I get 44 mpg indicated - 42 mpg actual from tank fill to tank fill on same pump.
But then it's the 2 L on a long trip! :LOL:

My wife is constantly complaining about the MPG. Coming from a 330d it's a bit of a shock. But I knew the MPG would be bad which is why I made the effort to lay out the cons of buying the stinger before we got it. Of course, she claims I never mentioned it! LOL. Luckily for us, we only do 8k miles per year.

Getting an electric next time :)

I had a 3.8L V6 non-turbo 200 hp EU model Camaro for 9 years from '98 to '07 and got around 31 mpg on my 100 mile daily commute to Chippenham and back.
Even my Kia Proceed 1.6 L tubo 200 hp GT was a better car (and had a much better mpg) but didn't look as good! :LOL:

31mpg doesn't sound too bad for that TBH, although it does show how much more efficient the stinger is getting 160 bhp more with slightly better MPG.

Seems high I agree, but set trip and usage to zero before leaving home and on arriving back home it showed 6.8 litres per 100 km which equates to the 41 mpg.
As the tank was not full when I left home I filled it to the brim at the end of the trip and it worked out at 7.51 litres per 100 Km which is 37.6 MPG
Hope this clarifies my previous post
