That's excellent !

My E270 cdi would have done about 35-38mpg.

Nice one

Got 26 to 30mpg regularly on long motorway runs, average 24mpg in the W210 E55, 31 is a great effort. Best I get from the W211 E55 is about 26mpg on long runs, average 22.

I wasnt being too serious, its a very good MPG you got! I don't like people who drive like nuts all the time anyway, there's a time and place to give it some beans and its not on open roads with busy traffic.

I'm not sure what my C43 returns, I never check as it's depressing enough with the current prices.
The only time I ever worked it out was approx 28mpg on a steady motorway run in France, at 85mph with aircon on.

umedc, I'd love to see an S55 being driven enthusiastically, that must be a sight specially if its a LWB one!:D
