    How was your X/5 diesel?
  3. Distronic and following distance

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    Be sure that you have an understanding in the difference between Distronic & Distronic PLUS. My ML250 has Distronic PLUS-a fairly expensive option. Standard Distronic will ALERT & ASSIST stopping your car when necessary but NOT necessarily stop your vehicle. It alerts you to hit your brakes hard...

  5. Increase Diesel gas mileage 4%+

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    I believe that getting 4-5% mileage gain is a nonissue $ wise. The extra gain is cancelled out by the extra cost. My usage is based on engine/performance benefits.

    I don't ck my mileage. Only MB computer. As I am retired I don't have any regular pattern of driving. I am sure you can locate the product. Go on website-they post where their reps are. That's what I did and then called the N.C.,who gave me the location of the nearest outlet. And then there is...

    Diesel Treatment. I have used FPPF FUEL POWER diesel conditioner for many years in a bus rv I owned with great results. Now that I have a 250 BT I have tried their new LUBRICITY PLUS FUEL POWER. Spoke to local factory rep who recommended this new product for car diesels. Have used 1 treatment...
  9. Behavior of ultrasonic sensors and warning during parking

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    Do you have a FRONT camera. MY 360 camera can turn on the front camera only so I can SEE the proper distance.
  10. Most useless feature?

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    Try screwing the pins down further. Replaced mine w/chrome pins I bought aftermarket. They screw down all the way to flush w/door frame.
  11. The price seems too low.

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    Have there been any DEF heater problems with the 250 engine?
  12. Question regarding "Distance Warning"

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    You probably have Distronic but NOT Distronic Plus. Go to MBUSA for explanation. All else fails CALL MBUSA.

  15. The price seems too low.

    W166 M-Class / GLE-Class
    At my location in N,C. I can buy diesel @ $2.49 less whatever the credit card discount is. Net less than $2.45 or about .08/ mi/hwy. @ 70mph get 34mpg. Enjoy. My ML250 is a real bargain. UPDATE 3 days ago (9/22) I bought diesel in N.C. for $2.12
