I've done about 4000 miles and I'm averaging 38-40mpg. That's a lot of city driving which some weekend motorway driving.<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">
<div style="line-height: 16.7999992370605px;">It's a bit lower than I was expecting...but the car is also a bit quicker than I was expecting.

Though, bear in mind that my work run is an hour long and generally pretty clear.Edited by: p0ppet

I'd be interested to see what, if anything happens once you're past the 6,000 mile mark figure....

37.6mpg average over the last 14,000 miles. Mostly local driving with occasional motorway trips. One of the most surprising results is that when motorway driving, I get about 41mpg (4mpg less that the E320 cdi I had previously) at roughly the same speeds and journeys.

Averaged just over 50mpg for me in the 24,000 miles I have done. I certainly can't complain about that in a reasonably powerful 4 wheel drive.

I'm averaging an indicated 34mpg over 13,000 miles in my petrol GLA250, which I am happy with given the type of local and hilly driving I do. Compared to my previous V6 C230 the GLA is positively frugal. But as I've said many times: it very much depends on how you drive, how fast and how long you drive for.

My MPG for the identical car

HiDo any owners of the 220 AMG 4matic have any average MPG figures?

I do an daily 18 mile start/stop round trip rat run commute and I get an average of 51 mpg.
I went to Port Isaac last week (from Wolverhampton) and did some touring while I was there, I got 598 miles out of my tank with an average of 56mpg.


It all depends how you drive it - best tip is to use your speed limiter to whatever the road speed limit is, my rat run is 30 with a two mile stretch of 50. I know its boring, but it protects your license and it definitely helps with your mpg.


For motorways, just set you cruise control to 70-75, police aren't interested unless you're doing over 80 or driving like a ****.

I have owned a GLA220 since new in 2014, I have done over 93,000 miles (all private mileage) the overall mpg since new is 41.5mpg. I don't nurse the car to gain better mpg and its usually fully loaded with the back seat down.
On a long run, even loaded at 65 to 70mph, I have seen 55+ mpg. I am more than happy overall
