New Member - MB 190 2.5 Turbodiesel owner
Let me say it's great to be here - you have a great site going. About me - I'm a metallurgical engineer by education, automotive hobbyist by nature. I've been "into" Mercedes diesel cars for several years now. My current ride started life as a 1993 MB 190E 2.6 (gasoline powered). I have swapped in a Mercedes 2.5 Turbodiesel engine (OM602) and a 5-speed manual trans from an '85 MB 190D 2.2. The rearend is currently a 3.07 ratio.

I'm also a homebrew biodiesel guy. A friend and I make biodiesel from used fryer oil and blend it with petro-diesel.

One of the challenges I face is getting accurate mpg readings running the bio/dino diesel mix, as I don't have a way to accurately measure the amount of biodiesel being added to my tank. I can usually get close (within a gallon or so), but not close enough for real accuracy.

Are there any good solutions for measuring diesel fuel usage (multiple flow-meters?) on one of these older mechanical diesel pumps?

Anyway, I've got a million thoughts running through my head - just glad to be a member for now.

Hi Jetmugg,
I have a line on a very nice 1993 E320 with a blown engine, and a 1993 mercedes 300e 2.5 turbo diesel that was rear ended and totaled. I'm thinking of putting the diesel into the gasser body. What are the key 'need to knows'? Both cars are automatics.
