like many other SUV it consume more fuel, but I know the EPA before buying the X5. see full BMW X5 review
2008 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 3.0L I6

poor compared to diesel see full BMW X5 review
2006 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
The 3.0L i6 is rather underpowered, and it's hard for me to squeeze even 22 mpg out of my X5. Most of the time, I get close to 20. Most V8 X5s from this generation get 16-18 mpg. see full BMW X5 review
2004 4dr SUV 225-horsepower 3.0L I6

I get a consistant 16.6mpg. Mostly in town driving. see full BMW X5 review

2002 4dr SUV 282-horsepower 4.4L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic AWD
It gets about 16 mpg in town and about 19-20 on the highway. For the amount of performance I should not complain but I would love a SUV that got about 30 see full BMW X5 review
