BMW 330d
« on: 09:12, Wed 24 March 2010 »
Anyone got any info about these cars, anything to watch for, do they really give 40mpg+
Just thinking ahead as the Evo may have to go at some point 66 miles to 20 litres of fuel = not being able to go any distance without knowing where all the petrol stations are  :mrgreen:
Think I may be getting old :( I'm thinking about a more economical car....

I wish it were that I had a heavy right foot, it was normal driving, well untill I got to a bit of dual carriageway & a motorbike came up  :mrgreen:  then it was foot to the floor.....
yeah 15 MPG, will be trying a re-map 1st as the standard map is well rich.... I'd be happy with 20 MPG... :lol:

Depending on who tuned the carb & how heavy your right foot is, I'd like to think an ave. of 25-30mpg easy on a tuned car, standard no idea, mine never stayed like it for long enough.

My Saab tells me it is averaging 26-28MPG, driving the R5 in comparision i would say it easily does 30-35MPG, that's normal driving. Obviously the more excited i get the quicker the petrol light comes on.

They are apparently good for 40mpg and crying out for a remap.
