Can someone please tell me what kind of mileage they are getting for either their 500SL or 300SL. Love the power of the 500SL but since I live in $5.00 a gallon of gas Hong Kong, I must consider the 300Sl.<br>
<br>
Any thoughts on how it is to commute with a 300SL in terms of power. Does anyone know if the 91 year has 24 valves?<br>
<br>
thanks.

well, some engines have the 24v, which sometimes is written on the back as it "24-valve"...

well, some engines have the 24v, which sometimes is written on the back as it "24-valve" and also ONLY the 24v 300sl has the option of 5 speed automatic trasmission, which i have driven, and it makes a difference in terms of power, and refinment. the normal 300 has 192hp and the 24v has 225, and it shows, so look for a 24v 5speed auto 300sl and save some gas.
