Gas Milage on 250C

I'm looking at buying 250C with a gas 6 cylinder. Any idea on what kind of gas milage one could expect?

A 250 C as in a w114 250 C? Might want to post in the vintage forum.

I did have a 69 250 that got 17-18 mpg. It didn't matter what kind of driving, weather conditions, terrain or whatever just 17-18 mpg.

I've always pretty much gotten between 18-20 Mpg, I once came across an article that said I should be getting around 23, and always figured I would once I got it tuned up.

I would like to thank the posters in this thread and forum for not tormenting me for my obvious case of mental retardation. I thought the thread author had posted in the w123 forum and I was responding in the same forum. [:I]

My apologies.

I’m going to take my medication and lie down now…
