What is the gas equivelant of the 240D

Just wondering what is the gas verion of a 240D called. Were there several models. Are the bodies basically the same with just a gas engine. I mean the 240d from 76-85.

Thanks

That would be the 230E/CE/TE if you are in the USA. Four cylinder, fuel injected gasoline engine. They also made a 200 (d?) 250 (gas, not injected)) and a 280 (e) in the w123 chassis.
The 230 is a fine engine which is very sturdy. close to the same HP as the 671-95X.

If you're comparing overall quickness the W123 200 or 230 would have to be somewhere near the bottom with the 240D. The 230 iirc was late 70's 4 cyl carburated, I dont recall what engine # it was. The 200 was early eighties, same engine as later found in the 190's but carburated as well.

I'll say it once and I'll say it again, the 240 is awesome. I love the sound of the N/A engine. Way more tractor like.

I bet the 230 is fun too....can rev it a little more I bet.


Later today I'm actually looking at a '98 C230 with a bad trans....I'll bet thats a smoooooth engine...

My 230CE will really rev good. It has more HP than any 617.95* though not as much torque. I'd bet the fuel economy is also better than diesel models. The M102 is a very smooth engine too.
The bodies are identical.

I don't about the fuel economy thing here. My 240D gets close to 40 MPG on the highway and about 27 around town.

OK so I may only get about 25 in town and low 30's on the hwy but I don't need to spend over $4.00/ gal for fuel.

230e's get like 20mpg tops. Dieselkraut on the forum has one (we hang out) and it does go fast though. There is nothing like going 125 mph in a w123

Mine has a manual transmission and it does get the mileage I mention.
Yes it is fast.

The US 77-78 230 came with the M115 engine, the closest a gasser will come to Diesel reliability and longevity. IIRC it continued outside the US through 80 or 81. It was replaced by the 230E with the M102 which is also found in the 190E and the 124 200, 200E(?) and 230E. Still a tough engine but idle control can go bad and drive you nuts.

The US 230 has pretty much the same features and options as the 240D. I see one for sale every couple of years. 230Es, which were never sold by MBUSA, are IMO easier to come by. If there isn't one on eBay now, there'll be one in a couple of weeks.

The pick-n-pull yard on Trade Zone in San Jose has a 230CE AT with SLS pump.
