Yes, you're right t's a snapshot and during my journey it was move between 3,8 and 4,4 l/100 km never above ... It's so frugal than it's more probably liter/40 km that per 100 km ... innocent when I will fill in I will have an exact idea of the average.

After 400 km of country road with time to time some hard acceleration I fill the tank up at maximum : 29 liters !
which gives a more than honest average of less than 7.5 liters per 100 km thumbs

BUT I also found out that when you turn the wheels at maximum to the left while the suspension is a bit in compression the internal face of the wheel rubs somewhere ...

Be careful what you wish for.. The C63 will show mog per journey or instant MPG.
On 2 mile trip yesterday morning it achieved 11.6mpg.
It isn't good when cold...
Oh yes, that is with 98 Octane, which Mercedes mandate...

And I thought the Saab was bad at a little over 22 mpg on the last full tank (first fill on Monday since mid-December). Normal Malvern commute works out at around 37...

11.6? I cannot even get the barn shaped ML63s that low unless I live on the throttle and brakes permanently. Are you pulling a concrete block or something?


Just time to burn a little more petrol before dinner.

You need to try harder Alistair, I often get single figures out of the Alfa.

in a short distance I can get single figures easily enough but over any distance it has three issues.

1. Law
2. Other road users
3. Corners

They may be in a different order from time to time (2 and 3 clearly)

I will make more effort.

Three requirements:
1. Ambient temperature just above freezing
2. Drive 1.2 miles at between 10 and 30 mph including a hill at 15mph...
3. Let the car cool for an hour before repeating 2.

On a longer run I've seen 28mpg, yet to crack 30. The C43 will easily show 35, on a long, legally compliant run.

My AMG SLC43 was averaging 7.5 mpg when I was only using it to go to the station & back. Motorway cruising at 90mph ( in Germany obviously) returns 32mpg.

Worst cost is front tyres - six months of the multi storey carpark corners & the mercedes crabbing problem means a set of fronts only last a couple of thousand miles.
