VW 1999 Polo Classic 1.6 Manual Petrol fuel consumption data
For all those who want to know what fuel consumption a 1999 VW Polo Classic sedan will give can get the real info here.  Most driving was done on 70% highway and suburban traffic. None was done in city driving or peak traffic time.  The car was never pushed above 120 km/h or 75 mph on the highway, actually, most driving was done at 100-110 km/h (62-68 mph).

So far the average fuel consumption for the Polo Classic 1.6 is 8.6 L/100 km or 27.35 mpg (US) and 32.85 mpg (UK). Which considering the car is 18 years old quite good.

It hope this will help a lot of buyers considering an old car like this. We all worry about fuel consumption and anything above 10 L/100km or below 22 mpg(US) or 28 mpg (UK) is considered high.  I must say I was quite surprised how low it was, especially the mileage done. The car does use some oil, but not a lot. We have to add about 500 ml every 4 months.

Merrell hiking shoes showing cracks in quality

I have been a supporter of Merrell shoes for quite a long time, actually about 10 years. Their comfort was amazing as well as build quality. My first pair was hiking boots and I wore them until they fell apart, I must admit that the sole wore through before the top started coming apart.  I then bought hiking or trail shoes. I think the style was Merrell Vibram, not sure but that was written on the side of the hiking shoe.  Anyway, who cares, I don't hike or go on trails.  They are mainly used in and around at home. I also don't do any gardening with them by the way.

So all in all I don't have a lot of wear and tear as can be seen on the amount of rubber left on the new pair of Merrell Hiking shoes.

What really disturbed me is how badly the new Merrell Hiking shoes are put together. Put it this way, my old Merrell's had 5 years of walking on them, and there is not much wrong with them other than the backend plastic started to crack. Also my laces are worn out which can…

Mercedes Benz W203 2001-2007 worst merc to buy ever

Let me defend myself first. I am a merc fan. If I thought it was an investment I would buy a new one, but it happens that I know a little more about money since school days and realized that a new car is a waste of money.

I started looking for a good second hand car
This had led me on the adventure of looking for a good second hand car that is comfortable and reliable. Another important factor is fuel consumption. It must be low since I am in no mood forking out half my salary in fuel costs.

The C-Class size fits my requirements perfectly so I started looking at various models and technical specifications. I was quite baffled at the amount of information that is available on mercs compared to other vehicles which is great if you are planning to buy a second hand car and do some of the maintenance yourself.

I think the best source of Mercedes videos and information is https://mercedessource.com/. I think Kent is very realistic and has enormous knowledge of these vehicles and its worth…
