650i V8 Engine VERY efficient!

My sisters 09 650i is averaging 20.1 MPG and my 08 328xi is averaging the same! My car is 2 years old and her car is 2-3 months old! I'm truly amazed! Her car has been driven in a mix of city and highway(mostly city) while my car has been driven 90% in the city. That V8 is amazing!

Mein Auto: 07 650i Convertible
i get 16.4 mixed (80% city and 20% highway)...

when I go on the freeway and reset it during that drive it's around 20-24mpg 100%hiway... all depends how traffice is and how I accelerate - that extra power is sometimes too quick... I go from 50-70mph in just a few seconds and the engine is just purring... not even straining at all...

If not for HUD I'd probably be riddled with tickets... I keep catching my speed on the HUD and then have to let go of the gas... very easy to hit 80mph without intending to do so...

You...have a point. I think she's an exception because we keep getting speed camera tickets.

That is really good news to hear. I can am shocked that the V8 is doing that well, but no one can give the excuse that they didn't want the V8 because of the gas mileage anymore.

If I drive on highway I get 17mpg, when I drive around in city traffic it only gets 9.8-11 mpg. It's not too good on gas but I love driving this car !

Mein Auto: 2008 535i
Just came back from a trip to Florida. In almost 3000 miles, my twin-turbo 535i averaged 28 mpg.

With close to the same power as the V8.

I would seriously get your car checked out, surely there shouldn't be that much of a variation in mpg, as I said before I get 19.5 around town if I go up to Tampa (about 195 miles round trip) I get around 22mpg.

Getting an efficient car with forced induction is easy. Not so with a Naturally aspirated engine. This cars V8 is LEAGUES better then the forced fed engine from the 335i and 535i. Can't wait to get my ///M.
