1975 280 Mpg

Hi,
I am considering buying a 1975 280 4-door sedan. Can anyone tell me the avg. MPG that this car gets and anything else I should know about this model. I have never owned a Mercedes before.
Thanks.

I agree. 18. My 71 250/8 with pretty much the same motor was always around there on the highway.

On the same tack, but slightly different, I'm considering a 72' 280SE, but with a V8. any guesses out there as to the average mpg? It's really the only thing holding me back.
Thanks!
