I've got a '71 220D that I'm using for my winter car. It's a great car
and starts with just 30 second glow down to about 10F then I have to
plug it in.
Pick-up on this car is fairly decent and I have no problems merging on
the interstate and cruise around 75mph.
The original miles on my 220D are anyones guess, but on paper it looks
to be about 120K.
My question: I'm getting only 23 miles per gallon (mix highway and
town) My oil consumption is about a quart every 300, 350, 400 miles.
Does this seem normal?
The owners manual says consumption should be about pint every 200
My 300 SDL with 320K miles on it barely burns a quart before oil
changes (4-5K miles).
Thanks for your response
