In this case, for the 228i Coupe, the fuel consumption showed by the manufacturer is 6,6 liters / 100km or 43 MPG (UK) - 36 MPG (US). In reality, this value is always higher because there are other factors that the company which produces the vehicle doesn’t take it in consideration. These factors can dramatically increase the real MPG of a car. As well, the catalog value for the fuel consumption is obtained in a lab, in a safe environment and the car is tested at low HP.
