Thumbs up 1980 300D biodiesel


My name is Carlos, I was a finish carpenter and I own a nissan frontier. Recently, I graduated from NHI as a massage therapist and health educator, and found the car I always wanted (1980 300d) to become biodiesel and stop giving money to the fossil fuel industry of destruction and greed.

My mercedes is in beautiful condition, recently painted, excellent interiors, engine is healthy. Some transmission roughness and fuel pump/valve timing issues. Climate control sometimes work. 220000 miles, 200000 miles all maintained in mercedes dealers as I have the maintenance booklets. Viton fuel hoses, Mann bio diesel filter and a cracked dash waiting for a sexy cover. Color os light metallic blue/gray, dark blue interior. 30mpg.

very happy to drive this beauty, and exited to ask questions to the experts before I get raped by mechanics.
