Does someone know the gas difference between a E34 & E38

Hello,

I own a 1995 525i auto. I am looking to purchase a cleaner body (E34 'again' or E38) but had a question on the two models E34 vs E38 gas consumption. How much more gas will the 95 or 98 Bmw 740iL consume?? I like the gas mileage I get with the E34 and would not mind paying just a little more for the bigger car.

Fuel Economy says: E34 16/23 (18/25) & E38 15/22 (16/24)

Has anyone own both models and had a chance to realize any differences???


I currently avg on my E34 (18/24)

the 7 series is a bigger and heavier car, gas mileage will be worse
