So, I have finally bought my first SLK after having many different sports cars in the past. I have a 2015 slk AMG sport 250d. It is one of the last and has the 9g tronic and only £30 UK road tax. After a very tiring 6 hour 200 mile drive home is was showing 62 mpg, so I am well pleased. Now all I have to do is sell our E class estate! First job will probably be fitting a reverse camera.

Hope this post is in the right place?

Hi Peter. Welcome from Surrey, UK. That's pretty good fuel consumption for what must have been lousy traffic conditions!

Hi Peter, Welcome from the Sacramento Valley SLK Enthusiasts!

That gas MPG sounds unbelievable, 62mpg?

I’ve had 60mpg on my 250d without trying too hard.
I reckon I could get 65 mpg if I tried.
Imperial gallons of course.
That and 500 lb/ft of torque between 1600 and 1800 rpm make this an engine that is hard to ignore.
