Ok so I still have about another 600 miles to go before my car is broken in. I know normally the gas mileage will get better once it's broken in more. But so far the few times I've filled it up I've never gotten more than about 200mi out of a tank before the low fuel light comes on. Best average so far has been 19.6mpg with a mix of highway and city driving. Just wondering (other than highway driving) is this about the average best I can expect out of this car. Obviously I didn't buy it because its great on gas but I thought it might be just a bit higher. Or do we just have very small gas tanks relative to engine size lol.
BTW specs are 2013 135i 6speed manual 540 miles on the clock with temps ranging from 40s to the 60s throughout the day.
