    Default What's your mileage like?

    BMW e34 1989 535iM ~220,000KM

    11.39 L / 100 km
    8.8 km / L

    4.73 gal / 100 mi
    21.1 mi / gal

    -------------------------------

    On a side note, does this year M30 have anti-knock provisions?

    Sorry to break the thread, but it seems that my consumption is 'average' so to speak Thank you VERY much for your submissions and do keep them coming. I'm sure someone will search for mileage and stumble upon this as a baseline.

    On the note of anti-knock sensor... since the M30 doesn't have it (1989), then if I chipped it and ran lower octane gas for whatever reason (yes, I know!), nothing would retard the timing and it would be knocking until it fell apart?
