In my considered opinion you don't need a new thermostat or a TerraClean.

I don't understand why was there so much cynicism that I could get 59mpg? On a long journey presumably you get mid 50s if you drive like Mrs Daisy - eg in a 50mph average speed limit "Upgrading to Smart Motorway - expected finish date 2017".

Seems people driving 250's are jumping on your thread . ???? A 350 more economical than a 250 mmmmm

You guys with your fancy, colour, hi-res displays are really pissing me off right now. Much feelings of inadequacy with my 90s style 'dot-matrix printer' display.

I can only dream of those MPG figures ...but then I didn't buy my current car for it's fuel economy ;) I do however remember marvelling at how the 3.2 inline-6 TD in the E320CDI I had many moons ago would consistently achieve over 40 mpg on a run 👍 (pic below is of my current car).

Not good. I can get over 33 mpg at slightly higher average speed.

That did take into account a 20 minute stop-start traffic jam on the approach to the Dartford Crossing so maybe it'll achieve better figures on a less snarled up route as you have the same engine & not too dissimilar vehicle. That's been it's only long-ish journey since purchase a year ago due to the current situation 🙁

If you’re cursing at 60mph on the motorway and reset your MPG indicator then you’ll see those kinda figures...

Add in the cold start up and the town driving to get on/off the motorway and it’ll plummet

My car was expensive when it was new... 11+ years and 150k miles on... not so much! :D

Expensive to maintain though... sure!

If you think that some of you guys are having sleepless nights with mpg figures with your CDIs you want to go on to the AMG part of this forum and read about the rubbish that some of them come out with! as if you buy a 5.4 supercharged V8 for economy ? makes me laugh really does

To keep a good Mercedes good, is never cheap. I have a pristine 2006 C320cdi which is brilliant. Whoever buys it for £4/5k when the time comes will have a winner. I’ve spent £3k on a new turbo and the 7g gearbox rebuild in the last couple of years alone not to mention new shocks etc. Here at my friends house after a good wash and wax a couple of years ago.
