MPG

Recommended Posts

Hi I have just taken delivery of a 530E and trying to understand all the various technology. One thing I am struggling with is the MPG reading, when I check the trip computer details it is constantly stuck at 90MPG, though as I have only done 12 miles in petrol and 140 in electric.  Any ideas how I get a true reading?

Hi and congrats.

The highest MPG that is shown is 90.

If it's "stuck" there,then that's good news, as it means your MPG hasn't dropped below 90.

When you use enough petrol, then you will see it reducing.

If you have the connected app on your phone, it will give you the actual figure. No idea why BMW couldn't tweak their software to show above 90 on the hybrids.
