What's your best gas milage in your Bimmer?

How about this??!!

At half tank, 284mi (I should mention that I had to reset the trip after 13mi) and OBC reading of 30.9mpg
Full tank = 16.6gal
Half tank = 8.3gal
Calculated MPG: (284+13)mi/8.3gal = 35.8mpg!

I know... it's a bit more than Half tank, but so what. I still think it's impressive.

I've gotten as much as 270 miles from a full tank of M20B27, and only about half was on the highway. I actually don't get much better mileage on the highways than I do in town, since I can't really drive fast in traffic and I take all that freeway space as a challenge.

Haha, yea, I pretty much did do that. Actually, to be honest, when I first got her, I would average around 28 calculated miles/gal. however, when the dealer reset my DME, I now bearly ever touch 26mpg, which totally blows since now a days the gas is ever more expensive. But yea, that was a trip for school to research a roadway... hence the long distance driving on a continual highway with the sparatic spirited acceleration.

25 with aftermarket exhaust.. i just put the stock back on and i have a 700 mi trip ahead of me, so we'll see how it goes from there.. but so far with the stock exhaust the difference is unbelievable! its so much better

my BEST is about 28mpg on a full tank, it was all highway and i was crusin at like 85ish the whole way, no need to accelerate much since there was literally NO ONE on the road.

i did take it up to 105ish when i got bored to have some fun (not the same drive as my kill story)

but normally i get only 22 around town
