Good that the computer is reasonably accurate.

I'd be interested to know what kind of results people are getting with intense stop-and-go driving on short trips involving frequent cold starts. That's the kind of driving I do and my 530i barely cracks 15 mpg under these conditions.

my daily routes are 5-10 miles one way 30-40mph moderate stop-and-go, the F30 N26 pulls 25mpg. On freeway 60-70mph it can hit 36mpg.

Wow, 33-36mpg highway is impressive for F30 N55. It would have been my choice too were it not for the aggressive radar wielding tax collectors in my locales.:-)
