i've been getting around 43-45 mpg on a tank, and all of a sudden i'm now getting around 37!

i always thought the 45 was a bit low (i took into account the fact it's an auto, but even so with my previous w203 manual i was getting close to 60mpg) but now i'm worried that i can't crack 38...


it's a little overdue for it's B service, is there anything else i should be looking for other than the filters that are due to be checked/replaced

I would say a good service may sort it out.

Also what is you engine temperature doing? Make sure its running around 80-90 degrees and not taking an age to get there, a jammed thermostat can cause poor economy.

Changed the air filter and was an improvement, just waiting on some decent weather to change the oil and fuel filters
