    I get about 28MPG on highway at high speeds (70-90Mph). I only see lower MPH in short city driving in sport. It all depends on how much I wind her out.

    Same here, that around town driving is murder. I try to take off like all those slow pokes I used to curse. Funny how things change, but hell they did it in econoboxes! I have a legitimate reason not to nail it at every green light.

    Still getting used to a car (German) that gets better MPG on the highway at high speeds.

    24mpg on the highway at 60-70mph
    low 20's if I'm messing around on the highway
    in the city it can get as low as 13-15mpg
    overall avg is around 18-20 I'd say
    I have an '01 CLK55 btw

    When I finally took it out of sport, I can see up to 32mpg @ 55-65. Typically 27-28mpg around 75-85mph. When I get on it in Sport, about 18mpg. Fun comes at a cost.

    I have a 2002 CLK320 with 70K miles. I recently switched to regular gas and put nitrogen in the tires. My MPG increased to 32 highway/ 26 city.
