While mpg is important to some, to me spm is more so...

Yeah, I remember driving my then-new 07 M6 6MT coupe from Orlando to NY and having to stop 6 times for gas. After each fill up, the range showed 325 miles, yet after driving a few miles the range would start dropping in large chunks...and fast. But overall, I had averaged slightly over 19 mpg on that trip, which I thought was very respectable for a V10!

I do recall keeping the car in mostly 4th and 5th, just to hear that glorious V10 singing above 5500 rpm...I will say, that trip was the highest smiles per mile quotient of any car I have driven since. Almost regret selling the M6 in 2010...
