300sel gas milleage
some are saying over 20mpg others are at 15 to 17, I'm light footed but won't buy a under 20 mpg car..... your thoughts
According to http://www.fueleconomy.gov/ they say that your 300SEL gets 15 mpg in the city, 17 mpg on the highway.
my 300E gets 26 on the highway and 20 in the city it has the 3.0L engine
If you buy a 3L petrol car you will never get good mpg my 300ce does somewhere between 15-20mpg. being light footed will help but not enough to make a massive difference in the economy. And if you do put your foot down you will actually be able to see the fuel gauge falling. My suggestion would be that if your looking for something thats 20+ mpg than go for a 2L or diesel car.
My experince with an 1989 300se was about 17 average, the SEL is a bit heavier but should be close; These cars use premium gas though.
