jgl1, Thank you for replying and passing along the info. I have since been to our local public library and researched deeper.
Following is a chart showing the effect of pressure on the boiling point of water:
Pressure(kPa) Boiling point: 'C 'F
47 80 176
68 90 194
100 100 212
140 110 230
195 120 248
This chart shows how much higher the boiling point is with the newest style cap available,
as long as the plastic tanks stay in place!
Since all Mercedes are water cooled, I think all owners would be interested, especially during this warm summer.
300SE, 300CE, C280Sport, 190/5.0
