Too bad, but with 300k in the Rust Belt, not really a surprise.

We've owned a couple of W210 diesels. I feel they're going to be remembered on the "good" list. It's a car that is still pretty straightforward to work on.

I'd state the same. Every drop of fuel was recorded/logged that went into our W210 diesels. We'd be pleased to see anything close to that "31mpg" number.

We've had a 1998 and a 1999 W210 diesel. Neither car ever showed in excess of 31.5mpg on the road.


(Wasn't the 1999 car EPA-rated at some nonsense like 37mpg?)

From what I've experienced at the dyno with these cars, you need to figure out how to completely disable the system. Turning the dash-mounted switch off is NOT the answer, Shertex.

I think the latest iteration is call Turanza Serenity Plus.
