    Got over 40mpg out of the 330 this weekend

    Very impressed with the car atm tbh - went down to Devon from London about 165 miles door to door and averaged 40.3mpg.
    It was at 24 when I got out of London this was door to door. I didn't totally granny it either cruise set a 65.
    Just no traffic and no braking needed just filled up again average for the tank was 36 after I hammerd it back and have done two days town driving.
    Same journey last year I did 44mpg in a diesel Vauxhall Astra...



    Also gave it a quick clean
    Came up proper shiny

    My Astra van I had would also do about 65 even if you drive it like you had stole it
    But 40 out of a 330 is very good as Seb said its the derv wheels

    Best I've had is 39mpg, I just couldn't break the 40!

    iirc @dailydoggy and @Ferret have both achieved 40mpg which goes to show in the right conditions the 330i can be a pretty frugal 6pot
