Even if you are driving very aggressively, I think that is significantly low. Obvious check would be O2 sensor (mixture) or general tune up issues.

I think it warrants being checked, especially with recent gas prices. I'd think a performace increase would also be noticed with a remedy.

94 540i with reasonable gas milage

I have a 95 525i and I'm concerned about the mileage I'm getting. Freeway driving gets me about 20mpg, but city gets me about 15mpg. I just got the car about 3 months ago and it has 102,000 miles. does that mileage seem right?
