fuel consumption

Today took trip with the diesel, and checked the milage on the highway. I got a 27 mpg reading. I would like it to be better than this. Is there any things that are there for trying to improve the milage per gallon? Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

Be happy with those numbers. I only average about 23-24mpgs with my 300D.

You might want to add that you own a 190E to your signature so that we can help better

I don't have the original window sticker for the car, but I am not for sure if they posted the empg in 83 or not. I just think a 4 cyl diesel should go in the 30's without any problem.
