This car is almost completely commuter for me, 50% highway.




If I drive conservatively to game the MPG, I can get 27ish.
If I drive without regard to MPG, fun acceleration, I get 25ish
If I go on a long trip on the highway, I get 35+.


I have a GLA250 2WD

This is what I got today, with more than a little shifting between 4-5-6-7 on the highway for break-in with a quarter of the miles on back roads and a quarter in some traffic with stop and goes. Only half way through the break-in miles. Very impressed.

40 mpg

There is someone in Portland, Oregon with a 250 matic GLA averaging 26.1 mpg. What are others seeing?
I do a mix of city and highway driving. I have approx 3400 miles on it to date, and averaging 30mpg. My 16 mile drive to work today registered an all time high of 40.5mpg!!! See attached pic!

I have been averaging at 30 mpg around 2 K miles, one thing I noticed mpg does vary with kind of fuel used Bjs Premium vs Shell Nitro

I have a GLA250 FWD.
Calculated average fuel use after 2,000 miles is 28 mpg.
My display is also over reading by about 1 mpg.
That's mostly been 30 mile commuting at 30 mph average with A/C always on.
I'm in a hot climate so auto stop useless because the car heats up too quickly.
On a normal commute the display can average 36 mpg if I keep the revs down with a really light foot but that game gets boring.
On one longer trip, 200 miles at around 70 mph the indicated average got to 38 mpg.

First two tanks of fuel on my CLA45, I averaged 24.3 mpg. I also miss my CLA250 which averaged 28.26 over the two years that I had it but I can live with the 24 for the extra power of the 45.

I was driving down from the mountain after a day on the slopes and was clocking over 50mpg! I should have taken a photo but the road was a little windy. Oh well...
