As the title suggests what is the MPG on your c class. I am no Lewis Hamilton type but getting an average MPG of 38.6 combined on a c220d.

I got just over 44 mpg over the past 12,000 miles.
That is calculated by miles covered and the total gallons used and not by the car's on board computer, which I find is optimistic.

My C220 CDI is the w204 2011 facelift model with stop/start and is manual both of which probably help with mpg.

OP- yes, dependent on your commute and driving style that’s entirely possible.

Both my CLK & C250 will show an average in the 30's if used around town most of the time. When dual c/ways & m/ways are used more frequently the average will move into the 40's. If constantly on m/ways, like a trip to the south of France, the average will be in the 50's.

I am getting very similar on my c220 but on motorways it will be around 44 most. Considering yours is much bigger engine but the economy is quite good.

16-18 mpg around town. 21-23 on more dual carriageway type schleps typically.

Sometimes less... :geek:

Mine is C180 petrol and on a recent 230 miles trip it returned an average of 39.7mpg, about half of it was on motorway's. I wasn't pussy footing it although I do stick to the speed limits generally. Not too unhappy with that :)

My CLK220 does about 39mpg but on long runs about 44mpg, if I keep to 55 to 60 I can get over 50mpg.

So I think me getting similar to yours is normal. I wish Mercedes have done Start/Stop in earlier models!!

No you don’t. It does very little on mpg but it does knacker out the timing chains on the smaller engines...

I am getting very similar on my c220 but on motorways it will be around 44 most.

At what speed and over what distance?

I do a regular long motorway journey from the NW to the SE but there's a 23 mile mixed A road run to get to the motorway from home. I reckon on a cold day it takes pretty well that 23 miles for the car to be thoroughly warmed up and when I get to the motorway it'll be showing high 30's MPG. If I take it easy - steady 70-75 - the MPG will slowly increase and it'll max out around the mid-50's.

Coming home I tend to drive a little quicker where possible although the traffic is often busier. I'll see mid 40's then, and that's with the return journey being almost straight onto the motorway. I reckon the trip computer over-reads by about 2MPG.

I find any spell of "press-on" driving absolutely murders the MPG - you really have got to back off and almost let the car drive itself if you want the highest MPG.

I drive about 25 miles from home to work everyday and it's all motorway mileage. Also I am very gentle with the gas. Usually do about 60-65 mph and getting an average reading of 44mpg on the trip.

However I haven't done a really long trip on the motorway since I had the car(bought it on 15/02/18).Going to Wales next week so I will see what the actual MPG is on the car for motorway driving.

I'd say that's about right then. 25 miles isn't very far in these cars and if driven gently and at a reasonable speed there will be a fair amount of cooling which is going to work against warming the car up. If you reset and then did another 25 miles you'd probably find it a fair bit better.
