After completing the Euro road trip with MTM. Me and Mozza filled up at the same time, usually I used 3 or 4 Euro more than Mozza (Not bad for a old girl) and in fact on one occasion I used 3 or 4 Euro less than Mozza, but I do have a bit of a heavy foot.
I think Mozza reckoned he was averaging around 31 MPG so mine probably came in at around 29-30 mpg.
Considering that we were not hanging about on the motorways (85-90 mph) and Autobahns (90-140mph) and we gave it a bit of stick around the Stelvio Pass, I am chuffed with my old girl.
123 Gallons used (approximately), around £740, But worth Every Penny...

I found that my MPG when I took my Z3 to France the other week was a lot better than I usually get here in the UK.
Probably because the roads are a lot less crowded and the standard of driving seems better meaning a lot less braking.
