Help on selecting the correct diesel for the job

Hi everyone..... Ive posted on the boar many times and got some very useful information. My dad is on the lookout for another mercedes. He is passing his 00 E320 to my mother. He has to travel from central NJ to
Montreal Canada about 2-3 times a month for the next yr or 2. What would be the best diesel for this task? Is it ok to take a car on a dash like this for a year or 2, at the most with 180K on the clock? If the car had those kind of miles on it, we would make sure that everything is well maintained.
Regards- Chuck

Ditto with TG on these cars... I want to get one too... prices on gas are crazy.... at least in US.
However, the E320 has excelllent fuel mileage already... at 20 city and 28 highway... which is as good as the old MB diesels... but nowhere near the newer diesels.
