528i MPG Question


I have a 528i BMW Year, 99' and I have a question that I was wondering if anyone could answer.

I recently noticed that my MPG indicator, the digital one(not the one on the Speedometer), seems to be saying I get 5.9 MPG.

This really puzzles me because I know for a fact that is in no way possible. With a 18.5 gallon tank, that would mean I get about 110 Miles on one tank. I always get much much more than that.

I don't drive in such a way that it would possibly be that bad.
So my question is, what could be causing this? Is there some serious problem I should have looked into?

Also, I always drive in the city.

Any help is appreciated.
