    hey guys,
    its my first post! :)
    a quick question for you all...
    driving my 2012 c class sports coupe c220 amg and am very pleased.
    but am a little concerned with the economy im getting...

    its between 30 and 45 mpg is that normal? as official figures are a lot more it seems... i dont thrash it about - not too much anyways!

    would be interested to hear your views???

    thanks

  2. Sounds about right to me - I can get 51mpg if I drive carefully on E. I prefer S, when I get mid 30's though.
    I expect the economy to improve as the engine loosens up.

    Exact same car as you.

    Hi,

    I have an identical car, assuming yours is fitted with the 7G automatic gearbox?

    The best I've managed is high 30s / very low 40s MPG.

    The 50MPG+ that Mercedes claim is a lie.

    yeh thats right, the 7g box is great though isnt it?

    the thing is, i also read the same in other magazines and also from other users of getting 55 odd so that got me thinking...
