BMW General Discussion
Sponsored by: AutohausAZ.com
Talk about BMWs in general. Post official news, Bangle flames, or anything else related to BMW.
Tank before last I pussyfooted the 840 around my all suburban driving (anything over 45 is speeding) for about 100 miles and got about 13.1 mpg.
Just drove it like I usually do without worrying about it for 230 miles on the last tank. Got 14.1 mpg !
I suppose that if I ran it around in S4 it would get better yet but I keep having to "listen to it run" when I am in Sport.
BTW my '95 Mustang Cobra gets about 13.5 mpg if I baby it and about the same if I am "Listening to it run" in traffic. Of course others get to listen to the Cobra run too. The BMW is too quiet for them to enjoy
It could be that the purpose of your life is only to serve as a warning to others. Mine sometimes feels that way.
Kinda classic V8 mileage from what I hear. The torque in the big engine levels the average some it seems. And celsdogg better mileage = good news always. I'm getting better too, But I'm cheating, using mom's 2.0 4 banger VW 115HP

The hard part is convincing the other half that we need another car. Problem is that we only have a 2 car garage and I have huge trees in the front yard that get sap on any car parked in the driveway. I would be interested in buying her the new M coupe next year, but she would only want an automatic . That would be sad.
