So, AMG owners, how’s your Fuel Consumption?

Yesterday I managed 28.3mpg on a 60 mile motorway run in my pre-facelift 6.2 E63. Highest number I’ve ever seen in my car since I bought it 18 months ago. There was no traffic, I almost 100% behaved with the throttle and I guess I had tail wind.

removed. wrong thread.
 
I got 28.6 mpg the other day on a three hour drive to the Peak District, via A34, M40, A38 (so all dual carriageway) but forgot to take a photo :(.

We believe you. That’s good going too.
 
My CL55 kompressor has been remapped and with a few other mods is producing 580hp but on a run if i drive at the same speed as others on the road (70 to 80mph) it returns 25mpg, but where's the fun in that? :)
 
Drifted back to this thread as it popped up in New Posts again so I thought I'd see if I had some earlier data from previous cars.

There were a couple of bits in between the first (E55) one and the W212 E63 but, as one was an S8 Audi and the other a Jaguar XF-R, they don't really belong here.

W211 E55 Totally factory and unmodified: -

W212 E63 Highly modified and pushing around 850bhp with 1,000ft/lbs

MPG from BOTG 2022.jpeg

The E55 was on an early run to work one morning with the roads being relatively quiet, it was usually considerably less than that under normal driving. The modified E63 was usually pretty good, though I did manage to get it down to 6/7mpg a few times, especially when there was a runway involved. The attached pic is returning home from a Benz on the Green a good while ago. The last picture coincidentally is the same trip though this year.

The last two both have the M177 4.0 Bi Turbo engines and consequently are quite respectable on fuel.

I'd agree that trying to go for figures like this all the time is pretty boring though, with the limited driving I'm currently doing, it's becoming the norm unfortunately. I really need to get out a bit more...

I only did my 28 mpg because Mrs '63 was in the passenger seat, and I was consequently driving like an octagenerian.

Things get a tad more interesting when I do not have a passenger to consider.
 
I'm off to Austria next weekend with my CLS63 S/B... not that it matters much, but if I do get anything around/above 25mpg that'll be success in my books :).

RS6 V10 (and not for comparison) was well below 20mpg on a long run.
 
Just done a tank-to-tank calculation for my car - drove from Cambridge to Lancashire on Sunday at fairly flowing UK motorway speeds and got 40.24mpg.

The CLA45S is simultaneously the fastest and most fuel efficient car I have owned 😄
 
W204 C63. Managed 27mpg on a run at the weekend, whilst that dropped to 16mpg on a Sunday morning in the Peak District.
 
W204 C63 on a recent trip from Newcastle to Hampshire. I couldn’t wring anymore out of it.
It beats the 18.1 mpg the dash is showing for 2 years and 22,000 miles of ownership.

Interesting to see how everyone’s fuel consumption is going?

I use the free app ‘Fuelly’ to record all of my petrol fill ups and calculate my fuel consumption.

So in my 2011 C63 125 Edition, my latest average is 13.6mpg. The best I’ve had is 16.5mpg.

I live in Essex, most of my driving is in town/city. I only use Shell V-Power. But I only use the car for leisure and pleasure. I don’t use it for work or drive it every day.
My SL55 Which I was told is mapped (Previous owner) does around 18mpg on a run. I think it could do better as I have the error P203d001 angle variation of camshaft to crankshaft, Camshaft signal v(Maximum angle advanceds direction (P1999) which I believe is a program update on pre 2005 AMG engines. Just need to find someone to reflash the ECU as Mercedes want £300 just to tell me the above is correct then the reflash (Or other work).
 
11-13mpg on the run to/from work (up and down the A21, normal speeds)

It can reach 20+mpg if driven sensibily on the motorways.

Max was 23mpg through france :)
 
I was stunned to see the range creep up from 430 miles when I refilled it with the good stuff, to 510 miles after driving at motorway speeds for more than 30 miles, before starting to drop again. So for a while the car thought it had a range of 550 miles at motorway speeds. That was in a well laden W166 ML. Not bad. In real terms 430 miles is probably realistic.
 
to give you a gist... I did 6k km round trip around Europe with no. of alpine passes, motorways and Autobahns on my CLS63 Shooting brake.
- with roof box on - 11.7L/100km
- w/o roof box - 10.9L/100km

I was pleasantly surprised that one can do c.700km per tank - what a car.
 
( Diesel ) glc 250 amg premium + on 20” alloys , driving in C mode no motor ways
short trips 15-30 mls. Overall 44.9 mpg
 
Sweet spot seems to be 25.7mpg @ 70mph, just holding under a steady 2000rpm, carrying a passenger and nearly a full tank of fuel. Tyre pressure I think we're close to 40psi on low profile tyres? 20221005_085150.jpg
 
I've been driving like a gran and getting 25mpg average for the past 30 days... don't ban me from the forum please :D In reality, I just get so much satisfaction from that sound, that I don't need to rag the sh*t out of the car to hear it. Obviously fun on B roads is not excluded ;)
 
Today I noticed that my car has averaged 17.1 MPG but I’m not sure how representative it will be of real world use. It was only over a distance of 54.511 miles.

😁
