Actually, this is what is confusing alot of people. Consubables are not doubled.
You get double from them effectively, but they are still not doubled.

On a normal day you would get the following if you completed a storyline mission with maximum legacy and a 25% xp boost consumable:

at 10.000xp points you would get 100% xp from the mission + 30% from legacy and +25% from consumable. That is 10.000 + 3.000 +2.500 = 15500xp.
On a double xp weekend that would be 200% xp from the mission +30% (of the base xp) and +25% (of base xp).
Meaning: 20.000 + 6.000 + 5.000 = 31.000xp.
Now, the problem some have is that they double the xp bonus from the consumables giving this calcluation:
200%xp from mission + 60%xp from legacy + 50%xp from booster.
Adding up to: 20.000 + 12.000 + 10.000 = 42.000xp.
That last calculation is wrong.
The only thing that is doubled duirng the double XP weekend is the base xp form missions and kills (and exploring and whatnot). The xp boosts from legacy and consumables are not doubled.

"Consumables aren't doubled"



*shows that consumables are doubled*



Considering I was quoting Bioware...

Draw your own conclusion.
PRE-ORDER ACCOUNT LEGACY LEVEL 50 LEVEL +55s: 23
ETERNAL WARRIOR CHEEVO POINTS: +29,000
