Imperial gallons.

Sorry to suck the wind from your sails but nice reference regardless.
Should be around 24 US mpg. I wonder what it will do in the city. Hopefully more like 17 mpg

I know, right? I was hoping they addressed the fuel consumption and range issues of the previous M5. The only thing I remember more than it's impressive speed was the frequency of stops at the petrol station.

Someone has been watching way too much Top Gear.

The E60 M5 had MPG of 11 / 17. Common sense would tell you the only way to get a combined MPG of ~24 for the F10 is high teens for city and >24 for the highway. That is a lot more than just 1 or 2 MPG improvement. Oh, and the F10 5 series have a 21 gallon tank, whereas the E60 have a 18.5.

I'm excited about the power and efficiency of this beast. My measly E60 550i does 15 / 23 MPG.

With all the extra torque, it would be an excellent candidate for X-drive...
