Hello from Finnish Gas Saver
Hello all, just joined Gassavers and though it is time to present our vehicle, 1985 Mercedes Benz 240D, it's considered a large vehicle here.
We bought this pearl one and a half year ago when the Toyota gave up and my wife wanted a Mercedes, and the color was just right.
It started out at 29mpg but soon went down to 25mpg due to fuel leaks from the tank and from the engine. After this was fixed the summer mpg has been around 33 and winter around 29.
My commute is mostly highway doing around 100km/h thats 60mph. I always has to restrain myself to not go with the speed limit of 120km/h (74mph) wasting fuel.
I'm planning to have the steering fixed, it's quite loose, and make the necessary repairs required by the yearly inspections. I'm also finding ideas at gassavers, like a grill cover, that I will try out if I can find time for it.
