    Hi
    Please help me with this
    my cars MPG is shocking
    driving the car like my grandad would and im getting 16.4 MPG as an average
    E36 328i Manual 1996

    My Nissan 300ZX TT Heavy Footed it did Near that lol

    With the ZX i Reset the ECU via Battery Disc for an hour and after 50 miles it so much improved as it learnt to my driving

    Are The BMW ECU's similar as when i drop the boot the bar showing mpg at the bottom dissapears of the speedo out of the window and into the next car lol

    Help would be apreciated as in the MPG section here i see some members combined been closer to 25 with a heavy foot which i would be more than happy with

    Cheers

    The adaptations are reset when disconnected for so long.

    But, with a MPG figure like that, i'd be looking else where as that is shocking.

    How are you getting that figure BTW ?

    Hi
    im getting the figures after i reset the onboard comp it and pressed mpg lol
    I did two miles and the range dropped from 85 miles to 73 (gentle changes and low revs)

    it was fine before my clutch went i had new clutch fitted with slave cylinder and now she flies again but i got better mpg when the clutch was slipping ???

    ill look into fault codes asap i have monday off work,

    i was hoping it could just be ecu used to the slipping clutch and dumping too much fuel into engine

    im not mechanical minded at all so sorry if im like 100 miles from the mark

    Could this be the culprit i had completly stripped everything from the airbox to engine and test all pipes for leaks etc altho i didnt bother with this one as i thought it was fairly obv lol

    But could this be the sole blame for s*#t MPG ???
