They are actually looking at JavaScript variables. From the efficiency page, use the "Developer Tools" feature of your web browser, to inspect the variables.

What's available may depend a lot on which country you're in. That information is from the US website www.bmwusa.com , then, you log into your connected drive account (which differs country to country - it's not a BMW worldwide thing). If you don't have your vehicle registered in the US, you'd have to try to see if it's available in yours.

FWIW, I check mine, and it said 17.92 not all that bad after 4.5 years.

Apparently Canadian i3 owners don’t have the same access. I’m working with BMW connected drive support to figure out why I don’t have access to Remote Cockpit via the web portal. At least for me, there’s no efficiency page or similar available. Not sure if it’s due to my 2014 MY i3. It’s taking awhile as they aren’t exactly prompt with their replies via email.

In some markets, you may also need to pay for the remote connectivity. Each market decides on their selling price, 'basic' configuration and option choices, and included maintenance provisions. It seems that Canada chose to not include the TPMS, but rely on logic to detect a low tire pressure by rotation comparisons, for example.

I heard back from BMW Canada with the reply "Remote Cockpit will not be available in Canada until next year".
