Default Fuel consumption SLK 200

Hi,

I just bought an SLK 200 from 2006. I love it. The only problem is that I'm very surprised with the fuel consumption. It's really high.

Tires: 225/245
In highways, no more than 140kmh is going up to 8.5 l/100km
Urban is around 10.5 l/100km
The combined is around 9.5

That is quite higher from what I read.

Do you have an explanation for this?

Could you please guys tell me what is your consumption?


Thank you.

Raiky.

Looks pretty good - I get a bit higher on the highway, and a bit lower urban on my C200K.

I find that driving style really makes a difference on these cars, so sounds like you drive like I do :-)

Average 11-12 L/100km on a 350. Urban can top 16.

My 2005 200K auto pulls in typically about 8 lt / 100km (34 mpg Imperial). But there again with all the darn speed cameras in the UK its hard to push it too often.

My experience is that a local taxi is much speedier than any SLK in Istanbul, come to think of it probably faster than anything else!

Hello everybody!
That's my first post, I own an SLK200 R-171 and since new (8800km now) the computer shows 8.7 liters / 100km (about 11.5 km/l)
I've to say I am not using the car downtown, I live just about 20km from a major city and most of the times I use the car to go to the airport or to reach some cliffs where I go climbing, therefore the traffic doesn't bother me 80% of the times.
Actually I thought I would have had a better fuel consumption, since the SLK200 is not a real sport car, with a 1.8l engine and just 163hp. I got rid of a Boxster S, whose fuel consumption was around 7km per liter, but that was understandable on a 3.2l engine with 100hp MORE than the SLK200...
I heard the SLK200 restyling is less thirsty than my pre-restyling R-171, anybody here have had the chance to compare the two cars?

For city driving i get between 4.5-5 miles/litre. On highways it gets to 6 easily if the journeys are long. On a trip from Yorkshire to London and back i got 6.5 per litre but the journey was over 500 miles and steady driving with no passenger and nearly no luggage.

Raiky, I wouldn't worry, sounds about right.

I rarely get a mixed consumption under 10 l/100km. If I really try to drive calmly I get it to about 9, but that don't impress the ladies...

Of course, on the Autobahn, I don't dare to even look

At first the consumptioned bothered me as well, but then I thought about it. After all it's about sound and feeling and g-force, not about economic driving and hugging trees. To quote SLK Rabbit: "Prius, hmm I think I'll drive the SLK " Now, I just give the car all the juice it want's, in large chunks...

your fuel consumtion looks good.

I do have to say I use fuel whit octane 98 (from total fina). And I average a 8l/100km around town and I just did a drive of 120km which was High way and city mix whit drive up and down hill, right and twisting road. so a lil bit of everything and evenly balancet. And I got a average of 6.9l/100km. but moste of the time my consumtion is around 8 because I like to flor it at the red light. Don't forget every time you start the consumption go's up. If you fil here up and would start driving whitout stopping till you fuel tank is empty you schoulde easy drive more than 1100km.

I got a facelift model.

We've averaged about 30mpg since we have had the car, just coming up for 20k miles.
