Not a lot. Gas mileage depends on the weight of the car, the way you drive as much as the size of the engine.

Take my advice - hold on to the 300E. Those are quickly becoming collectors items (400E and 500E moreso) and a lot of people would like to own one. To trade/sell what you have now for a 190E is a pretty big step backwards.
