In following with what another member already alluded to, the originally published EPA figures changed, and MB released a note to all dealers, followed by reprinted Monroney stickers with the correct estimate:
Old Values: 26 mpg city/37 mpg highway
New Values: 26 mpg city/35 mpg highway
of course it's an ESTIMATED value, given certain test conditions, etc., but the change wasn't considerable. I also would have to agree that perhaps it's a little early to judge, catalysts require at least 2000 miles or so to break in ... and then there's the rest of the to car to take into consideration.
