I thought MPG went out with the ark, when was the last time we saw an AA sign giving distances in Miles. Get with the programme and L/100K

Apologies all round for my previous post in this topic. I have been working in our local forum (Bimmersport.co.nz) and forgot I had flicked over into your Bimmerfest. Please carry on with your MPG
