    You have checked for things like tyre pressure?

    Also on that note, you on chunkier tyres than your pal?

    Billions of threads about this.

    1.Check engine temp for thermostat problems.

    2.Check tyre pressures.

    3.Check lead weight in right boot.

    You have an issue. With the cruise on at 70mph my S320cdi returns 52mpg.
