Question your MPG input on W202, 4 and 5 speeds?

i would like to get others input on their MPG experience on W202 cars, especially C-280's with either 4 or 5 speed autobox.

i just replaced my 300e with a 95 C-280 W202, and got just under 24 MPG driving about 700 hwy miles at high speeds (~85-95 MPH) without the AC.

that seems a little low to me. i burned minimum 92 OCT gas, the air filter is a clean mann, and i will change fuel filter asap also. i also ran a bottle of Techron thru returning 300 miles from x-mas with virtually the same MPG.

what MPG do you get? city? hwy? AC? what hwy speeds? etc.

am i too optimistic about getting the 26-27 MPG i've read about without dropping the hwy speeds down to 55 MPH?

any and all input will be GREATLY appreciated! thanks, - benton

At that speed, I would be pleased with your milage. The trip sounds like fun, but I don't think you could expect more efficiency from the M104. I've never run my 1997 C230 (M111) at that speed for that long, but at 75ish, I get about 35 mpg. At 75ish, my 1995 E320 Wagon (M104) is in the middle twenties. Good luck. Have fun.

I just got back from the boat show in Chicago. Took our 1997 C280 Sport. Got 27.9mpg. I usually get that on all-highway driving. I usually drive 9 to 15 mph over posted limit. In other words, I drive with the flow. Combined, I get about 25.

Hi Gang,

Happy New Year!!!

I have been getting 260 miles per tank driving on freeway and stop and go in the city on a daily basis (50 miles round trip to the office and home).

I am sure that this doesn't help much but just for comparisons sake.

Have great evening and talk to you soon.
