Freeway about 12-14.Basically this ^ what Daniel said though I actually seem to do a little better around town. But maybe he engages the full 6.9 effect more than I do. Best I ever did on the highway was 15 mpg. That was with a tailwind and constant-but-gentle continental downslope from Colorado to Iowa.
Quote from: BCDC on 24 March 2021, 12:35 AMMy advice is don't worry about it. I get around 15L/100km using 98 octane here in Australia. Slightly better on long runs. These cars are heavy so "milage" is irrelevant. They feel the same at 160km/h as 60km/h. There is no point pussy footing around with this car, they love to rev so drive it like you want. This is exactly why they have 96 litre fuel tanks. Enjoy and pretend you don't care about the money.
Quote from: paraguaiano on 01 December 2022, 03:33 AMhello everyone, unfortunately I was not able to insert the photos. OK it is not a problem.
only now I need some essential information. Could someone tell me how many NM you have to tighten some screws? type how many nm, with the torque wrench do you have to tighten the screws of the water pump? Or the pulley under the water pump? Or the oil pan bolts? Finally, which oil is suitable for the engine? we are talking about a 2800 cc mercedes m110 engine. Thanks a lot everyone for any responses. Hello
