I have also been watching as I have a surplus OM617. But so far, no motive to pull the M116, as it is running fine and I am being ripped off on diesel fuel.

The price of diesel now is stupid.

Avaiability still not at 100% of stations...even in Canada where we embraced diesel powered cars a long time ago.

But some diesel powered cars will go forever on a tank...which makes it a little more attractive.....however these same cars are usually priced 25% higher than the gas powered sister car.

Putting a diesel in a 107 would be purely just to "do it".

It is an interesting project for sure.

Just a quick update for you guys... my 380SL diesel conversion project car ventured out under her own power today for a quick once around the block. A fair amount of troubleshooting and debugging to go and a trip to the state inspectors to get re-titled as a diesel before it's legal, but the end is in sight.
