220i fuel consumption

220i fuel consumption
I stopped looking at the fuel consumption on my 330i long ago I think in the long run its beneficial to my health. Braynston - Rosebank - Sandton will kill a man slowly I'm sure of it lol. And on top of that I have two people rubbing it in daily :the wife (e87 120d sport pack) and the sister-in-law (e90 320d).

Seeing this post gives me hope, we are not alone in this world

15.8l/100km, yoh yoh yoh... my granny type driving is around 12l/100km.
I would probably also get 15 to 16l/100km if I drive it like I stole it

Ignore the fuel gauge in 330i, with that exhaust note, nobody would try being economical

Yup, my exhaust valve was disconnected a long time ago, also thinking about the de-cat....but I mostly get around 9.5L/100, and I don't drive with a size 4 foot....

Mine averages around the same between 9.5 and 10 and just to add its a 330i and you can probably agree on this one we drive like we stole them

RE: 220i fuel consumption
Still looking for 220i owners out there, please post ur figures, traffic/highway or mixed usage.
Still highly disappointed with mine even though driving with a very light foot, worst from any car I've ever owned.

My wife is easily cracking 9L/100 at the moment, much better than her old 120i...

RE: 220i fuel consumption
9l/100 is slightly better than my 12l/100, seeing that some of the guys that posted earlier see similar with 330s and 335s, still too high for a 1.9litre.

RE: 220i fuel consumption
Well I dont drive a 220i but can tell you my 330i is getting 8.4L/100km. This is over a full tank of fuel. Did it twice now.

You guys should be getting beter fuel consumption than me based on the car weighs less than mine and also it is turbo charged. Unless you drive like a hooligan then expect bad fuel consumption. If I floor mine, which I do now here in Albertinia I still get 9.0L/100km and then I go like a bat here on the N2. In Gauteng it would have sat on the 15L/100km mark Fencelook

Is your fuel consumption based on how much traffic and open road, that also makes a massive difference. In the city I get 9L/100km here in WC, but in gauteng it would be 12L/100km due to all the stops, traffic, passing cars etc. On the open road here in WC I now get 8L/100km where in Gauteng I was getting 9L/100km, so I also think it might be based on the location where you are.

Anyway, thought I would share my fuel consumption for comparison Tiptoe

Current: 2005 E90 330i manual - Black Sapphire Metallic (475)

My wife gets 16 l/100km with my 335i to work and back. She accelerates all the way and brakes last minute for a robot. Same trip same time of morning (R55) I do 11 l/100km.

The trick with turbo cars is to try use as little turbo as possible in the first 3 gears. Maybe try eco pro and drive a bit slower.

I told my wife stop complaining about fuel consumption if you are not willing to change your driving style Crazylaugh

I have the EXACT same problem with my wife and her driving style on the 120D!!

RE: 220i fuel consumption
The #20d's seem to cover a whole lot more mileage on a full tank, from owners Ive spoken to its more than 1000kms to a tank so much closer to BMWs claimed consumption than the F22 petrol variants.

Dont drive mine hard, but yeah your 330I consumption looks better than my light footed driving on the 220I

RE: 220i fuel consumption
So I've come across another bmw owner who had fuel consumption issues with a new 320i, bmw had to change the engine and he was forced to get rid of it quickly. That was drastic, but makes one wonder whether bmw knows about their *20i's fuel consumption thats very far off their claimed figures and just brushing it unnoticed by most consumers.
