    S212 E250 Wagon (2.0 Petrol engine)

    Drove from Woking, Surrey to Port Gaverne, Cornwall on the August bank holiday Monday. Route was M4/M5/A30. 244 miles in 3 hrs 45mins at 35mpg. Average Speed 65 mph.

    The traffic leaving Cornwall, north east, up the M5 was solid for 50 miles but going into Cornwall, it was the best I have ever known :) I would normally expect that route to take me near on 5 hrs.

    I've only got my CLK 320CDI recently, and only on my first tank of diesel, unfortunately its mainly cold drives to & from work 5 miles each way.

    So far the trip is on 28.4mpg. Looking forward to a long motorway run to see how it differs.

    No, I think it's not too bad for such a heavy car, but I was talking to the owner of the same model and he was running an average of around 40. Mine is 'powered by Brabus ' so maybe that has something to do with it, I don't honestly know. I have had 42 on a long journey from Cairnryan to Preston, starting from warm at Cairnryan, short journeys really are a killer for a big 6 cylinder diesel, sometimes from cold 11 mpg has been observed!

    Yes their mpg really suffers when they are running cold. I Run a grill block on all my diesels all year round, the temps never suffer, but they warm up quicker!

    My new 215 55 rarely gets above 11 around town on average :(

    Not really, just a piece of card on the inside of the bonnet grill, I leave a section free on the lower half for the intercooler.

    As the days get colder I block off part of the radiator with a piece of hard plastic sheeting. I did ask on this forum if it should be partially blocked vertically or horizontally but I didn't get a reply.

    I would say horizontally, stopping cold air getting into the engine bay is more the purpose in my eyes, as the stat is closed when the engine is cold.

    Yes that is the way I ended up doing it, much handier too.
