    My ML 270 Diesel with an auto gearbox does 30mpg,

    Note: 120miles (work and back!!) over 4 days and 74 litres of diesel =£100. or 30mpg if my maths is correct!!
    Note2: It's mostly 'A' road not dual carriageways and no motorways!

    The same site I posted the above on states 29mpg for the auto - so it sounds right and is not far off the manual at all.

    I guess the OP prefers manuels...

    Hello All
    Thanks for a warm welcome , have since been driveing the ml270 did of course find some faults now rectified very simply by getting it plugged in and the computor tells you the problem strait away . have also found its jolly good on diesel average is 38/40 mpg but then i dont drive fast like most people as every penny counts esp if am paying for it , i have 2 sprinters 1 is a tipper and its mpg is approx 35 mpg whether loaded or empty my other 1 is a camper and it does approx 40 plus mpg both are 312 5 cyclender turbo diesels with below average mileages . great machines mercs . thanks again charliefarlie

    Hello and welcome to the forum.

    You get 40 mpg out of a 312? What's your secret?
