I'm getting between 19 and 22 mpg with my 35i DCT. That's with being in sport or sport+ mode maybe half the time.

Anyone who's getting more than 25mpg with a 35i DCT is driving like an old lady going to church on Sunday

I get 23-30 mpg on the highway driving my 35i DCT between 50 mph - 80 mph while in manual gear and Sport/Sport+ mode , switching back and forth between 4th - 7th gear, depending on the situation. 4th gear is always used to pass old ladies or old men wearing hats.

Garage List
3.0 Steptronic/Eisenmann Race Exhaust

23,000 km/15,000 miles

9.2 liters/100KM - 25.5 MPG

50% City/ 50% Autobahn [mix of 50% at 120 KPH/75MPH, 50% and 200 KPH/125 MPH, usually drive in SPORT mode, manually shifting, was in the upper 8 liter range, but that was back in November, which was about the last time we had above freezing temps until this week.

All - Just curious, given our international membership - are you using US or Imperial gallons, the difference when converting l/100km to gallons varies by about 5MPG around the 9 l/100km figure.

I use miles per gallon (Imperial) not US. So does the UK. The US gal is 83.3% of an Imperial gallon.

I never liked using the litres per 100km ratio that we are supposed to use in Canada

i didn't know about the difference in Europe and the US so, if you're getting 30 imperial gallons that's like us getting 25 US gallons, roughly 84% of whatever the imperial gallons quote is. that still makes me a 'lead foot'.

1 gallon (US) = 0.8326742 gallon (Imperial)

How you people manage to get >30mpg?
