This being my 7th diesel, and my 3rd benz, I am fascinated by the mileage I am getting. My 98 300E Turbo-diesel, on a long trip 100% highway driving, with the cruise set anywhere from 110-120 in the span of using half a tank, I got 36 m.p.g.
Some day I will try the trip on a secondary road at 90 KPH, I hope to bust into the 40 range.
For those out there versed in the oil burners, this engine is incredible. Power galore, and great, no incredible fuel mileage considering the weight of this car.
