I hear you brother! Unless I'm headed out of town I try to keep the weight down in the M5 and keep the tank just over half full. I have on numerous occasions stopped 2x at the same Shell station the very same day with the same attendant working. Given their confused expression, I always wondered what goes through their minds while attempting to grasp how I ran through $40+ of gas in just a couple of hours LOL. On another note my beast averages 12.6 to 13.4 mpg with mixed driving.

Hypermiling....

At brisk highway speeds but steady cruise control I find gas mileage in the 20-21 mpg for the M5.
Half that in city.

I think I'm averaging around 11.5 mpg in San Francisco, Beast is always thirsty...my little dirty secret since my girlfriend is such a eco friendly girl. When we go on longer roadtrips, I sneak in refuel excuses to grab a drink and since I'm here...I'll top off the tank...more like fill up the tank

My previous beast was an E39 M5. I drive all my cars hard, very hard.

On my M6, I average 8.2 mpg. But the smile the V10 puts on my face is priceless.

Holy crap! You must drive the devil out of your cars as you said.

I've never seen mileage that low in the 8 years I've owned my E39 M5 except for track days at VIR in the old days. I just looked at my OBC display yesterday as I've not reset one of the mpg counters in ages, and it shows 18.1 mpg. Granted I don't ever drive in stop and go city traffic or anything. On highway trips running 75mph on cruise control, the E39 M5 returns right at 25mpg or a tad more.
