HA! If you drive it hard, you'll be lucky to get 13 MPH in the city. Daily driver to work, mostly freeway: 17 MPG.

The only silver lining on the cloud is driving really mellow on a long distance trip. I'll get 22.

20/14. I was concerned abt mileage too before buying 2 months ago. The sales guy said his customers were getting 27 mpg on the highway from the 335. Then I drove both cars back to back. It was no contest.

Hey, I have a Prius too so if milage is critical, I can always drive it.

I get 14mpg - all town mileage - I filled it from a 1/4 tank the other day it cost me 38(88.9p per litre) which was to do 140 miles! You don't buy cars like these for economy - this is my second car anyway!

I'm getting 14.3 as a DD, mostly city. I push the car pretty hard so hear the sweet engine\exhaust combo. That's what I bought the car for right?

Yes, BMW could\should have done better on the MPG. Doesnt a Z06 get like 25 mpg on the hwy? If GM can do it, why not BMW?

Pure city, 13.9mpg (according to computer) and is very consistent. I love it. My wife drives a hybrid lexus to ease away any environmental guilt.

Maybe because the Z06 weighs in around 3100 lbs..?

Ya but the Z06 is lighter doesn't rev as high and doesn't have the same HP per liter.


The gas mileage does suck but oh well not that dramatic from anything else i've driven.
