2015 BMW M235i: Road Trips Help Fuel Economy
by Mike Schmidt, Vehicle Testing Manager on April 13, 2016
Our time with the 2015 BMW M235i convertible is coming to an end soon. But until March it was without many long distance road trips. That was about the time Cameron came up with an idea to drive the BMW to Zion National Park in Utah, an 870 mile round-trip. In the process he broke multiple existing fuel economy records.
Cameron gets credit for setting the best fill mpg (previously 29.7 mpg), the best range (previously 331.9 miles) and lifting the overall fuel economy (previously 20.9 mpg). And he contributed more than anyone else to the 1,882 miles added to the BMW this month.
See the recap of his efforts below.
Worst Fill MPG: 12.5
Best Fill MPG: 31.0
Average Lifetime MPG: 21.5
EPA MPG Rating: 25 Combined (21 City/ 32 Highway)
Best Range: 352.1 miles
Current Odometer: 17,167 miles
