A Fuelly.com update on my 2010 BMW X5 35d #diesel

Posted By on December 27, 2019

Since I’m often asked what kind of fuel economy I’m getting on my slightly “tweaked” 2010 BMW X5 35d diesel SUV, here’s the yearly update from my log on Fuelly.com.


Nothing to write home about, but then there have been far more local trips than the interstate driving a few years ago … besides, my driving has become a bit more aggressive (heavier foot). Years ago when I was  focused on biodiesel and working a bit harder to keep my overall fuel economy up, I might have been able to move closer to 24 mpg … but still, a 23.6 overall average is pretty good for a 2-1/2 ton SUV … and not all that much different than 2018.
