Exactly the sort of information i needed thanks
So i forgot to write "about" 40 minutes then.. Obviously i don't drive at 90 the moment i leave my house in the small residential roads etc.
Thats when i get on the actual motorway.
i work early's and i travel 40 miles each way 5days a week, i leave my house at 5am and it takes 40 mins of solid M4 driving to get to work, so my cruise control sits at 90 the whole way everyday. Even the police that i see occasionally who are sat on the side of the motorway don't bother with...
Im looking to buy this car:
Mercedes-Benz C Class C250 BLUETEC AMG LINE PREMIUM 2.2 5dr
Now my reservations are that as it has a smaller sized engine, will i be able to achieve similar or better MPG at higher speeds then my current car?
The 2015 C Class C220 CDI Estate has 7 gears exactly...
90 mph now.
I used to be 80mph as my car is bang on 2000 revs at 80 in 7th gear and the mpg works out pretty decent etc.
However, i just want to get the journey commute part to work done as quickly as possible these days so recently I've been doing 90.
I have always used camskill tyres and find them great.
I usually try to find the cheapest tyre with the best rating eg. BB, CB, BC.
ive found that sometimes the "unknown" budget brand is often a sub division company from a well known tyre brand company after some research.
thanks for the reply, I'm not too worried about the ride and power etc.
i literally drive like a granny these days and constantly try to get the best mpg. However, i don't want to substitute the speed element.
