Once haven driven a W124 300D sedan auto Euro with automatic transmission and 109 PS it needed ca. 9+ litres in heavy city driving - which I regard as a very good fuel efficiency given the car is not that light and small.
I do NOT think you can get 4 litres per 100km (70,64 mpg UK; 58,81 mpg US) with such a car - maybe in overland driving close to 6 litres per 100 km, but not less.
Mercedes themselves claim (W124 300D sedan with 109 PS): 5-speed manual transmission city 9,8 litres (UK 28,83, US 24,00) 90 km/h 5,4 litres (UK 52,32, US 43,56) 120 km/h 7,0 litres (UK 40,36, US 33,61)
4-speed auto transmission city 9,3 litres (UK 30,38, US 25,29) (yes, less than man trans) 90 km/h 6,2 litres (UK 45,57, US 37,94) 120 km/h 7,9 litres (UK 35,76, US 29,78) (mpg conversions by me)

I can state from person experience, the car gets a bit over 30 mpg in mixed local/highway driving and over 35 mpg on highway drives

Well, as your are in Europe (i.e. not in USA) you should use the Imperial gallon but, as most participants here are American, you can use US gallons.
Your choice. What is more important is that you state which one you are using. A lot of misunderstandings arise because such things are not clear. Another example are the discussions on diesel engines. American reactions to diesel are, on the whole, different to the European ones.

I usually average 21mpg, but since I filled up at the local 76 station, I am getting around 24mpg!

I always get over 30 mpg, almost 40 mpg if it's all highway driving

I just finished a 658km run with my '94 E320, almost entirely 2-lane highway, 120-130kph, cruise control unused, a looong vague downill over the distance, and used 54 liters of 91octane (N.Amer) gas. Works out to 34.5 miles per imperial gallon or 8.2 litres / 100kms. CDN$ 1.01 / liter. (not complaining, just stating a fact)

My 90 300CE has never gotten better than 22 mpg highway and 19.5 city. Texas summer driving takes it's toll, but everyone here is reporting better mileage. Guess I just have a gas guzzler.

I assume that a Mercedes 300D with manual transmission and without A/C burns 8 to 9 litres per 100 km when you drive it with 120 kph on a highway. That would be a range of 750 - 800 kilometres with one tank. Driving slower, only 90 kph, may reduce the fuel consumption by one litre per 100 km. With a little luck, you could go 1000 km with one tank - when you ignore the yellow warning light at the fuel gauge;-)

So the indicator had to be broken.... After almost 1000 km it showed half of tank and there was no yellow light.... Thats righ- the car had no A/C (it had nothing at all except engine :) and I was driving about 100km/h on a highway.
Thank you very much for all of you for your help. I was trying to find out if a driver cheated my (money) or not....
