Mein Auto: 2012 528xi
What's your MPG on 2012 528xi?

I know we all buy BMWs for the joy of driving and because it truly is the ultimate driving machine, BUT...just out of curiosity, what is the MPG that everybody is getting?

I've had my car for about 2 weeks now and have already put close to 1200 miles on it. The 2012 528xi is rated at 22 city/32 hwy. With my '98 Acura 2.3L 4 cyl, I used to consistently get around 32 mpg, even with a busted exhaust on the muffler. On my new 5, driving the same exact commute in the same exact driving style (same speed, same roads, same acceleration rate, etc), 49% comfort mode/49% ecopro mode/2% sport mode), I've been getting about 29mpg per fillup. Seeing as the 528 is a smaller engine combined with an 8 speed transmission (it revs around 2500 at 80mph!!), and driving like a grandma typically at 65 during the break-in period, I was expecting to be getting more like 35. Anybody have better/worse mpg?
