YOU control the gas mileage. Use the loud pedal less and you will get better gas mileage.

Mein Auto: 04 M3 Coupe SMG

mixed highway/city driving (70/30) I usually get around 20mpg. Freeway trips I've seen it close to 30. One time driving to LA from Phx the computer told me 30+mpg.. I couldn't believe it. Might have been roads going downhill more because on the way back I didn't get any better than 26mpg.

People complaining about low mpg on their m3 should go buy a Yaris

Gas mileage is inversely proportional to the amount of fun I'm having driving
