Pretty simple, reset your odometer after you fill up your tank all the way. Next time you get gas, fill the tank all the way up again. Check the gas for how many gallons you took and divide that by the amount of miles you went, then remember to reset the odomet again!

: : As the gas prices rocket towards $2/gal (I love OPEC!!!), I am lead to muse about my driving habits, and gas mileage. I drive semi-aggressively, and drive hard some of the time. My car usually turns out 15-16 mpg. Is that about right for the 535i? Any other experience?
