I'd would like for you to wait until you fill up again to do your report, and for you to use the format like I posted.

Thanks.

Verifiable mileage? That seems a tad high (for mixed driving)

420 - 450 miles per fill, and a consistant 22.0 MPG. Slightly lower in the winter due to winter fuel. All highway driving may make it go up 1 - 1.5 MPG, but I rarely drive a full tank on the highway.

Dates from fillup: 1/1/05 to 9/29/05

Vehicle: 1983 300D Turbo

Miles Driven: 11236.4 miles

Fuel Used: 460.956 gallons

MPG: 24.38

Probably about 40% city, 60% highway driving

I have filled up twice this month - once from empty and once from about a 1/2 tank - I haven't included those numbers yet - I recalculate everything at the end of the month.

My driving is always 60 highway/40 local or 70/30.

9/5 - 9/20 388 miles 15.9 gallons 24.4mpg
9/20 - 9/24 155 miles 6.5 gallons 23.8mpg
9/24 - 10/7 381 miles 15.5 gallons 24.5mpg
10/7 - 10/8 206 miles 9.6 gallons 21.4mpg

That last one is weird because that was all highway. In the rain with the AC on. The AC does suck up a lot of power but it get pretty cold.
I haven't filled up since the 8th I'll edit this with the next results. I think it will be interesting to see what the next mileage will be.
As a side note I seemed to have gained 1 - 1.5mpg since cleaning the injectors.

Don't know what you mean by verifiable but that is what the fuel receipt and odometer said.

mileage

95 e300d 156,000 gets 590-675 miles/tank on average. 31.something/mpg for last three fill-ups. 70 miles/day round trip some highway, some city, some a/c. Very easy on the throttle lately - now I'm a master coaster.
