15 mpg in a 300E is certainly below what you would expect.

The mpg of the 300E's varies slightly with the year of the car as the 300E's gained more and more weight throught the years, but generally speaking, 17 mpg city / 12 mpg hwy is what they claim.

The "300E" with the best mileage is the '93 300E at 18 mpg city / 23 mpg hwy, but then again, '93 300E's are really E320's w/o the badge.
