my dads e46 has always been about 2mpg off, so it read 25mpg where as he was only getting 23mpg in his 323. mine reads about 21.5, but i havent checked the accuracy on it.

city - 23 - 26 mpg (depends if I use AC or not)
Highway - ~30 mpg

divide # of miles traveled by # of gallons filled = true mpg

Is it 300 at completely empty, or 300 at 3/4 empty?

my average is about 24.6, this is both city and highway driving combined.

highway, i usually get around 32 mpg. i've gone a little over 400 miles on one tank a few times.

you cant rely on just looking at the gauge when you are crusing. you need to think about how much gas is burning when you s tart from zero, and other times of acceleration. plus hills

Ok, I checked my milage on the '98 328i.

*In the city driving normal (not racing, but not grandma) about: 23.3MPG

*In the city driving like grandma about: 27.9MPG

*Highway normal guess about: 31.2MPG

*Grandma Highway (cruise set at 75MPH, and driving in flat texas) about: 32+MPG
(haven't finished tank yet, but around 469 and climbing miles per tank)

I have to drive 90 miles to work everyday, so I am into saving fuel! If I have to get around someone slow on two lane Hwy 6, well MPG suffers!
