G30 520d

Recommended Posts

Yes, comparing my 2014 520d which averaged around 40mpg over 17k miles of ownership. 

 

My G30 averages around 45mpg over 7k Miles so far and this is improving

I’m under the impression that had I gone with a 530d I would be using less fuel based on my daily commute (40 mike round trip, 75% motorway, 25% town) but I couldn’t justify the £8k premium on the car. Bigger engine seems to have far less strain getting the car to the desired speed and from then on, it’s just poodles along

My 530 is averaging 47+ over 3500 miles 

Is that from the onboard computer or your own calcs? What sort of journeys are you making?

Thanks in advance.

I have g30 520d msport. After 7k, I'm getting c.42mpg. 95%+ in eco mode. Journeys tend to be short (1 mile), or longish (50m+). Generally cruise control at any speed above 50.

The car did, for a few trips, show 50-55mpg but doesn't seem to like the cold, so now currently 36-40mpg
