4 dollars a gallon means I need to work more hours. I will not give up power because the price of gas goes up 50 cents a gal. Now if it hits the $8 like in europe then I might be looking to increase the mileage to say 20 mpg
Lucky for me, I really haven't had to actually PAY for gas for over 20 years. Always had a job that gave me free gas! That said, I can see how some may get worked up over a jump in gas prices but unless it jumps a couple bucks a gallon, I just don't see it bothering the enthusiast car owner.
Sure, you can beat the official numbers if you drive it the right way, but not by 10mpg (which equates to a 40% increase in fuel efficiency). Not even the (much lighter, much more efficient) RWD 528i manages to get the numbers that you claim for your comparably piggish AWD 535xi.
