I didn't get the first part of this but given the equation " A pig
weighs 30lb plus half its weight. How much does the pig weigh?", 60
is the only possible answer as stated below.

My '94 325i gives a combined - long term - mileage of 24.5 mpg. When driving
on the freeeway at 80+, I get about 27.7 over my 40 mile commute. If I get
stuck in traffic for a very long time on the way to work, then the number
My car has the OBC (On Board Computer) with lots of buttons. One of the
buttons is labeled CONSUM. When I press it, the OBC displays CONSUM1, and
when I press it again, it reads CONSUM2. I reset CONSUM1 everytime I fill
the tank (everytime I get gas, I fill the tank) and the reading is usually a
bit above 24.5. CONSUM2 is never reset, so it gives a reading over a very
long time. (CONSUM1 & CONSUM2 can each be reset, but I do not reset CONSUM2
as a matter of practice.)
I assume I could slow down to the maximum legal speed limit in my state, and
improve my fuel mileage as a result, but what's the fun in doing that?
Point of interest is that my lock-stock '94 540iA also has the avg. MPG
feature in its OBC and I get almost the same mileage. Actually, I tend
to average 23.8-24.2 mpg in mixed driving, but it does not get much
better on the highway. Not bad for a 286HP / 295 ft. lbs beast with a
slush box... ;-)
