So I've had a automatic '96 325i for a bout a year now and i've always thought my milage was average, 16-18 mpg. I've never really thought it was good but I thought the low mileage came with BMW power. But I was talking to my friend and he says that he gets around 24 mpg. His lowest is 21. Is there anyway you guys recommend to raise mileage, maybe of device of some sort. Thanks
Here are some suggestions:
Make sure the tires are properly inflated,
Reduce weight as much as possible (remove junk from trunk)
Make sure air filter and fuel filter have been changed at proper intervals
Tune up (new spark plugs, if necessary, new wires/coils)
Lastly, take it easy, aggressive driving = poor gas mileage.
