Fuel consumption.

Quick question: does the fuel consumption change after the 2000kms service?

Well your driving style does that impacts fuel consumption. I've been getting about 200miles/322km per tank.

Sure that's obvious, but did you notice any changes after the first service or is it pretty much the same before and after?

I am sure the fuel mileage and overall performance will improve as the engine loosens up a bit but I doubt they do anything during that first service that would improve MPG

So, about 15 or 16l/100kms (16mpg)? Pretty far from the official fuel consumption figures, which is expectable. I'm going around mostly at low road speeds, varying the engine speed (for the break-in), and doing roughly that as well.

The change in engine and differential oils' viscosity could potentially have some impact.

Holy crap 200 miles a tank is horrible, my E46 ZHP gets 350 and that's only 22 mpg average.

What size is the gas tank?

But getting 15-16l/100km is double what BMW says. The main cause of that has to be aggressive driving style/city driving. I got an average of 11l/100km on my test drive which is similar to what i get with my 911 c2s

getting around 14 L/100, i forgot to mention that this has been mostly stop and go commuting to work so that certainly doesnt help, i think on a long trip with hwy i could get under 11 L/100

ive been meaning to test and see how much better mileage i can get if i stay in comfort mode and drive normally but i just cant do it, i believe this car will get advertised mileage if you can drive this way

I think it should be possible to get close to the advertised figures If you tried, but it's a sporty car so why would you

My friend got an average of 11l/100km on his M2 after some city driving and highway driving on cruise control at 140km/h

Is there a way to get the consumption in the instrument cluster or it is only available via iDrive?

My old 330Ci also got 22mpg, my 135is, 21mpg. So far the M2 is running 18-19mpg. But it is still breaking in....as am I.

Only have 200+ miles but looks like the frequency that I visit the gas station will be the same for the M2 as it is for the X5.

X5: 14-15 MPG / 22+ gal tank
M2: 17+ (so far) / 13.7 gal tank
