    Re: FC and petrol grade for F20

    HI,

    My 116i coming to 2500km.....

    FC so far :

    Best 13.8km/l
    Worst 10km/l
    80% City, 20% Highway

    Using Esso 98.......

    How to "spoil" the Auto Start/Stop? I want it......

    Was told by PML that they can programme it to default "off". But they need me to put car there for 1 full day for the programming to be done......

    yep... that is kinda true... Also, with the start/stop, I dunno if it will harm the engine in any ways, i.e shortening the lifespan of the spark plug and filter...

    Wah, must sign black and white, later engine got problem also say we initiate it too because we turn off something that comes from factory.

    Leave there 1 full day so same day can collect?

    IMHO, BMW = Ultimate Driving Machine. Full throttle all the way & hence with FC. Pump 98 and above only.

    No matter, none of you can beat my E39 520 in the city. Nvr higher than 7km/L.
    kenntona and jasonmaxima like this.

    Think I will go for 98 after I change the engine oil... Hope for a smoother pickup and better FC perhaps?
