Someone on a BMW forum spotted this and worked out, using average mpg figures, it will have had 55k spent on it in fuel alone omg

A rough breakdown - if it only gets used monday - friday, is over 50 per day in petrol omg

From what I read on the net they average around 15mpg
3.8 litres = 1 gallon = roughly 3.80

146000/15 = 9733.3 gallons of fuel
9733.3 x 3.80 = 36986.70

36986.7/3years/52weeks= 237 per week fuel cost

That would make me feel sick lol

He will most likely have Googled it. The more popular gallon (aka US gallon) is 3.79 or summit along them lines. A UK gallon is 4.54.

Thats why as cheap as their fuel is, because its sold by the gallon, its not actually quite as cheap as it first seems - still damn cheap though lol.

It causes no end of problems when discussing cars and oil/fuel prices etc on a US forum I use.
