Up to now I've always ran it in E mode with the A/C off. With this I'm getting a very consistent 23.33 mpg on an E280 estate.
On my next fill up - I will run the car in S mode and with the A/C permanently on - to see what impact this has.
So watch this space (circa 2 weeks time or so ish).

I have found that on my E320 I get about on average 25-27mpg in S mode. I get about 30-32 mpg on average (mainly motorway) in W mode. I think it would be different on a 4 cycl car. Oh how do you turn of the air con as I havent read all the book yet. Am I right in think as soon as the dial hits the blue zone then thats a/c?

The V6 sounds much nicer when pulling away from standstill, I get better MPG,
