Mpg report 535i

Road trip to FL. Wife is driving. I reset the speed once we got on the interstate. This was 150 miles into the trip. At just over 200 miles now 29.4. I did change the oil the other day at 1759 miles. Valvoline 5w-40 full synthetic. I would think the 40 oil would get worse mpg

Great mileage! Is that with the cruise control set at 80 mph? Any hills or mostly flat?

Remind me, do you have RWD or AWD?

I haven't been able to get this fuel efficiency - I'm getting around 24-25 on the highway, with hills and moderate traffic. I have AWD.

Hmm.
