Tank on EmptyTank on Empty

Question For All Bmw Owners

July 14, 2008 about BMW 3-Series

I drive a 1998 323 IC, My question is do you get about twice the millage on the first half of your tank according to your gage? I know it is just designed for a guide but mine is the worst of any car I have ever owned. I also would like to hear what kind of true gas millage that you get, I get between 20 to 26 miles per gallon. The higher MPG is when I short shift (hard to do in a BMW as they like to live in a higher rev range) but it makes as much as 5 MPG difference.

To answer the question about the gauge. All the cars i have ever driven have a gauge that gos up to half full with about 1/4 of a tank of gas in. I think this is a deliberate design feature as most people never fill the car up fully. It gives you greater accuracy on the fuel gauge when the car is getting close to empty. You will probably find that when you fill it right up the gauge will read full for 100 miles before it starts dropping as well.

I have a 2000 323ci and on european petrol I get approximately 32mpg around town and 40mpg on the motorway, but I do drive quite economically, sad I know! If I put my foot down the mpg can drop by 5 or 10 mpg. I normally get around 400 miles out of a tank. My fuel warning light comes on with an 1/8 of a tank left and I have often taken it to when the computer reads 0 miles left, even once carried on for 5 miles further before I filled up.

GlennMay 3, 2012I've read about this, and seen this done exactly like in the video. Unfortunately, I've tried this mohted with my E46 ('99) and my E39 ('97) multiple times and have never been able to make it work.I'm going to admit to user error' although for the life of me I can't figure out why it would be. The process is so simple.It's frustrating. Anyone else have problems with this mohted?Cheers Glenn

Brian, a couple of tnghis here...First, thank you! You are one of the five people I spend most of my time with. I choose to have morning inspiration monday to friday and on those morning I watch a PN episode and read the corresponding note. That practice has had wonderful effects on my clarity and intentions and has allowed for amazing conversation starters with others. This comment is general in nature, but the whiteboard connected me to you in another profound way (I do this too, its awesome!). My crutch is sports illustrated/cnn website and I like the honoring that with a box, but consciously owning each time I go check scores.Second, I love what you are doing, very inspirational. I feel the ripple and I am proud to say I try to pass along the wisdom and information about the website every chance I get. Seeing your humanness, hearing about your paths' choices and challenges has been extremely empowering for me.Third, and here is the question, could you tell me more about what Holosync has done for you and why you recommend it? I am intrigued and have tried the demo CD, but do not have anyone else in my life currently practicing meditation using a CD. It is a bit pricey for me just to try it out without some more knowledge and insight from someone I "know." Thank you in advance for any assistance.Thanks again Brian, I wish you joy and prosperity in your marriage and life. Thank you for the inspiration and following your heart path, B-rad
