30 mpg on the highway at 70mph is just fine for a 3500 pound car. see full BMW 3-Series review
2008 2dr Hardtop conv. turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Very good fuel economy on highway if you allow cruise control to manage speed - 26-29 mpg. In town it drops to 19-21 mpg and if you play boy racer then it'll drop to the 15 mpg area. see full BMW 3-Series review

Averaging 21 MPG is 70% city/30% freeway driving. On a long road trip I average 29 MPG (includes a few mountain passes and 80 MPH average speed.) see full BMW 3-Series review
2007 4dr Sedan turbocharged 300hp 3.0L I6

2007 BMW 3-Series Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2008 4dr Wagon 230-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Less than the A3. Though the base 328i has a larger 6 cylinder engine while the A3 is a 4 cylinder turbo. 328i is also larger and heavier. It is more closer toa wagon while the A3 is closer to a hatchback. see full BMW 3-Series review

Need to burn a lot of dinosaurs if you have a lead foot like me. see full BMW 3-Series review
2008 4dr Sedan 230-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
I average 20-22 mpg. getting expensive to run the car. I wish it was in the mid 20s, but 6 cyl and awd I guess it could be worse. and its not direct injection engine (reminds me to buy the injector cleaner stuff!) see full BMW 3-Series review

2008 2dr Coupe 414-horsepower 4.0L V8
6-speed manual RWD
While you might say 'why bitch if you can afford the car?' the mpg can be SHOCKINGLY bad. I knew what I was getting into, and yes, I can afford it, but wow. My True Delta average is 16.5mpg but that can dip into the 12's bumper to bum see full BMW 3-Series review

The 328 coupe has mediocre fuel economy, even when driven very lightly - I get 32mpg in freeway driving. Having said that, the 335 has a spectacular engine which consumes about the same amount of fule but delivers 300hp. see full BMW 3-Series review

6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
I typically use mid-grade fuel even though premium is recommended. I've not seen a problem because of my altitude, but less that 15 MPG is average except on the road. Most trips are through the mountains which also decreases the fuel mileage d/t hills see full BMW 3-Series review
2006 4dr Sedan 215-horsepower 3.0L I6
6-speed shiftable automatic RWD
Wish it could get closer to 35 mpg with price of gas. Averaging consistently between 24-27 mpg with an even mixture of highway/city. see full BMW 3-Series review
