Aside from the 5 speed manual bonus to mpg, was there anything different to these cars (rear axle ratio, injection system in 88, etc) that lets them get 27-29 mpg? My 87 auto on its best tank came up with 22mpg at 70. It is pretty quick, however, so much so that I have never understood other members complaints about acceleration issues on their 87 300Es. Better mileage would be nice, though.
