  7. 325i 2.5 ltr oil consumption

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I have a 325i 2.5ltr 2006 with 94k miles, does anyone else's engine use a fair bit oil? No leaks that I can find and no smoke when either started or accelerating hard so doesn't seem to be burning oil. I estimate about 1 ltr every 1 to 1.5 thousand miles? Is this right as I have read some people...
  8. N43 320i Fuel Consumption

    BMW 3 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 3 Series
    I'm having some problems with fuel consumption on my 320i. I'm only getting 23-26mpg on a mix of driving. I used to achieve and average of around 30-33mpg. There are no codes stored in the ecu and the generally car drives fine. Seems to me like it could be a sensor problem? I've swapped the...

    I have a 328i F30 with N20 engine - 14 plate. Bought it in Aug'17 with 55k miles on clock, I've now done just short of 60K miles. Not had any issues with it until Apr '18 when it went into limp mode after going round a sharp up-hill bend. Stopped the car, restarted, drivetrain warning cleared...
  10. N42B18 E46 316i - High Oil Consumption

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I have all the paperwork for the previous owner having had the timing chain done with all the upgraded bits so no worries there one would think. However, oil consumption has varied wildly. Recently it has been appalling. It's not burning any but the N42 splash it all over effect has been making...
  11. [2005 325i] Alarmingly large oil consumption before and after engine swap

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    I bought my e46 about a year ago on 120k (ish) miles. Ever since I bought her shes been guzzling oil. Probably somewhere along the lines of a litre every 200 miles. She was running pretty sweet until one day I was driving on the dualy and the coolant light came on and the car lost a big chunk of...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    Had 5 series for years, got latest in October last year, a 520d with 150k miles on the clock. Went as expected, 55 - 58 mpg on motorway and 36mpg on commute. Then noticed in December through to March fuel consumption dropped to 26 on commute and 44 on motorway and quite powerless. Now that it's...

    Hi all, new to the forums so hello everyone 👋. I’ve literally just purchased my 2010 F07 530d GT and I’m abit surprised at the OBC Fuel Consumption readout, it says I’m averaging in the low 20’s which is not even close to what BMW say it’s capable of, I know it won’t be hitting BMW’S figures but...

  15. 325Ci appalling fuel consumption

    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46
    So I've had my 325Ci coupe a month or something now and the fuel consumption is freaking terrible. I mean, it makes a lovely sound this car but the performance doesn't come with it and the fuel consumption is dire. I'm finding it hard to find reasons to keep this car. It's a 2003 325ci auto...
  16. 2006 E83 X3 SE Diesel Estate - 3FF0, huge fuel consumption, random lack of throttle response.

    General BMW Discussions
    When started from cold it misfires for a minute or so until warm. When driving the throttle will suddenly become inactive. The car will drive at around 2000 RPM, no more. It will not accelerate even if the accelerator is floored. This might last a second or several minutes. It is entirely random...

    Although this is a relatively rare car, I've been a bit disappointed with the fuel consumption. Lucky if we get high twenties. Has anybody else out there got one? What do you get?
