Hi again,
What MPG can I expect on these cars? Can the cars run on less than premium fuel?

They can be run on less than premium, but they shouldn't be. If you do a search, you will find lots of informative info on this matter.
I was not able to find mph data from MBUSA, but I know that my 1995 C280 (Manufacturer's Data) gets 20 city and 26 hwy. I am always flying all over with always a mix of city and hwy and never get below 19 mpg.
