BMW's figures are as follows, with the automatic transmission figures in parenthesis:

City: 12.2 (13.5) l/100km
Highway: 6.9 (7.6) l/100km

Using your nomenclature, this would be:

City: 164 (148) km/20l
Highway: 290 (263) km/20l

Okay this does not sound right....you live in Jordan and the gas prices are high????!!!!! Why dont you take a shovel and dig in your back yard.....voila....you have your own gas supplu for life!.....just kiddin bro....the gas consumption sucks on bimmers especially the older ones so there is basically nuthing you can do to change that except replace the 3 engine with a toyota prius maybe??? LOl

01 325 xi E46 Bimmer Titanium.....FAST
99 600cc Suzuki GSX-R Blue..........FASTER
