Hey I know it varies depending on how much it is used for highway and for city driving but how many miles per gallon are you getting in your normal work week? I am getting 19 and while I am driving quite a bit highway I drive it hard and spend a good amount of time at 80 mph in FL.

16mpg ave (not one of your options) approx 90% city. Pure highway is 25mpg+, though.
18.3 over my last five fillups
19 mpg, mostly suburban.

I get about the same as you: mpg, speed, and driving location. [8D]
I get about 20, I am surprised how close the spread is between 230, 320, and 32.
My 2002 SLK 230 must me an odd ball. It is driven 95% on the highway and it always at 31 mpg. In town, it does 27. Speeds on the highway are around 75 with cruise set and just zip along. Maybe the 2.3 liter gets a little better than some of the earlier engines.
Last fillup was an anomally I got ~21mpg. Removing that from the equation the last couple of times I checked I was getting about 17mpg.
Have absolutely no idea. It is what it enjoy. Mainly a garage queen.
I blow throw a 1/4 tank of gas in about 40 miles in my Slk32 on the highway, doing 60-65. So, to cover an 80 mile trip to a hobby shop that I go to in Marlboro MA, I can expect to add about 13-15 dollars to the cost of my trip for gas.

That sucks, but the ride is fun.
Ditto what Brian_R170 said. I've kept track of it for the 16 months I have owned the car. Just over 15 normally with lots of stop and go (fast stop and fast go - AMG - Zooom) driving. When I get the chance to get it out on the highway (mainly 65-75mph) I get just over 25.
26 mpg, mostly highway.
Mine's a daily commute car, almost all freeway, and a consistent 26 mpg with the 320. Maybe I do that well because I can't really drive as fast as I want in that kind of traffic.
