1983 Mercedes Benz 240D

I recently purchased a near-mint condition 1983 Mercedes Benz 240D, and I have fallen in love.

Fuel Economy

For a car that is nearly 30 years old and is built like a tank, she gets amazingly good gas mileage. I have to admit, it isn't as much as I was hoping for, she being a diesel and all, but I'm very pleased nonetheless. Check out my fuel economy logs here.
