You're talking about a 2 1/2 ton vehicle with 14 year old gas saving technology. 16mph around town and 23+ on the highway is the price you pay to drive an S series Benz.

Not meaning to upset you but if you can't stand the heat in the kitchen get out of the kitchen. If the 2000 S is in good shape you can probably trade for a 2000ish Toyota or Honda. Gas mileage will increase but driving satisfaction will certainly fall. Your choice!

You're in the wrong forum and, apparently, also in the wrong car.

Holy Crap! The best I get out of the 560 is 12-13 MPG'shttp://www.benzworld.org/forums/images/smilies/frown.gif. Part of my problem is I can't keep my foot out of it.http://www.benzworld.org/forums/imag...es/biggrin.gif I love the look on some of these little snot noses when I'm sitting at a light. They think because I'm an old fart in an old Benz that I will take three days to go 0-60. If I want to get better mileage, I will either drive the diesel or the 300 SEL. If you're really worried about fuel mileage, drive an econobox. AS old as my Benzes are, they are extremely safe. I have dual air-bags,abs, crumple zones. And they will do as well if not better than most other cars in a crash.
