I'm getting 16.8 mpg and it never changes.

Any idea why this is happening ?

you can try resetting it. mine was stuck at 0.00 on my e46 and when i reset it it went back to around 14.4
i don't know if its the same for e90, but hold the button on the turn signal lever when you're in the mpg screen and it will reset

Ask for an allowance raise. That's what I did.

If u start ur car in the morning and run it to warm up... Ur mpg ratio will plummet.... Common sense eh if all u do is city driving that ratio sounds about right... Mine is around 15 on a 350z but km not miles...

I don't know miles or gallons I'm European muhahaha lol

What's so bad about 16.8 mpg... You actually think you're going to get exactly what the specs say (18/19 mpg). For 3L Inline 6 that's pretty good imo.
