    On a journey heading north (that's uphill!) on the A19.

    Not bad for a 6.2 V8.

    I think you're probably right, I went to see my friendly tyre man today and he said I could get another couple of thousand miles out of the rears; I replaced them 22,000 miles ago.

    Pictures like this make me get my man math calculator out. Not because I'd get a C63 to drive it like a nun all the time, but I'd get 23p per mile for fuel from work for a >2.1 litre petrol engine.

    29mpg works out at 20p a mile (I think). God I'd love one.

    Go on then, I'll bite. :)

    Similar distance, similar average speed but slightly more frugal: -

    It's averaged just under 25mpg since it was last reset around 1,800 miles ago, so not too shabby really.

    Can I play or is a hybrid considered cheating?
    I've had 58 on a longish run when it wasn't all bunged up but I don't have as picture.
    Frankly it does better mpg than the bike...

    Not too bad, but it's only a small engine :geek:

    My average over the last 4500 miles is 22.3

    On a longish journey one can get quite a good average and then just one little blast of the throttle can bring the figure right down. (that's when a BMW 320 is right up your chuff and he has to be shown who's boss)

    Pirelli P Zeroes all round. The fronts were on the car when I bought her.

    I’m not playing this game - it’s rather embarrasing!

    I think the OP posted this in the AMG section for a reason. Let the AMG BOYS HAVE THIER FUN.

    I manage about 35mpg give or take in my 2.0 W202. My last car (a 1.8l Ford, same year) would struggle to get 30mpg! I’m not complaining!!!

    That's less than 1mpg worse than our 230!

    It’s improved a bit A- my 230 was about 18 on average, I know the bi turbo is a bit more efficient certainly
