Bmw 325i 2003

Hi guys i have a bmw 325i which i just bought but it seems to be using a lot of fuel, average 12.5L/100km. Is this normal for this car? I drive very moderately too.
Thanks for your views in advance. Tendai

You might see if or when the fuel filter was changed. It's a cheap and easy fix and I would change it about once a year

Change the fuel filter for sure and the air filter. Check to see how your spark plugs are as well.
