Hi all,

first post for the forum

116i Auto, just completed first 450 km, 8.5 L / 100 km till now.
avg. speed is around 33 km/h, all in heavy city traffic...

I think (hope ) it'll be decreased after first 1.500-2.000 km...

116d 5.0 l/100 km - overall

Best trip was 4.2 l/100 km (consumption wise )

The most noticeably is that it's almost impossible to get it over 6.5 l/100 km.

Today I got 5.0L/100km driving from Oslo Airport through the city, with an average speed of 95 km/h. That is quite fast by Norwegian standards. Previously I have only managed to get that good consumption figures at lower speeds.

118i Manual

Average about 43.4 mpg (mainly stop-start motorway traffic). With the roadworks on the m1 and m62 but with traffic moving I managed 54mpg in Eco-Pro on the way home tonight!

Most of my journeys are in comfort / Eco pro on the motorway and sport mode around town etc

I wonder why in South Africa our fuel consumption is higher than the rest of the world!
Are we just heavy footed petrol heads?

Really great fuel economy Ahh, just give me a couple of mins with your car and I'll get that fuel consumption above that 6.5l/100km

Nice, fuel economy. 95 km/h FAST??? Come to South Africa, that's what we do in our suburbs, lets not get started on our highways especially if you have a BMW we are known to get caught by the cops doing +200 km/h

That explains your consumption. Remember that the power needed to overcome aero drag is proportional to the velocity cubed, and the F20/F21 is about as aerodynamic as a brick.

I haven't even got my 118i M-Sport yet. I'm Only getting it in December but I've been driving around in a brand new F30 316i. Fuel consumption sitting at around 9.4l/100km heavy traffic city driving. Only done 2500km on it :P

M135i 8AT ca. 4K miles

Mix of A and B roads, little M'way 31.5 - 33 mpg. Pretty amazing really given that I never think about economy when driving.

The first 2K miles it was more like 27-28 mpg
