Share your actual gas mileage with other SL/SLK owners.

My 2005 SLK350 averages about 22.5 mpg in city driving and in the upper 20s on the hwy.
I'm curious though, how many M-B owners actually care what their gas mileage is? I'm guessing it's a pretty small precentage

SLK230, 2000 model, 90,000 showing. I get about 23 around town and about 28 highway, but have gotten as high as 32 if I am careful. Trouble is, with the supercharger, it is hard not to put your foot down, so I know my gas mileage could be better. But, then, it would spoil some of the fun.
But, this is not a car you worry about gas mileage - it's purely a fun weekend ride.
Otherwise, a piece of crap, but, I bought it used cheap, and it's fun for what it is.
