My car's at 112k mi, and burns 0 oil. I run it on Delvac One synthetic, and run synthetic tranny and diff fluids.

I drive the car a 60/40 split of in city/highway driving, and the car idles a fair amount. I consistently get 25-27 mpg combined, and I drive the car HARD (I also drive a 500E, so I'm used to getting from point A to Point B in short order). I'd think you're mileage is great, and would perhaps be a bit better if you were firing on all 5 cylinders. And unless your injection pump is really leaking violently, the amount of fuel lost is negligible I'd think.

So, let's get that puppy up to 300k!
