Range from a single tank ?

Uploading photos from my phone and found this one I took in the summer showing a whopping 743 mile range after filling up. Anyone managed to get higher?

not quite but not a million miles away.
have a 530d and it shows around 650+, obviously depends upon how you have been driving it!

curious what people are getting on the 550's?? I'm barely hitting 300miles which to me seems kindda low. Not sure of the tank size difference but my 12 cls63 gets over 300miles to a tank.

I can get ~310 miles per tank, 40:60 city/hwy, but I just passed 1300 miles. Hopefully it will get better

I'm around 200-275 miles per tank driving 100% city. Been breaking it in, so it should get a little bit better.

If you were in the uk you wouldn't be running a 550 with the price of petrol we have over here! Each tank would be be if my calculations are correct just over $150 !

You are absolutely right. I just moved back to the US after living in Reading for the past 2 years. My Jag XFS was a diesel and still got pretty crap mileage. I got about 350 miles on a tank and would routinely spend 90 to fill it up.

Fueling my 550 with 93 octane in Houston costs me about $55.00. Americans are so fortunate to have cheap petrol. Living in the UK definitely put it in perspective for me.

I had ML63 and the tank size was 90+ litres compared to 45+ on the 535i so can't really compare the mileage as the tank size is double!

All F10s have 70 litre tanks other than the M5 which I believe has 80.

520d M Sport results

I get 580 miles fully urban driving with some racing at times...

On the open road I have got 750/800 miles at 70-80 mph and being careful not to rev like mad.... if I stayed at 65-70 I am sure it would be happily over 850

My 535 6-speed will read 500+ on a pure highway mileage fillup. And that's usually averaging about 80.
