I just got a 98 e46 323i with 48K km milage.
The car is in very good condition for it's year but he fuel consumption is very high.
60 Liter can only run for 370km !
Every time I accelerate, the fuel consumption garage flicks to 20L per 1000km.
But the rev does go up too much.
While I stop the car, some smell of fuel coming out under the bonnet.
Can anyone gives me some idea, what can goes wrong.
Since I just brought this car two weeks ago, most of the time i drive it very gingerly.
I guess it won't be cheap to fix if something wrong with fuelling system.
I'm going to a garage this Saturday.
Some sleepless nights ahead!
That`s right! I also get around 17 liters/100km,because I drive mostly in the city perimeters (3km to work and 3km back from work).On highway ,when I drive no more than 110km/h ,I get much below 8 liters/100km. so I think it is normal for these cars to be in that bracket of fuel consumption.
