What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the BMW 5-Series

BMW 5-Series Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2010 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
The turbo allows the ability to extract very excellent fuel economy if driven conservatively, and yet deliver exceptional power when needed (or just desired). see full BMW 5-Series review
2008 4dr Sedan 230-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I drive 500+ highway miles weekly. I needed a comforable ride with good fuel economy. I am averaging 30 mpg on the highway at 70+ MPH in Florida see full BMW 5-Series review
2007 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
21 mpg mixed city and highway, very good for car this size see full BMW 5-Series review

2006 4dr Sedan 255-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
At this moment the computer shows 27.6 mpg for combo city/freeway/around town driving. True, it uses premium but that is excellent for a car this size and performance.[mpg is without using A/C] see full BMW 5-Series review
2006 4dr Wagon 255-horsepower 3.0L I6

2004 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
28 mpg highway - 20 mpg city. see full BMW 5-Series review
2004 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed manual RWD
Averaging 25mpg combined and 30mpg expressway...not too shabby for full-size luxury vehicle. see full BMW 5-Series review
2003 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Excellent fuel mileage on the highway. I can average 32MPG driving at 65 MPH. Problem is... tough to keep it at 65. 75-80 is like driving 55 in most other vehicles. see full BMW 5-Series review

Seems to guzzle gas in stop-and-go regime, even if I watch the consumption report as I drive. see full BMW 5-Series review
2002 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
5 Series was terrific car but very poor on gas and used premium fuel. We knew about the mileage when purchased but this was one of the factors making us switch as we have 2 new drivers that would have kept this car driving more hours at a higher cost. see full BMW 5-Series review
