Any real world MPG stats on 550GT Xdrive?

Looking for some real world numbers, include your routine drive and driving style.
Trying to see how the new V8 compares to the one in 2012.
Thanks

15/22 seems pretty accurate though I don't do much highway driving to have tested the later stat... When I fill up to full the car indicates that I have about 248 miles until I'll need to fill up again, which is about 15.5 to the gallon... Of course this is dependent on the type of driving you do and elevation. Would be interested to hear what you're averaging after you've had your car for a while!

Fuelly.com is great for this but there aren't many 5GT owners using it

I have a local drive (country roads and city streets - no highway) if I'm going into the office which is probably about 3 days a week on average. The rest of the time I'm travelling to clients which sometimes involves a highway for about 75 miles round trip. I am currently sitting at 17.4 mpg. I'd say the stated 15/22 is pretty spot on.

FWIW, while I have a 535 x-drive, I'll say that the onboard fuel computer is a little optimistic, at least on mine, compared to averaging fuel added verses miles traveled. It's within 2-3% when I've checked it, but don't do that that often. On the 535, EPA is, I think, 22 combined, and that's what I see most of the time. I have seen over a real 30mpg on a long interstate trip at relatively fixed speeds, which exceeds the EPA rating of 27mpg for my vehicle. So, the point really is, how you drive, and where you drive, but the EPA ratings are close. Got a heavy foot, brake at the last moment, need to be the first away from the intersection, your results will be considerably worse!
