I doubt it - the only times I've managed it is just testing it out for the leg of a road trip every once in a while, but that doesn't explain the EPA numbers which resulted in a gas guzzler tax for those of us that bought new.

Probably less. We were told at BMW's "M School" that the OBC doesn't go below 6mpg, no matter how you thrash it.
