25.1 is my average MPG. I do quite a bit of city driving, in Comfort or Eco Pro mode. 2018 230i. If I take a road trip, I can get into the 30s.

How the heck did you get 451 miles on a tank? My last longish trip, I got about 450km before the light came on. Granted, I was going an average of 130kmh (80mph) with ac on and about 50km of it was city driving.

I was doing about 70-75mph with some bits over 80 mph all in eco pro while using cruise control off and on. It was probably 80% highway and 20% city during that tank.

That's pretty dang good. I drive in Sport 99% of the time, even on the long highway jaunts. Long trips I get about 35.4MPG and in town average stays around 26.7.

Long Trips: Socal to Norcal, I've gotten about 450 in comfort mostly cruise control with sporadic "spirited" driving

Regular/Daily: I'm getting like 380 again mostly comfort with occasional sports at 75% highway driving (comfort on highways)

I hardly ever go into eco-pro

TBH I average about 25MPG. I drive fairly spirited though.

I average about 10.5L per 100km (about 23mpg) on my 230. I do lots of city and traffic everyday and when not in traffic I drive often in sports mode. Still better than my about 15mpg on my FBO 335xi I had before ...

Highway driving on cruise/eco I can get above 34. I think many of the highest quotes on here are the instantaneous readings, not full trip numbers, but that's a guess - if you zero the computer while underway it gives much better #s. I try to remember to put eco on for long cruise controls, since you don't notice it - by my numbers it does actually ad about 5% beyond comfort. That said, I think I'm subconsciously blocking - I probably only remember this 1 in 5 trips on the highway. And I freak myself out when I stop for tolls or s/t and the engine shuts down (eco puts it into stop-engine mode). My car actually likes the mountain twisties almost as much, usually right around 30 (sport mode here).
