I recently bought another Benz for the same reason. My XJ8 sucks down fuel around town. I found an old beater 300D (84) found she had no "blow by", i was shocked. I immediately handed the gent some cash and drove her away. Cosmetically she's awful right now, needs paint, lens, some door molding, etc. But i changed the oil, flushed the engine, new filters, new injector lines, and next week will be installing new injector nozzles. IMHO the W123 diesels are bankvaults on wheels, tough as Krupp steel! I'm now getting around 26-27 mpg around town. Not to mention this is one thing i don't think my kids can destroy! BTW i shelled out a whopping 700 big ones for her! LOL Cheers and happy hunting!
