6.0mpg??

Hey everyone, I was messing around with the M5 the other day and found that I am only getting 6 miles per gallon... I thought the computer doesn’t allow it to display below 7. Thoughts?

Are you having increased battery discharge? Mine shows lower numbers if the battery hasn't been charged and something resets because of it

Get a trickle charger and keep your battery operation to keep your MPG numbers

Nope. It doesn’t show any increased discharged or nothing of that sort. And I always keep cars on trickle chargers when they sit. So yea it is always on charge
