Hi, welcome to the forum. This actually comes up quite a bit and you might find it informative to run a search of the archieves using the word "mileage." I will contribute my bit though and say that I always get about 24-26MPG regardless of whether it's city or highway driving. I have a 300D turbo with a boost controller and the ALDA turned out just a bit.

fuel mileage

Gnolo, welcome to this forum. My 1982 300D averages about 27 miles per gallon in city driving. At 65 miles per hour or less, it will get about 31.
