Mercedes Benz sprints ahead with fuel efficiency

Published on Wednesday 21 August 2013 in Van News

Here at Vanarama we are not the only van professionals to have been bowled-over by the class-leading reliability and impressive running costs of Mercedes Benz Vans. In fact, the 2014 Commonwealth Games will be benefitting from Mercedes' infamous reliability as Glasgow-based Fairways Group, the company that helps maintain bowling greens for the Games, has turned to the manufacturer to add two Sprinter 313 CDI vans, as well as a smaller Citan 108 CDI, to the 16 Sprinters it already has in service.

Whether you run just one van or 100, great fuel economy is essential to help keep business operating costs to a minimum. The 313CDI is 15 per cent more economical than the equivalent model from the previous Sprinter range, this equates to an extra 4.5 miles per gallon, which might not sound that much, but over the lifetime of a vehicle, can really add up.

The Mercedes Sprinters are already playing a key role in the preparation of the lawns at the Kelvingrove Bowling Centre, which will host the competition for Commonwealth Games Gold Medals next summer.

First launched on the European market in 1995, the Sprinter redefined the van segment with its modern design, carlike performance, and low operating cost. Click here if you are interested in a Mercedes Sprinter yourself and are keen to find out more.
