Morning everyone,
Ive just hit 4000 miles in my October 2018 M40i, the top score was 35 mpg back in Nov, my average is about 27 mpg.
I also tow a caravan of around 1500kg, I thought this is going to be awful, you know about 10 mpg, however I've driven about 1200 miles and the average is 20 mpg. Which is better than my sons average in his Range Rover Vogue.

I only got 28 mpg in my diesel Volvo and that was really boring.

I have no idea about the mpg values but I'm averaging 12.2l/100km since I got my m40i about 10 months ago. I drive a lot of very heavy city driving where I get on average 15l/100km.

I'm currently trying to have an experiment and see how much the different driving modes affect. So far it honeslty doesn't seem to make a huge difference. What does make a big difference though is how often you floor it.

Intentionally didn't boot it, had it in comfort mode and drove the car sensibly! Observed a steady 60-70mph on the motorway. The mpg seems to be improving with age

My lifetime average is 24 MPG after 7700 miles.

PS: I had to remind myself the difference between US mpg and UK mpg. This might be a good fresher for others as well:

still, 40mpg UK is equivalent to 33mpg US, which is quite darn impressive...

I'm averaging 21 mpg on first 3,000 miles...

I get about 24 daily driving in LA. 27/28 when I drive up to SF. Surprisingly on the EPA mark. Every other car I owned/own is either way over or way below.

I track mileage, etc. fanatically ... since delivery on Feb 26th, I've covered 3116 miles (17 fill-ups). Best mileage (highway) was 28.4 mpg. My last tank full - all in and around town was 18.3, and my combined average mileage is 21.8.
