530D miles per tank?

Hi guys,
Maybe there was a thread about this, but i tried googled it and couldnt find anything on this forum.

Could you tell me how many miles/kilometers do you do per tank? As before i had e60 530d, i had way much more miles/km per tank than with f10 530d. I do understand, the f10 is heavier and has more bhp even though its the same engine, also my current f10 has bigger diameter tires which also adds up.

With previous e60 530d i have used to do ~580miles/900km which was 50/50 motorways/city, but with f10 530d i do 440miles/700km where i do 70/30 motorways/city. The driving i could say is normal, not like a full foot on accelerator.

Just would like to know your miles/km per tank and the way you driving.

Mein Auto: BMW 535d
In stop-and-go, daily short commute driving, I average about 380-400 miles to an empty tank. Fuel consumption is about 21-22 mpg in these circumstances. I'm sure you know that my 535d is really a 530d.

North American 535dx (Euro 530dx): I get about 450-550 miles per tank. If I'm only doing highway driving I can go 600 miles on a tank. Typically I'm averaging about 28mpg or about 500 miles to a tank. The wide range depends largely on how I drive or where I drive (city vs highway)

German 530 xd: I get about 900 kms (approx 560 miles) out of the tank and go mainly highway (let's say 85%) but obviously not at full speed

Under those conditions, my car would do about the same. On extended highway trips (all freeway), I average about 36-37 mpg at 70 mph.

My numbers are in agreement.

530D miles per tank?

I get 630-650 miles per tank if I drive in Eco. I do about 80/20 highway/city. Average is about 34 mpg US over the life of the car. Max range I got is slightly over 700 miles, all highway going 65-70 mph in Eco. Highway is about 38-40 mpg. My highest was in the 50 mpg range, but I have idea how the heck I did that (I was talking on the phone and I guess I was going slower than normal).

LOL. I wish my rush hour commute was 60mph....... try 20 in South Bay, CA. 10 mi in 45 min sometimes.

I get ~28mpg commuting suburban/city 10-12 mi each way.

Highway - leisurely 65-70 mph moderate hills I get 40-42. 80-85 mph down I-5 to LA (360 mi) mostly flat 38 mpg.

Hard to say miles per tank since I generally fill up at a quarter tank, but I did get 600 miles on one trip per tank. BTW I never use eco-pro. I didn't drive this car to feel like a Taurus. I am in and out of sport and Comfort Plus.

Drive it on the highway under 2000 rpm and you'll get 1100 kms out of a tank.
Drive it as it is supposed to and you'll need a refill at 650 kms.
As in city traffic.

I get about the same with my US 535d but no Eco mode; instead sport mode from time to time.
Verified by manual calcs, not just the cars computer. I've averaged 34.7mpg since new...600 miles per tank are no issue; I've done over 700 per tank on a few occasions when I watched my driving and used Eco.

On a trip to Palm Springs in February I got as much as 37mpg on a tank and nearly made the trip from Las Vegas to Boise on a single tank ~630miles. Needed to stop for a bio break and figured I'd fill up....
