    Got the first opportunity to take the car on a long journey - Portsmouth to Glasgow for the C2C music festival. I have to say, even doing it non-stop, the car delivered me in a very comfortable and relaxed state. And the fuel figures certainly seemed impressive. :)

    Which engine is that? The beat I ever had out my W212 estate (E250 cdi) was 62.7 mpg on a run from B'ham to Cumbria, it was helped, however, by a few stretches of 50 mph speed limits through roadwork's on the M6.

    Our S212 E350CDI just managed mid 40's once, being driven very gently. But these estates must weigh a bit more than your Coupe...

    About 200kg as the E coupe is actually a C Class chassis

    It's the 264hp version of the 350 CDi from 2013 (some clever bugger will know the exact model no.).

    Ours actually seems to be using a little bit more fuel since the remap. Goes though...

    This was my previous E350CDI Coupe one day on a run down through France last summer. I had never achieved over 50mpg before and will never see it again. At the moment, I get excited when I get near to 30mpg on the GLC o_O

    Not really surprised with the GLC 44. The 350CDI is a very economic engine, I get 48MPG over the year. Unlike my wife"s SLK200K, we struggle to get 33MPG out of that.

    Our 350CDI has never, ever been that parsimonious. 46 on a really, really gentle drive is the best. Long term displayed average over 20,000 miles is 32mpg - which includes a fair bit of local running around plus three or four caravan trips a year.

    Maybe the 2011 (264bhp) ones were more economical?

    Not really, I get a long term of about 32mpg.

    :) I'm sure if I commuted it would be a lot better. I bought this car last year on the basis that I was supposed to be in the road a lot more, didn't happen. Never mind.

    Ah, but I am guessing that your 3ltr petrol is not in a 2 tonne estate car?

    No it's in 1,495 kg SLK so giving away 300kg to a W204 estate
    No, 750' up a hill in West Yorkshire :p
