You know Mike, thats a great question. I drive my 300D around town and do local errands with it. Between my wife and I we have 3 other vehicles. She drives a Grand Cherokee, I drive a Suburban, we have a Chevy Aveo that we use as a commuter car or for whatever we feel like using it for, and the 300D.
I never have filled up the tank on the Benz. I usually just drop $20.00 in it and go. I seem to enjoy my time alone just driving around aimlessly in it.

Iget 32 in the summer with my 4 spd on summer diesel and keeping it under 65. maybe 28-30 in winter. Get a used engine in good shape. I picked up one that was clean and quiet for $200 from a wreck. Rebuilding is too much work and $ if you can find a good donor.
