Fuel economy BMW335i

I'm new to a 2008 335i. So far fuel economy is about 21 mpg. Is this typical?

Highway, city, combination? There's an existing thread discussing this topic:

Of course hwy miles are better than city. I think in the 335 it is even more so than the norm. It is a heavy car with a powerful motor. Every time you have to get it going from a stop, it costs. I have gotten 31 mpg on the interstate, at 75 or so. It was with E0 gas and a MT. City driving I get 17 or 18. N4S

I sit with hard driving and start stop 22-24.7 and with highway and only a few redlines 26-28.9... I'd say its within reason, just remember you don't need to hammer it to get up to speed so that should help you save some MPGs.

Exactly as mine displays.

Lead foot yet propensity to hypermile, neutral.

There's a balance.

We don't own one of these to poodle around.

If we worry too much about mpg we will have less fun.



About 26 mpg on motorways and much less if terrifying the mrs on B roads.

Agree! If you are looking for 30+ mpg you bought the wrong car.

I think 26-28 with 100+ redlines every now and then is very good.

30 mpg with my d is a bad day spent stop-and-go.
