And saved more money . >:D

After 6 weeks of ownership I've not needed to top up oil yet.

This is a weird feeling for me because on my last car, a Z3 3.0, I'd get through a litre per 500 miles or so. My mum's old S2000 got through a litre every tank.

Will the R171 be thirsty on oil? I don't have much room for storage in my flat so I've been hesitant to get more than a litre at a time but the £20 per litre of Edge was seriously costing me!

Hi All
Well in 7 years of ownership , Our 55 has asked please put 1L of oil in the engine next time you fill up with fuel only twice , that's about 50k of motoring. I do have the oil changed even year with the MOT .

Cheers

Andy

After 12 months (including serviced early (at 10 months) to coincide with MoT ) and 6000 miles the car has taken less than one litre of oil.
My R171 was equally frugal, and from memory so was the (vanishing memory) R170.
For all their (many and varied!!) foibles Mercedes I believe, do not burn oil, unlike some VW marques I've encountered, or leak oil, like a certain brand new Porsche some many years ago!
