    Least likely economy run

    This week a trip North meant that I had the pleasure of driving at 60 MPH for mile after mile of the M1 between Nottingham and Leeds, much of which is controlled by average speed cameras. When the speed limits were lifted I left the cruise control set to 60 MPH for the rest of the motorway...

    W212 E350 fuel economy

    So yesterday we did our first long trip in the E350. Five people, two dogs and two bikes on a rack on the back. Also a boot full of Christmas luggage (one dog was in the back with the luggage). Tyres on 33/49 as recommended by the fuel flap card. 250 miles of motorway and A-road at an average...

    W124 economy guage and autobox

    Hi all just quick question out of curiosity. My 300ce economy gauage fluctuates with the E and S setting. So at idle in E the guage will go to the middle. In S it will go about a 1/4 from the black then when I accelerate and car is hot at the next traffic light when I stop, it will for a few...

    w221 S320cdi white/blue smelly smoke / poor fuel economy

    Hi Guys, I've had my S class for about a year now and have noticed from the start there is substantial white smoke on cold starts or when sitting in traffic. The smoke stinks and I can only imagine it is diesel which isn't being burned. I know from the previous owner that the car had the...

    Troubleshooting: squeaky wheel at low speed, vibration at 70mph. Drop in fuel economy

    Hi everyone So, last weekend I noticed a bit of squeak slowing down. Then at 70mph a vibration, and fuel economy has dipped. I'm a novice, but it's obviously alignment or wheel ba lance My dilemma is which do I pay to get done first? I wa thinking wheel balance, but then if that's not the...

    Fuel 'economy' lol

    Luckily I don't do many miles in the E55k because it's only 3 miles each way to work and I'm away most of the week with work anyway so economy isn't really an issue but I was wondering if my mpg so far sounds right! I've done 200 miles since getting the car mostly nipping about here and there...

    C63 Economy

    Hi All, We're all set for a bit of a road trip to France to do the Alps and then down to the south and Monaco, until the fuel troubles. Does anyone know what a real world tank range is, i.e. does Zero really mean zero? I know it will run at 30MPG showing on the trip if I'm really sensible...

    Weird MPG

    Hi, I have a c270 cdi which I often drive about 250 miles weekly up and down the m6. The computer readout reads between 52 and 56 mpg average which to me seems very good. However, if I work out fuel consumption the old fashioned way, tank to tank, I'm working out the consumption at being around...

    Link:*Mitsubishi Motors admits falsifying fuel economy tests - BBC News Note that the BBC article fails to mention the type of fuel the car uses. When*VW diesel cars*were in the spotlight, diesel was demonised. If this time diesel is not mentioned, maybe we can assume it doesn't use diesel...

    C250td poor fuel economy

    It appears fellow owners of this beast (w202 model) are seeing about 35mpg. When I put £20 I am getting about 100 miles out of 15 litres so roughly about 28mpg. I have tried to alter my driving style and be more gentle with my right foot yet I have not seen any real improvement. What could...

    My fuel economy

    After reading the thread about all the C63s getting comparable figures to me, I'm a bit concerned... My M272 E30 (3L V6 Petrol) has just clocked onto 88,000. It has a FMBSH until about 40,000 and the same indi FSH until 82,000 when I bought it. I changed the oil, oil filter, plugs, air filters...
