..engine to choose.

I want a mix of power and performance, so which Engine is best?

I'm guessing M3's need their own gas station to tow behind?
328 Not too far behind - how many MPG combined usage?
325 ??
323 ??
320 ??
318is ??
318 - no too slow

Anyone help? I just dont want the huge fuel bills I have now with my Supra 3.0 . Im getting about 18 now, so anything post 24 MPG would be good.
