I've downloaded that video. Even if you're on dial-up, it is worth the hours and hours of waiting to see.

Very cool, did you notice that they claimed better mileage than the 200D, 220D, and 240D?

They mean how much fuel was used in 100km. Lower numbers are better.

12.1 liters/100 km equals 19.44 miles per gallon (US).

Yes. That liters per hundred kilometers is a damm annoying way of stating mileage. It's the equivalent of saying galons per hundred miles. I dont know what the hells wrong with europeans or why they cant just say kilometers per liter like I always did. Just seems clumsy and stupid to me to the extent that I refuse to use that terminology.

Thanks guys, I couldn't figure out why the "mileage" values were higher for the 300D. I'm a little slow sometimes.
