The diesel is practically a hybrid!

Who needs a hybrid with all this torque and great MPG

that has nothing to do with resetting the odo, i dont think.....

it shows how many miles approx you can get out of the gas left in the tank at the moment, so in your case you can still go another 362 miles before empty.

or someone correct me cause i am stupid.

No. that's the trip odo. The distance to empty would be shown where the tank average is, when you are cycling thru the BC using the button on the stalk.

Uhh that number indicates, how many miles he has traveled... The how many miles you got left to go on the remaining fuel will show up where it says 30.1 mpg when you toggle the switch.

That's the tripmeter (362mi since last reset.)

The FTE (fuel to empty) symbol is above the odo/ trip, and looks like like a arrow pointing to a fuel pump on the lower left corner and the mo to go on the lower right.

Awesome! Diesels are better than hybrids on the highway anyway.

I know, his name says it all, perfecto.

Back to the subject at hand..... well sort of.....

99.99% of the people think electric cars are so green and environmentally conscious, well, I am the .01% who think otherwise. Where do yall think all that electricity that powers these cars come from?

COAL http://www.powerscorecard.org/tech_d...?resource_id=2

Coal that produce massive amounts of CO2, the main culprit of global warming and the hole in the ozone. The coal industry is doing such a great great job lobbying in Washington and brainwashing the general public...... it is frightening that we all (well, 99.99%) came to the conclusion that by plugging it in we are doing mother earth a favor......

Not saying burning gas or diesel is any better of course.

The world's greatest automobile would be a hybrid diesel-electric... come to think of it, locomotives figured it out years ago.

with that mpg, I am guessing he does a lot of highway/non city driving.

If the government really wants to improve fuel economy they would rebuild all the flat and uphill roads to make sure they go downhill. Everyone knows you get the best mileage going downhill.

I had an '11 X5 35d as a loaner for five days. I reset the MPG setting leaving the dealer's lot. Returning it on Tuesday the reading was 24.2. That is mostly city driving with only one 20 mile interstate trip out of a couple of hundred miles. I'm sold.

Mein Auto: 2011 M3 coupe
LA to SF round trip mostly above 80mph touching 95mph in spots to pass. climbing up grapevine like it was flat. avg 24mpg total. only used 3/4 tank each way. try that in a prius. I bet it wouldn't be much better and would certainly less fun or comfortable. I am waiting for a 320d for my daily commuter. M3 for fun and track days.

mileage

Last highway only trip: 26mpg at 75 mph average with "green" (5000 mile) engine. I suspect it will improve as I accumulate more miles. Mileage in the city is ok (20) but far short of what I got with the RX400h I had as a loaner (35).
Our Lexus dealer provides almost new RX400h's as service loaners. Very impressive vehicles but the regenerative braking is weird and gives off a whirring sound. Sort of cool though to pull away from a stop with no engine noise.
True that electric vehicles still create emissions because the power must be generated somewhere, but it is far easier/cheaper to control/scrub CO2 at the single source (power plant) than at multiple sources (individual vehicles).

I'm consistently getting 20.6 to 20.8 mpg in the 5 months (I mostly drive locally) I have owned the 35d. I went to San Antonio from Houston.....around 200 miles.......and the mpg was 21.0 with 75 miles/hr speed. Total miles on the 35d: 3500.

I was hoping for 24-24 when I went to San Antonio...is there a break in period..it already has 3500 miles.

For comparison, my wife's '08 X5 3.0si has averaged 14.84 MPG since new (I calculate each tank). Her best was 20.37 MPG on an all-highway trip, and her worst was 12.89 MPG all-city. Nearly all of her tanks are 14-15 MPG (filled it yesterday... 14.14 MPG).

I can't wait for her diesel to arrive.

The RX400H is amazing also for the absolute quiet when you are driving. If you like total isolation from the road/traffic noise that is the way to go. A very eerie feeling after the noise of BMW's -- which is good in a mechanical, engine sound sort of way -- but still it is noise.

The FWD platform (transverse engine) of the RX400h cramps my legroom. I don't fit comfortably, and it handles like... crap.

Probably why the ladies love it so much! I never see a man driving one, only the "ladies of a certain age" but there are plenty of them around.

Yes Straight men don't buy MDXs or RXs. They buy the Mercedes, BMW, or Audi
