Not guilty your honour! :nono:hal2000 said:calll me crazy but i suspect that the average M5 board member might be how should i put it.. a bit spiritied in their driving style.
Anyone want to admit they are the "Driving miss daisy" type?
It would be nice to know before we pick up the car as gas price as exceeded $3/gallon for super unleaded. My current 545i with SMG gives me 22mpg(US) in the city and 31mpg (US) on the Highway. That is awsome mileage....AbruzziBoy said:I've been reading the great PDF download of the owners manual that was uploaded here and saw that average fuel consumption was stated at around 15-16 pmg. Other members have stated they are getting more like 11-12 mpg. Any imput?
Anyone buying at $90k car will not care about fuel efficiency but being cheap is a task I take seriously...:hihi:vndkshn said:LOL... everytime I hear someone in the States complain about fuel prices I think about what they are paying overseas. The very thought makes me stop complaining immediately.
I'm not singling you out or anything, so please don't take it wrong, I just always keep it in mind before I complain that we have it pretty good in the area of gas prices. Gas prices are on my mind as well, but from a different aspect.M5_2010 said:Anyone buying at $90k car will not care about fuel efficiency but being cheap is a task I take seriously...:hihi:
P.S. Wait till you get your bill for home heating this year.....:sad1:

There isn't any point comparing fuel prices to other countries worldwide.vndkshn said:LOL... everytime I hear someone in the States complain about fuel prices I think about what they are paying overseas. The very thought makes me stop complaining immediately.
...where you won't believe your air conditioning bills! :hihi:vndkshn said:...As for home heating, no kidding, it has gotten bad already. My gas bills for SUMMER are worse than my winter bills from a couple of years ago. I am so glad I am moving to Texas...
I think you need to rethink that logic... fill 2 cars? What, am I suddenly going to drive twice as much? Or I am going to drive 100 yards down the road in one car, then run back and get in the other? I have a half a dozen cars now... the cars I didn't drive to work this morning.. guess what their fuel consumption was.... Their tanks are full, I haven't filled one of them in over a month, because it hasn't been driven.EBuyuk said:So inorder to save money on gasoline you want to buy a new car? what about the cost of the car keep in mind now you have to fill 2 cars :1:
Sure there is a point... while they have doubled here in the States.. how much have they gone up in other countries? So, my point.. its all relative and we shouldn't complain that much... it could be worse.toys r' us said:There isn't any point comparing fuel prices to other countries worldwide.
Who wouldn't be pissed about fuel prices doubling in a little more than a year, no matter what country you're living in?
Yeah, that is a bit of a concern, but I get killed here, so I don't think it will be that much worse. It gets just as hot (and more humid) here.rsteele said:...where you won't believe your air conditioning bills!
