    While driving back along the M40 last night in my E63 i spent sixty miles driving at a nice steady 60-70mph. Managed almost 30mpg over the journey - the best consumption figure ive had with this car. Stopped at a services to fill up and took a pic of the special moment!

    I'm not sure whether this is an achievement or a mark of shame driving a car like this like an old codger. I did get overtaken by a Polo a one point but at least it does show you can get a reasonable MPG figure if you take it easy.

    Snails and worms as well I imagine :D

    the 5.5 Bi-Turbo does even better economy - I had just over 31 MPG once! :eek:

    I dare say over twice as many miles at the same speed i may have managed over 30mpg but i'd have probably fallen asleep long before then!
