For those following the modifications and upgrades on our 2010 BMW X5 35d for most of 2016, below are the resulting fuel economy improvements, at least so far.

This 5225 lb SUV (minus a few pounds) will never be a Volkswagen TDI fuel sipper, but I’ll take a 15% mpg improvement considering it also has gobs of power — JR Auto Tuning from FixMyVW.com –> Stage 2 Race +73HP  +117TQ = 338HP / 542TQ!
