Mercedes 300 diesel MPG
A Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID has traveled 1, 968 kilometers (1, 222.8 miles) from Tangier in North Africa to Goodwood in England on a single tank.
Mercedes added on reaching its destination, the vehicle still had enough fuel left for another 160 kilometers (99.5 miles).
The drive was the answer to a dare of a question: “Is it possible to drive a Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan from North Africa to the UK on just a single tank of fuel?”
British journalist Andrew Frankel answered this question by conducting a very challenging experiment of his own. He and his co-driver set off from Tangier in Morocco in a standard E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID, crossed through Spain and France and reached their destination in Goodwood in England after driving for 27 hours.
On arrival the speedometer showed that a distance of 1968 kilometers (1, 222.8 miles) had been covered. The total range of the hybrid vehicle, which is available as an option with an 80 liters diesel tank, can therefore reach 2129 kilometers (1, 322.89 miles).
Admittedly, said Mercedes, on their journey across two continents, four countries and through three time zones, the adventurous journalist and his companion made sure that they adopted a fuel-efficient driving style, however at times their progress was made difficult by heavy rain, high temperatures, big differences in altitude and also heavy rush-hour traffic.
Nevertheless they ultimately posted an average consumption of 3.8 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers, or 61.89 U.S. mpg.
Mercedes added despite its frugal use of fuel, the Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID boasts spirited driving pleasure. Its 204 horsepower four-cylinder diesel engine, combined with a 27 horsepower electric motor, accelerates the sedan from a standing start to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.1 seconds.brain tumor radiation success rate bryant and stratton student success car t cell therapy success rate castor oil at 38 weeks success cerebral success congratulations on your success customer success manager egg freezing success rates by age eleven rings: the soul of success emdr success rate empty sac at 8 weeks success stories family success center foster care to success heart ablation success rate hinge success stories innovative success system review inspirational success quotes iui success rates by age ivf success stories laws of success married at first sight success rate measures of success metformin weight loss success stories 2020 millionaire success habits national society for leadership and success palmers skin success fade cream pearson success net phrases success plan b success rate during ovulation positive affirmations for success positive success quotes quotes for future success reproductive success sacroiliac joint injection success rate schur success group serv u success seven spiritual laws of success skin success soap student success center success clipart success definition success factors login success has a thousand fathers success memes success principles success quotes for women success realty success through a positive mental attitude success word texas success initiative village club at lake success what is the national society of leadership and success what is the success rate of immunotherapy what is the success rate of prostate surgery what principles contribute to personal and professional success will success spoil rock hunter? wishing you success borat great success customer success customer success specialist salary framing success goal success quotes iron dome success rate key to success l4 l5 fusion success rate measure success med surg success natural pregnancy after 40 success stories quotes on success and hard work ralph waldo emerson success success academy job success achieving goals quotes sweet success what is the definition of success why is effective communication important to career success words that mean success success rate by age 7 spiritual laws of success achieve success ahcc hpv success 2020 bed bug heat treatment success rate
