Lets see now, CO2 is the stuff we breath out when we exhale, the stuff that plants need to grow and produce O2 and the stuff that provides a head on beer. Sounds great, lets tax it!

Holy crap, and here's the proof. Enjoy.
Holy crap! I just got 32mpg with my diesel. Enjoy the gas station with your 35i.

Also another thing for refining. A refinery can adjust the way it refines oil. While you state 20 gallons of gas vs. 10 gallons for diesel, this can easily be adjusted for specific markets. If our refineries were producing 20 gallons of diesel and 10 gallons of gas, all your 35i and 50i would be parked on the side of the road.

True, but I suspect most refinery engineers would disagree with your use of the word "easily."

Mein Auto: 2008 X3; 2007 650i conv
As testament to my love of BMW, let me just say that I've owned six of them, including the current two listed in my sig below. However, when it comes to the next vehicle I plan to buy with acceleration similar to my 650, cargo/passenger capacity greater than my old X5, and hands down the most fuel efficient available, this is it:

My deposit is already in for 2012. After that, I'm hoping BMW comes up with something similar or better.

Right, then why aren't you driving a hybrid SUV?

This thread is just a bit of red meat being waved by 0428 to see what crap he can stir up... the other thread- along the lines of "hey check out these ratings"- is fine, but this thread is just crap.

To think that 'green footprints' or some other singular metric, derived under strict test conditions is the be all and end all for assessing ones purchasing decisions for their use, under their local conditions, is not to understand these ratings.

COČ emissions: 236 g/km

xDrive35d
Combined consumption: 8,3 l/100km
COČ emissions: 220 g/km

xDrive40d
Combined consumption: 7,5 l/100km
COČ emissions: 198 g/km

So between those three motors, both diesels are cleaner and consume less fuel.
These are BMW offical figure !!!
it's something similar for my 30d but I'm averaging 12,8 L/100 which if I switch over the computer it says 22mpg.
Now I'm not light footed, but I don't race around everywhere either !
What I'm trying to say is, That I don't believe that my 30d will return 8,3 L/100
I'd be dancing happy if I saw 10 and wondering where the hole was if I saw 15L/100

That's odd, perhaps you do a lot of urban driving? I drove the X5 once last weekend and averaged just around 8,0 l/100km doing modest (80-110km/h) highway driving with the air conditioning on in 33°C heat.

BMW lists the xDrive30d (up until this month) as 8,1l /100km.

I've started trying to drive with a green mind and light foot !!!!

on other cars it was possible to reset it, but I haven't found that yet, or in the hand book.
