2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG: Fuel Economy Update for April

May 6, 2014

2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG

Our 2005 Mercedes-Benz CL65 AMG logged 1,336 miles in April. Its average monthly fuel economy of 13.6 mpg brought the big coupe's lifetime average down to 14.0 mpg, from the previous 14.1.  

Our worst tank for the month delivered just 11.2 mpg, with a best fill of 15.9 mpg, the last partially thanks to the author's long highway commute.

The CL's best range remains unchanged at 408.7 miles.

Worst Fill MPG: 9.5 
Best Fill MPG: 19.6 
Average Lifetime MPG: 14.0  
EPA MPG Rating: 13 Combined (11 City/18 Highway) 
Best Range: 408.7 
Current Odometer: 63,090 miles

    I really love to read the updates about this car! For a long time I've been considering buying one of these beasts. Can you write about the Distronic (radar) cruise control? How does it work in real traffic? What do you think about it? How does the nav system work in real life? As you can guess I am a little bit a tech geek :-)
