No its not. You need new batteries for your calculator (or do you live at the bottom of a 300 mile hill? ;-)).
I had a 1995 C220 petrol in 1998. Best I ever got was 36.
I can't get close to 53 with my diesel!

These figures cannot possibly be correct.
I`ve heard of Labour Spin but this is ridiculous!


Can you please revisit your calculations or else tell us its a diesel.
Happy motoring

i know its unbelievable because i still dont believe it i kept pumping the fuel in untill it definatly would take no more and the calculations were 335 kilometers as it is an import to 27 ltrs = 12.04 kilometers per ltr x by 4.5 = 55 mpg i must have been so shocked i droped 2 mpg

found this in an ebay add it might be possable to get 50 plus


The C200 range has two common electrical faults that i know of. The heaters get stuck onto full heat or they only blow cold. I have carried out some preventative maintainence so this will never happen within your ownership of this car. From a cold start, heat comes through within a couple of minutes.

I have the original manual in its little folder, tools and jack and spare wheel which is brand new.

The car gets a wash every Sunday and is regularly polished and waxed.

Recently i was working down the A1 and i was getting over 50mpg which i was pleasantly surprised at!
