The theory is that the new piston rings hone the bores while they are still sharp. This improves piston sealing.
I am not saying that you Rev the engine on cold oil, or turn the engine off with a hot turbo or abuse it in any other way.
I'm in France now at Disneyland Paris. I brought 3 10litre jerry cans of petrol in the boot through eurotunnel, this is the max you are allowed.
When I traveled on Wednesday about half the fuel stations had fuel. I kept the car topped up.
Next week I am in Paris, I suspect it will be tricky...
Full tank and 30l in Plastic fuel cans (max Eurotunnel allow) in the boot.
I was thinking the Euro Adapter may be ok on 8A charge rate, the problem is a full charge wont get me far and I can manage without the car for the short urban journeys.
I'm off to Paris tomorrow in the C350e - it's not great timing from the fuel point of view...
Has anyone taken a C350e or a plug in car to France? I don't have room for both cables and am wondering if it is worth taking them. In our Paris office car park their are regular plug...
From my experience there is no chance you will get that kind if economy from a C350e on that kind of journey. More like 35mpg.
It may still be worth it financially, it drives very well and you can offset fuel costs against BIK. The C350e makes more sense if you do short slow journeys with...
I took delivery of mine yesterday. So far I am very happy, coming from a E250 the boot is a little small but I have a roof box when needed.
It is taking ages to get to learn everything, it feels a massive leap forward in tech compared to the W212.
I want to try charging the car at home...
My original choice was brilliant blue but I went for Hyacincth Red after seeing a CLS in this colour at the dealer. Mine is due first week of April, I ordered in early October - can't wait.
I am also moving from a 13 plate e class, I just hope the back seat proves big enough for my 6 year old...
Is it an aftermarket sat nav or MB comand/aps50?
If it is aftermarket I would've inclined to replace the lot with a decent aftermarket Bluetooth Headunit and use Waze on your smartphone for navigation.
My 2013 E250 saloon has averaged 40mpg over 58k miles
It is thirsty for short journeys around town as you would expect for a heavy diesel car. It is easy to get 50 mpg on along journey.
All this is based on in car display, not by calculating from a brim to brim fill.
I have one of the last pre facelift 212's. Quality is excellent. Car has done 58k miles in 2 1/2 years with no issues and is still rattle free. That's more than I can say for company cars from Audi, BMW and Volvo I have had previously.
