My new car.
2012 E350 CDI from 2012 so the 265hp engine.
Nice spec with panoramic roof and electric, memory seats as well as the usual other bits.
109,000 miles with good history and recent gearbox / engine service.
I have just had all alloys refurbished and new Goodyear Eagle F1 tyres.
Thermostat just replaced too so steady 90 deg C on the dial.
Economy perhaps not as good as expected particularly compared to my old BMW F11 535d and Lexus GS300.
A steady 75mph on a 90 mile motorway journey, including a good amount of 50mph action, and returning 34 mpg which isn’t brilliant. My old school 3.0 V6 petrol Lexus does more on the same journey.
I thought this eco stop / start engine would be early / mid 40s on the motorway?
