the dumb question?

So what are you guys getting for gas milage in your X-M? please state which vehicle.
Highway?
City?
Combined and percentages?

And, to answer the expected flames, no it does not matter no this vehicle is not bought for gas savings. But I still want to know. real world mpg is always different. Im just wondering if people are getting better then what I get in my Truck and how it compares to what I got in my 4.8's.
Thx

I only have 750 miles so far. Average 13 mainly city with a little on congested highway. Always in manual mode and usually rev it to 3.5-4k in anything past first gear.

I was going to ask the same question.

I'm not an ///M owner but I'm sucking fuel like crazy with the 50i X6 with performance package. 100 miles after fill up, I'm at 1/2 tank.

My OBC is down to 14.3 from the 17.5 I averaged driving home from SC. I should reset the computer to see what I'm really getting, there's no way it's 14.3. I was getting high 13s with the 4.8i E70.

Ive got 1000 miles and I've seen about 13 mpg in mostly city driving and stop and go. When highway its up in the 17's. Been keeping out of the revs because of breakin for the most part but everyday I step into it a little. My E70 4.8 got about 14 for the same type of driving with 20.5 in freeway driving.

More importantly, how many miles do you go between fill ups?
Often I'd rather get a little worse gas mileage but more miles between stops.
Wish the X5M had a 26 gallon tank like the Cayenne.
