I can only applause the drive.
Years ago, while being in college my oldest son drove Mitsubishi 3000, what is sport car.
I offered him W124 diesel, but he denied saying "Mercedes is for old people" .
Yet, coming home for Christmas and planning to meet his friends he ask me to borrow diesel as his sport car burn too much fuel.
I agree on asking to fill up.
The following Sunday we are leaving to church and I see fuel gauge 1/2 full.
I ask my son why he did not fill the car up as we agree.
He's answer was
He did it before taking off with friends Saturday night. The car was making over 500 miles on the tank.
I did not spend too much time to compare insurance rates, but my youngest one, being 21 paid about $700 annual premium high liability on E300DT, what I think is pretty good.
