TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 The latest diesels tend to be much smoother, quieter, and more powerful than those of just a few years ago. But people still don't buy them for their smoothness, quietness, or quickness. Gas engines maintain a lead in these areas. People buy diesels for fuel economy, and here the Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC excels. Its EPA numbers are best-in-class: 28 mpg city and 42 mpg highway with rear-wheel-drive (RWD) and 27/38 with all-wheel-drive (AWD). Even in E400 Hybrid form the gasoline V6 in the E-Class manages only 24/30. The Audi A6 TDI, offered only with AWD, scores significantly lower than the E250 in city driving: 24/38. The BMW 535d splits the difference in city driving, but runs with the Audi on the highway: 26/38 with RWD and 26/37 with AWD. So, based on the EPA numbers, the Mercedes has a significant fuel economy advantage, especially on the highway. Combine the EPA figures with a 21 gallon fuel tank, and the E250 BlueTEC can cover up to 900 miles between fill-ups. (This is especially attractive when you consider the sliminess of diesel fuel. Even much more than with gas, which largely evaporates when not contained, you do not want to spill any diesel on you or your clothing.) Switching to the real-world numbers reported by the cars' trip computers, the Mercedes (tested with AWD) retains a clear edge over the Audi on the highway, where the trip computers reported 45 and 38, respectively. In suburban driving with a light right foot the results were closer, about 40 to 37. I did test the Mercedes in the Bay Area of California, rather than back home in Michigan. On my usual suburban route it probably would have managed a few more miles per gallon. Also add two-to-three mpg for RWD rather than AWD. Most of my driving in the E250 was done along the scenic California coast, where a leisurely drive with infrequent stops but plentiful hilly curves netted 37 mpg on the way south and 41 on the return. Quite good for a fairly heavy all-wheel-drive luxury sedan--but the Audi (based on similar driving in an A7 TDI) would have been close. The real challenge comes from BMW. In my suburban driving the 535d's trip computer reported from 37 to 47, with low 40s typical. On one highway drive it reported an astounding 53.8 (but on another a mere 38). The tested 535d was RWD. Even so, if both trip computers were similarly accurate the BMW could be about as efficient as the Mercedes in real-world driving, while being considerably more powerful. Also, the 535d isn't the only BMW diesel sedan available in North America. If you can live with less interior space and less power, the Bavarians also offer the 328d (compared to the E250 here). The much lighter, four-cylinder car achieves EPA ratings of 32/45 with RWD and 31/43 with AWD, suggesting a clear advantage in city and suburban driving if not on the highway. see full Mercedes-Benz E-Class review

TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Toyota Camry

Toyota Camry Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2015 The SE's grippier tires knock the Toyota Camry Hybrid's EPA ratings down from 43/39 to 40/38. The Ford Fusion Hybrid tests better, 44/41, while the Honda Accord Hybrid tests far better, 50/45. Then there's the real world, where, according to the cars' trip computers, my suburban average was in the low 40s in all three (the Lincoln MKZ standing in for the Fusion) and topped 50 on trips with no unexpected stops (i.e. any braking could be gradual enough to rely almost entirely on energy regeneration rather than the friction brakes). The Camry Hybrid acheived the best reported mpg on my standard school-to-home run--an astounding 70.6--but it started this particular trip with a eight bars in the battery pack (fully charged) and ended it with just two. You can only drive two, maybe three miles on electricity, but when the route totals 7.5 miles even a couple with the gas engine off can generously pad the average. On a 70-mph highway the Camry's trip computer reported averages in the low 40s. I wasn't able to test the Honda on the highway. The Lincoln MKZ hybrid's reported somewhat better numbers than the Camry's, but there's not a large percentage difference between 43.7 and 47.4. Any number of factors besides the cars themselves (trip computer accuracy, driving speed, wind conditions) could account for this difference. Frankly, I'm mightly impressed by any midsize sedan that can consistently average over 40 mpg, as these all can with light-footed acceleration and (especially) braking. see full Toyota Camry review

After 6000 miles the car averages around 24 mpg city and 27.4 mpg highway. The latest response from the dealer is the milage will improve after I have driven 12,000 miles . That is the fourth milestone i have been told to reach for better fuel economy. The dealer refused to put the car in the shop to check out this problem. Last week i drove 286 miles to Louisville, KY and back with 246 miles on interstate highways at 65 mph. I drove with the Eco light lite with slow acceleration. I have spoken with other 2012 owners and they report the same milage. The conclusion I have reached on the average milage listed on this web site is by people who do know how to accurately figure fuel milage. see full Toyota Camry review

Fuel economy is as expected, not great. It's a heavy car with an old engine and AWD. Short trips in the city, and it's fairly horrible. On the highway, it's particularly sensitive to speed, as the car is not very aerodynamic. I got as bad as 16 l/100 Km in the city, and as low as 8.8 l/100 Km on long trips. I believe the advertised 8.5 highway is possible if the trip is highway only. see full Toyota Camry review
