Please allow me to introduce myself......
Newbie here not very "post" experienced and I suck at typing, having that out the way, drive a 98 Saturn SOHC/5 speed, box stock best 39mpg@65-70 and I just picked up a 96 300E diesel, trip from Lubbock to Pittsburgh got 41.3@75-80,32.2@80, and 33.5@70-75. Am an A/P mechanic, former Ford driveability tech/ASE Tech. Anyone out there done a WVO mod on one of these Benz? I'm gonna begin my research on the injection system on the car whilst looking for a good set of factory manuals or alternatives..........any suggestions to prevent "re-inventing the wheel would be appreciated.:thumbup:

Welcome to the site! Sounds like a fun project you got there.

The Saturn has a lot going for it, too: respectable aerodynamics (which you can improve on), a good engine, light weight. Although the SW isn't the most efficient car in its class, they're good on gas, cheap, and have huge cargo and towing capacity. If I needed a big wagon and couldn't afford a Prius, I'd get an SW1.
