At first glance, that would def seem too much. But I never really experimented with the flowrate of the AC compressor on, fan, blower, etc. when the engine is under any load.

Doing some maths, the 7.28g/s would suggest idling at about 1200 rpms, but I didn't see anywhere in the OP that he reported the idle speed with that flow rate as it could've been reported on a cold engine with startup...I dunno. I guess I'd have to assume the idle was at 750 rpms re-reading that post.

The 4.48g/s suggest idle of around 750 rpms. That seems perfect, but a good self check would be to take it to several rpm points like 1500, 2000, etc, and determine if the reporting follows a linear fashion.

I reinstalled the original BMW Siemens MAF and the SES light has not returned in over 1000 miles of driving. I’ll be returning the VDO unit to FCP.

Thumbs up fixed

2004/11 BMW X5 e53 3.0L M54:
Ongoing symptoms: No performance/drivability issues. Intermittent SES / CEL with OBD codes P1092 & P1093 and INPA code 235 (lambda sensors).

Verified no vac or compression leaks (smoked engine; cylinders leak check; cylinders compression check; radiator pressure check; fuel pump & brake booster leak checks)

Replaced (MAF; plugs; all four O2 sensors; plugs; hoses; gaskets)

Fix that worked...switched fuel to non-ethanol type. Suspect the higher heat from more volatile ethanol throws sensors off just enough.
Verified this works/cures issue by alternating fuel types. As soon as I start using normal ethanol fuel, the codes return. When I start adding VP racing fuel to the tank, the codes disappear. This is totally f$@ked, as such fuels are not permitted on the road anymore due to politically correct fuel regulations.
