You are thinking and worrying too much. The system works just fine so leave it alone. I was weined on these cars as a young mechanic. If you start screwing around with different components, I guarantee you are in for misery. If you want to get rid of the system and install an aftermarket breakerless, that is another story. If you are looking for better fuel economy, you will need to get rid of the 108.016 and the 114.011 and get a 124 chassis 300E. Those cars were at the beginning of the emission era and got terrible mileage. I'll bet you don't get over 13 to 14 mpg on the 250. The 300E was designed for fuel efficiency. It says so in the MB manuals.
