2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Fuel Economy Update for January
February 6, 2015
During the month of January we put 4,350 miles on our 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo. We averaged 26.3 mpg for the month on 165.5 gallons of mostly 91 (but a few fill-ups of 93, when out of state) octane fuel, helping the car's lifetime fuel economy average rise from 23.1 mpg to 23.7.
That high (for us) monthly average was aided by a road trip to Austin, Texas and back. Look for more on that soon. The 26.3 mpg average for the month means the Gran Turismo achieved the EPA's estimated combined average of 26 mpg for the 328i xDrive, but of course there were considerable highway miles along the way.
Our worst tank for the month was 18.6 mpg, our best was 32.7 (during that Texas road trip) and our best range for the month was 448.3 (also during the road trip).
Worst Fill MPG: 14.9
Best Fill MPG: 33.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 23.7
EPA MPG Rating: 26 Combined (22 City/33 Highway)
Best Range: 497.1
Current Odometer: 24,244
