Hey, I'm on that FUELLY list!

I've read that the MPG gets better as the engine breaks in. how long does that take? I'm a little disappointed with my 21.5 MPG average. I'm not even driving it hard at all. Of course, it's been extremely cold and that probably contributes to lower MPG.

19-20 on pure street driving. Generally 27 at 75mph on flatland Interstate. Noticed a 1-2mpg improvement in Interstate driving over last couple of thousand miles (now have 20K). Gets better MPG on in-town street driving than my 128i 'vert.

nope! just came back from the lake, and i did 35.5 liters on 500 kilometers, so that is about 7 liters per 100 kms which is 34 miles to the US gallon. I would have gotten about 1300 kilometers had i gone the whole tank. City, I typically run 9 liters per 100 kms...so that's where i get these numbers...my car has 23k kilometers and really is pretty good on fuel!

I think I figured it out: you guys in Canada have not yet received the "Clean Diesel Technology". Do you have to add Diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) during regular service? I suspect you also have the 8 speed tranny instead of the 6 for US.

we have the clean diesel tech...BMW makes cars for north america, not just canada or US...our market is way too small for BMW to make any decisions just based on us alone (yes, i know insert canada joke here). Secondly, I wish I had the 8 speed. I know they have it already on the x5 40d. that is a sick machine, but they don't make the 8 speed on our X535d.

I DO drive in manual mode and I don't accelerate hard off the line...on the highway, i always drive about 65 miles per hour (105 kph)

our canadian market is to small for BMW to separate the technologies... we do have the clean diesel o 8 speed tranny though...i wish! they only offer that on the gas version. In Europe they have the X5 40d which does have the 8 speed and boat loads more power. Would love to see that here!

I DON'T accelerate hard, i DO drive in manual mode and on the highway, I stick to 65 mph.

Just shy of 7k miles on my '12 X5d and it's gotten 24.2 over its life. Mix is about 50/50 city and highway, with a couple longer interstate trips (75mph) over the holidays. Anxious to see how the switch to summer diesel impacts me. I know my truck doesn't like the winterized stuff nearly as much.
