About 260-270 miles with a manual 6 speed before the car starts running on fumes. Mostly city driving, my average speed for the past 6 months has been 23 mph. :eek:

You should also be asking what motor. I have never really paid much attention. I let the computer do all of the work for me.

I do know that I get 23.3mpg though.

Have a 05 325i with step that has done about 1400 miles.

Average highway 27mpg (though I have gotten to 30mpg on one longer run)
Average city 21-22mpg.
On a full tank it has averaged 310-340 miles with about 5 liters or about 1.1gl still in the tank (highest consumption was from the first fill-up which got about 265 miles). Sport mode does push this up about 0.4mpg on average.

Driving tends to be 80-85% city and the rest highway.

ZHP == Performance Package.

I get about 400 miles to the tank from mostly highway driving. 250 just sounds atrocious for a 325!

I usually get 360 with about 75% highway driving. The most was 430 which was almost all highway. Better than any car I have ever owned!

27mpg consistently. Suburban driving. 400+ miles per tank.

Be aggressive when you feel like it (that's why you have the car), but be miserly when you don't need to be aggressive. Moderate, smooth acceleration. Predict when you'll need to stop and back off on the gas (less brake dust too). Try to hold the gas pedal with steady pressure when driving at constant speed. :dunno:

That's the beauty of this car as a daily driver. You can have your cake and eat it too!

When are you filling up/counting miles to? When the low fuel light goes on? I don't fill up most times until I have gone at least 50 miles past when my light goes on. When I'm getting 400 my tank is pretty much bone dry.

Just our of curiosity how many miles has your car done? Generally speaking, as your engine and tranny breaks in it gets better milage.

You can try resetting your OBC after you next fill up and see if the numbers gets better.

Also as suggested above observe your driving style. Heavy acceleration will negatively impact your consumption. Try more smooth acceleration and see if that helps too.
