I get about 21 in the city and 26-28 on the highway. Anyone get better or worse? My car is a 84 380SL. I love the car.<br> <br> A friend told me that she gets 25MPG in her 99 vette in the city and 33 on the highway. I was shocked!<br> <br> Morgan

Re: Mileage

I have a 1980 450SL (160bhp). I get 13 mpg using 87 ocatane. If I could get 20 mpg, I would be extremely thrilled.

Re: Mileage

I have owned 3 vettes, and they all get in the mid 20's. They are much more efficient than my '89 560sl, but I still love my Benz.

Re: Mileage

1988 560sl Sunoco Ultamate 94 only<br> no a/c 19.2 mpg max after started using 94<br> a/c on, 16.5 mpg<br> +/- depending on how often I excelerate hard.<br> I've only had the car a few months. It was my father's... so this isn't the best test.<br> It is a luxury car and it's hard to drive it slow.<br> As long as it runs well I don't worry about the milage.<br>
