I am selling my prize 1987 Mercedes Benz 300SDL Hybrid/Frybrid (Diesel & WVO)
Mercedes Luxury + Frybrid WVO System = PPM (Penny Per Mile)
fact: depending on miles and fuel, you should Save about $2,000.00 within the first year of ownership.
The '87 SDL has the 6 cylinder 300 Turbo - it is a sweet engine .
The odometer 243,230 - 1/6/2011. The car is in really good condition for the age and miles. It isn't mint, it is a moderatly high mileage car with typical wear and tear. The best part is how well it runs. This Benz is a real pleasure to drive in. It is still the Best car I've ever had. The entire interior is in very good condition - not perfect. Has typical wear from head to toe, but nothing beyond minor blemishes anywhere. The Climate controls are awesome. Keeps you at just the right temperature. Heats up very quickly, cools very nicely. The refrigerant was just topped up last summer. June '09 I had to have a temp sender for the condenser replaced and all is COOL again.
Paint: Typical minor blemishes around the car which you would find from 24 years of use. The roof and trunk have areas that are oxidizing. I can buff like crazy and make them fade in real well, but it doesn't last and does not go away. The chrome is in real good condition - 24 years old with fading areas but no peeling, no rusting, not bad.
This Benz is currently using the ultimate WVO system made; manufactured in Seattle called Frybrid. The Frybrid system is semi-automated. Just start the car, flip the WVO switch and drive. The WVO system will automatically activate when the car reaches the proper operating temperature. You will not even notice it coming on - except for a little green light and the sweet smell of french fries! When you are ready to stop, just press the purge button & flip the loop switch on the console. Within about 1 minute the WVO has been purged from the fuel lines. You are done. So darn easy - my momma could do it.
Okay, if anyone is looking for a good SDL all sorted out and running perfectly on wvo, this is it.
