Where did you find info from? I have been searching off and on for the last few weeks and cant find anything except for 1 post on this forum who claimed 18-19 MPG.

I wish I could remember specifically- it would be better if I kept track of these things!). One place I remember looking was a site called "fuelly" (that name is in my notes at least). My impression has been that the mileage varies some by year, and of course by engine, how loaded up it is, etc.

From my notes: Avg MPG for sprinter: acc to fuelly, varies a lot by year (Best (>20) 2014, 2017; Worst 2012 (http://www.fuelly.com/car/mercedes-benz/sprinter)

But, fuelly also posted a 34 mpg rate for the Nissan, so I'm not sure how accurate they are!

Were you looking for sprinter or NV mpg?

- A potential seller recently told me that his 2015, 2500, 144" home-made sprinter conversion was getting about 23-24 mpg

- A MBZ dealer told me awhile back that the older dodge freightliners were getting about 22 (that may have been empty?)

Hope this helps. Hope you'll also consider posting any other good resources you may find!

Looking specifically for the 2019 and up gas 4 cylinder engine passenger van. I want to get the 1500 series which I doubt I will find any info for.
