I have recently bought a Z3 1.9Auto 98(S) with only 27000 miles on the clock. I am baffled as to why I am only getting approx 16mpg. I took it to Fairbairns in Glasgow who can't find anything wrong with it after a diagnostics check. Any ideas would be appreciated. ghead

Cheers,
John

You may not get any more, no matter what you do. I would reccomend looking into the condition of your fuel injectors...they can rob you of a few mpg's
