Hi:
What has to be changed to address the high fuel consumption in a e63 m6.
I checked o2 ,,mafs, throttle actuator through Ista and all good ,
Car has 39000 miles.
I get 19.7 mpg in city is that normal
I do not drive car in highways cos it is a weekend car.
I drive 4 times a month.
Or I am imagining it is not normal .
Is 19.7 mpg in city acceptable.

Thank you.

It is my mistake,,I was reading in L/100km.
Anyhow I switched it to mpg (USA) and it read 11.9 mpg
And tried mpg (uk) and it read 14.1 mpg

So in reality’s it is 11.9 mpg (USA)

Thank you.

11ish is normal for city, when I’m not giving it the beans.

I get 8L per 100kms on the highway
That’s about 29mpg

In the city I’m at 12-14L per 100kms
That’s about 19-16.8mpg

Although I’m not including what it reads when you idle

How?
Something wrong here.
Maybe the opposite.

Maybe
My catalytic adaptations in bank 2 are reading at 1.14
Not sure why but I’m guessing it’s going to use more fuel

Dude, 11 mpg is normal. I get about 6 mpg when I'm on it. Who cares? You didn't buy V10 to save on gas did you?
Cause if you did, you bought the wrong car man....
