You always get more than 45 MPG? Uhh really? Even in Imperial, that would be more than amazing, Derek!

I'm very satisfied.
Beats the hell out of driving a Prius. I'll be excited to see the B-class in the US

I agree that it beats the hell out of driving a Prius!

But the average fuel consumption of B 200s on the German site Spritmonitor is 8.7 L/100 km (27 US MPG), so let's not set expectations too high! Mine is averaging 32 US MPG.

For the lucky ones like Mike and me, enjoy your B class.

Probably not before 2011 and not at all like the present B.
Our present B is German made and the next one maybe from China.

Mike tell us where the next generation of B will be. Please!!

If it's made in China then what's the point? Might as well buy a Honda or Toyota.
