I'm in the club. But my current average with my fillup (already drove 500km and still have 1/4 left) is 11 L / 100km

This is in the 2000 Audi A8. I guess that's what you get with the 600 lb weight difference vs the 7 series?

The 525iT used to get just as bad mileage with the auto

Thanks for the numbers guys, I am currently in the market for a late model e38. I am currently driving a MB.

12.9 L/100km (city driving) in my 94 E420 and that was my highest ever. Generally I get something like 11.9 L/100km. Its a low(er) number due to the low final ratio in my diff. Only 2.28 if I remember correctly. And IIRC the e38 has a 2.93 diff gearing. A lot quicker but a lot more thirsty.

But for the higher comfort level that the E38 offers I'd gladly take the increased fuel milage.

Are you selling that E420?

I love those v8 w124's. Big sedans with a V8 is something to love, nothing like it on the highway. I was looking for a 400e but then this 735 5 speed came up for sale, had to have it

I get 11L/100 highway and about 14 city. I think the V8 might do better.
