Interesting and (for me) unexpected. Perhaps you normally had your right foot a bit farther into the 350? And the 55 has some improved fuel management? My only experience is 2006 280 vs 2006 55.... big spread there. No complaints, however.

^ But filling up which is less irritating? With my old S-Class, I resented putting fuel in it. With my 55, I don't care!

Cool

The two are driven substantially the same. I actually tend to put my foot into a little more with the 55!
