Hi there.
Can anyone inform me about fuel consumption of c36?
I´m from portugal and here fuel price is higher than other european countries and perhaps even states.
I want also to know what are the suggested sizes of wheels and tires by Mercedes factory.
Hope you help me.Peace.

ps:sorry for my (bad) english [:)]

I get around 16MPG in the city and 18MPG on the highway going 75MPH. The stock AMG rims are 17" staggered, 7.5" front and 8.5" rear. Stock tires are 225/45-17 front and
245/40-17 rear.

I never get less than 20mpg. I average 22mpg with mixed driving. I get 25mpg at 70mph in trips.

My brakes also always last over 100,000 miles, too.

Just clocked 23 mpg. Drive in "W" mode, easy on accel from stop lights and use cruise control wherever possible. Tires are 18"s and run at 36-38 psi.


...............putting your foot into it takes you down into 17 mpg or lower.

I have found 9.4l/100km on the highway at 110km/h and 12.5l/100km around town. The car is very sporty but not very economical according to Euro standards.

The AMG factory wheel/tyre size is as "stox" said. Any changes start to encounter some problems of fit and function.
