Milage for a 1991 300GD?

Hello, I am considering buying a 1991 300GD long body Automatic. Does anyone know what kind of milage I can expect. Are the models underpowered. I am not looking for speed but comfortable highway driving.

Those are pretty rare. Any idea which motor? 603 or 606 most likely. Underpowered is a relative question but it would have 130-150hp.

I would estimate 18mpg or so. It's a big heavy boxy unaerodynamic vehicle.

1974 - W115 - 240D /8 - 4(M) OM617.910 + Turbo + 300D FW - Completed 7/8/10

Did you try the G-class (Gelandewagen) part of this forum? guess you should
I'd say body rust, like around the taillights and other places is the G-wagens enemy, good luck..
The non-turbo OM603 has around 115HP DIN.. You could allways put a OM603 turbo in it, the drivetrain is very strong on those cars..
I've only driven a millitary version 240GD, with only 72HP that was underpowered
