Fuel Consumption Figures - W123 Diesels

Post by pastelgrey300D » Sun 23 Mar, 2008 1:47 pm

Scanned this in from my owners manual for all you W123 diesel fans. In the 300D I've never had any worse than 9.0L/100 - usually I return around 8-8.5 around town (this would probably be even less if I wasn't in the hills - although I do drive pretty conservatively).

....and the winner is... the 240D 5 speed at 90km/hr!

Interesting to see that the figures for the city cycle are almost identical between the 200, 240 and 300D's
