    I was just thinking. I know there have been posts on individual cars and what MPG should be expected.
    But thought a thread stating our cars and MPG would be useful to do a quick comparison.

    I and many others have our present car in our signatures. :p
    So stating clearly model and year would be good.:D

    At present I am averaging 37 to 40 Mpg mainly city driving.
    Which is a hell of a lot more than I was expecting.
    My figures are estimates only tank warning light to warning light.

    She'll dip to 23 (my work journey is a six mile round trip) but will give me 34 when the journey involves plenty of m'way @ a cruise-controlled 90 or 95.

    Average is 28 over the 6 thousand miles I've had her.

    About 20mpg if I have the gear box on w setting and drive sensibly, about 12 on sports and driving stupidly, but I do get about 17 if I drive sensibly.

    There again, we don't buy for economy do we :)

    My average according to the trip thing is 21.9 (mostly M/way)

    A lot more than I anticipated......had it down to 6.3 on a very early Sunday morning though :D

    Yep, it was worth it....still got the smile on....

    In a 54 plate C200 Kompressor, I have averaged 31.8 over 28000 miles, but have seen 43.2 (actual 41.8) on the trip computer over the 450 mile trip from England to Scotland driving at 70 - 80. Interestingly, but perhaps not unexpectedly, I have noticed a significant increase in fuel consumption in very wet road conditions even when driving at a reduced speed. Although unable to quantify this increase yet, I suspect it may be more significant than the use of the air-con. Any comments on this?

    Averaging around 20.5mpg across all types of driving over the past 1,000 miles. Previous owner averaged 21.2mpg over 45,000 miles. On the long motorway run home (>300 miles at 80mph), she returned 23.5mpg.

    Every car that I have ever owned has been horrible,right back to the 50's with monsters like Canadion ford V8's,Humber Super Snipes,all of the big Jags,Maserati's, PrincessR and hundreds more, so it goes on the MB SL500.

    CLK320 cabriolet returns around 23/24mpg around town and 33mpg on a run. Very happy with that.

    B170Se is better!

    I agree model and year in signature is a help often and also interesting. However, you give registration letter but not the year. I can never remember all the letter/year combos and anyway many letters relate to more than one year.

    Important that people say whether figures based on a manual check i.e. Set trip to zero; fill up, drive till well down then see how many litres to fill up again. Divide litres used by 4.55 to convert to gallons and then divide miles done by number of gallons used. This gives accurate useage. Once done and compared with computer read out figures, it is then OK to use computer BUT adjusted as needed. For example on my last Merc the computer showed 42 when the manual check showed 40. That is over-reading by 5%.

    On my present car (S320cdi Dec 2005) I average 35 -37 mpg on a run with reasonable traffic, but trying hard not to let it creep up to over 80mph indicated speed. Pottering about locally I get about 26/7 mpg and a fairly typical month gives me around 30mpg. All manually checked. On this car the computer read-out and manual check are very close together.

    On a 2500 mile round trip to South of France via Dover Calais and back, we averaged 36 mpg. For a big car with loads of grunt I think this straight six engine shows amazing economy.

    My brother's 2005 A class 2 litre diesel, called 160cdi, regularly does 65 mpg on runs from Bournemouth to London and Bournemouth to Cheshire. Incredible, but in line with govt figures.
