Diesel sounding 318i

Hi Guys

ever since i bought my car (black liquorice), people have been asking me if its a diesel, which is highly annoying.
its a late 2004 318i 4cyl

the engine, when idling, sounds like it has rowdy tappets or fuel injectors
i haven't had the chance of hearing other 318i's idling, so im wondering if anyone else has this problem. (if it is a problem)

also, i get around 11L/100km fuel consumption with mixed driving. is this ok for a 318i?

attached is a pic of liquorice
