I've been getting only 15MPG on my 1985 735i in normal driving around town. This is just my first car, so I dont really know how many MPG I'm supposed to be averaging. I'm asking everyone to check their OBC and see how much gas they comsume. It might give us an idea of how much an average E23 consumes. PLEASE POST RESULT. Thank you

Thank you<p></i><p>Around town, I get about 17 in my '85 735iA. I don't really drive with fuel economy in mind, I know that I could do better mileage-wise. I guess I can't really complain since this is hardly an "economy-minded car."

I got about 16-17 city MPG with my old '80 733 stick 4 -speed<br>'85 735i with the ZF -auto got slightly less<br>But it was much better on the highway, around 26 to 28 if I was very light on the accelerator. <br>Mostly 24-26 highway MPG though<p>Keep the valves set right, and clean the air filter by shaking the loose dust off of it often. <br>Also keep the oil as clean as possible.<br>Tire pressure, 32psi front and rear really helps too.

84 733i, auto, 136K; I average 19.5 around Dallas. I step into it only to impress the wife (300SD), or to get up to speed with traffic.<p>George III
