New Member C250 Coupe

Hi, new member here! Got my C250 Coupe 2 days ago and loving it so far, big change from my old astra!

Fuel economy isn't what I expected; i'm getting around 32mpg at the moment, but I know this could be down to the weather and me having a very excitable right foot.

Perform a tcu reset on the car and monitor mpg from there, so the gearbox can learn to your driving style - http://mbworld.org/forums/c63-amg-w2...et-my-ecu.html

It says ECU reset, but it is a TCU reset

I do this on mine every now and then and feels sharp!

I have a 200 but I don't monitor mpg so I can't help there

32 mpg could also be down to short trips as well and the engine not being fully warmed up.
