Mercedes-Benz 280 Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz 280 here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Ripper car, but no gas

    YOU'LL find it hard to get anyone to convert your car to LPG. The demand for kits for more current models has the LPG industry working flat out, and I'm sure it won't have time to develop a kit for an older car such as yours.

  • For what it's worth

    UNLESS you're passionate about the car I would recommend selling it. Old cars deteriorate rapidly if not well looked after, and that means regularly driving them, regularly changing the oil and so on. If you're not an old-car enthusiast it's best to sell it to someone who is. Your Benz, though it would no doubt be attractive to a Mercedes enthusiast, will increase in value to any great extent. The cost of keeping it is likely to exceed any increase in value that may occur. I think you'd get $6000-$7000 for it depending on its condition. There are two ways of selling it: advertise it in the specialist press, or try contacting a Mercedes-Benz club.

    THOSE Mercedes had a body that gave good crash protection, but your sons would be safer in more modern cars with airbags.

  • Finding the right fuel

    THE Valiants need PULP with an upper-cylinder lubricant such as Valvemaster or Flashlube, which can be found at your local servo. Your Benz should run satisfactorily on PULP with no need for an additive.
