2008 BMW X5 4.8i: Running the Mileage Numbers
May 12, 2008
Shocker of the weekend - the X5 4.8i is not for the slight of wallet. The 200-mile round trip to mom's house on Sunday required 12.5 gallons of gas. That's 16mpg for the mathematically challenged. Not terrible for a 5,333 pound vehicle driven with little regard for mileage, but given its need for premium fuel, it was a $50 trip...
