    mercedes announced SAE this year under lab conditions

    the gasoline engine finally obtained 50% effiency

    in other words 1/2 of the availbe energy goes out the exhaust pipe

    may SAE ( society auto engineers ) have been chasing the optimum for decades

    the quest goes on

    that was a lab engine under lab conditions

    Got this, lugging this heavy bitch around. Tuned with KDMAX.

    Which is around 19.5 mpg on a 120 mile trip.

    dash indicators are seldom accuarate in many scenarios

    easily could have been ‘ snapped ‘ flat to rollin terrain

    i love it when the dash shows im gettin triple digit mpg

    the most accurate gauge of mpg gallons filled - gallons used consistently divided into miles

    considering all conditions encountered give a reasonable / real world mpg

    MANY of the vehicles being observed on this site have altered gearing / tyres ( which have alterd actual roadgoing gearing )

    many have altered ‘ Tunes ‘attempting better performance

    little effort to accurately compensate for those contemporary gearing/tyres effecting MPG

    comparing apples to oranges

    Meh, the cluster is usually a bit pessimistic in my truck.

    That and the larger than stock tires mean I'm actually getting a bit better than indicated.

    No need to hand calculate every time :notsure:
