Im curious how many miles do you guys get on a full tank on your 2.6?

Im considering keeping my 2.6 as a second car as it feels so nice even compared to my CLK55 just the 190e clearly lacks the power. I got a heavy foot i can't seem to control myself, so im wondering what you guys are getting. If all city driving on a full tank?

1991 190E 2.6

I am rough on road, that's why my numbers may not be the average numbers, but so far difference between HWY mileage and city is a 100 km per tank. In any case I don't exceed 500 km per tank. Let's say on 450 highway kilometers I am driving far on reserved gas with light on. City driving gives me about 350 km per tank.

My 2.3 gives me like 18-20 MPG city driving only and 26-28 MPG HWY only.

The 2.6L was initially EPA rated around 19 city and 22 hwy and by 1989 was EPA rated at 20/23 which was pretty interesting since the drivetrain remained the same, but the car got heavier . . . that aerodynamic cladding must really work!

lol
Those panels have kept my doors looking good for the past 20 years and 220k miles :)
maybe there is some aerodynamics benfits like lets less air being funneled into the wheel arches.

OK, 23 MPG = 10.2 L/100 km (highway)
My tracking of average city/hwy gives me less than 11 L/100 km. Means mine in a good shape and numbers are true! Can be better on cruise control thought.
