Black To old school -new

I've been researching diesel vehicles especially the old school classic look. 300D or 220D
I have owned two c230 2005/2003. I want to try bringing back the old to create and see first hand how biofuel is an alternative. Does it get better gas milage than my previous vehicles? is it cheaper to fill the tank? When driven hard does can it compete or keep up with the other vehicles. Is the positive image of having alternative green quality vehicles just an advertisment other than a reality? How much maintance has to go into bringing a vehicle up to date. I have read many for sale vehicles it appears all have issues with the A/C and no one appears to know how to fix that. Why the moon roof stops working, some power windows stopped working, fixing an odomotor that has stopped, replacing the sound system or antenna. Just repainting the vehicle... How much money on average goes into such a vehicle.. Does anyone have any experience on these questions, issues, etc?
