Audio System, other than that every option box is ticked.
