Mein Auto: BMW 535i GT
Gas mileage

Hi,
Just got my 2013 535i GT (yeah, finally)!
How long does it take to reach the gas mileage of 30 MPG?
I am now at 1000+miles and I am still getting 23 MPG at best (driving in the most economic way I can).
The dealer gives me a bunch of lip service every time I ask.
Any suggestions?
Thanks!

30 mpg is highway average. I have a 2011 and have averaged 24 which includes both highway and city. My mileage has been about the same from the day I received it. I think 24 is great for this type car.
By the way, there are many threads already discussing this subject. Not sure we needed a new one.

Mine is stuck at around 20.9 MPG (mixed) since most of the time I just stomp around town in 3rd gear. I did get 29 MPG on a long highway trip once though.

On the highway at steady speed should take you about 10 minutes of driving. As an average, I highly doubt you will attain that mileage. 23 mpg is pretty good.
