W212 E350 fuel economy

So yesterday we did our first long trip in the E350. Five people, two dogs and two bikes on a rack on the back. Also a boot full of Christmas luggage (one dog was in the back with the luggage). Tyres on 33/49 as recommended by the fuel flap card.

250 miles of motorway and A-road at an average of 63MPH, and it managed 38.7MPG. Having never got better than 27 out of our 3L Espace, I'm stoked :-)

Mine is averaging around 34mpg according to OBD using B Roads.

In France earlier this year getting nearer 50mpg.

I had virtually talked myself into a E350CDI BE of maybe 2 years age to replace the E250CDi BE (W212).

I average high 50's at those speeds/distances.

Now I need to do the math-mans and justify why an approx adverse 20MPG is a good thing.

Lastly if anyone is regularly cruising at 80ish in a 350CDi BE could you share MPG as the 250 is seeing 45-47MPG, even in this weather. Thx.

I have 2012 350CDI not BE (well no badges but have start stop etc). On long runs at 80-85 I average 38. Dash says 40. Overall including some short work I have 32mpg in the last year

The E350 CDi 265 I had would easily do 38-42mpg locally and over 55mpg on a 75mph run.

That's double what the 420 did.

Appreciate the numbers - need them for my man-maths.

Mine's an estate. Long run, not going mental on the motorway I'm 42-43mpg. Bumming around is nearer 32mpg. Average over 12k since new is 35.6mpg. Best I've ever managed on a non-motorway long run is 46-37mpg.
