Honda sets new efficiency record with 100mpg Civic run
Hello Folks, Just came across the below news of World record run by Honda Civic.
On an epic road trip across the EU, a Honda Civic Tourer breaks the Guinness World Record for fuel economy
With an official consumption figure of 74.3mpg, Honda's Civic Tourer with the 1.6-litre i-DTEC diesel engine isn't exactly thirsty. But on a huge journey of 8,387 miles across the EU, the Civic Tourer achieved a return of 100.31 miles per gallon. That's a figure more than 25% over the official consumption figure, and it now holds the Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption on a trip visiting all 24 continuous EU countries.
Rules stated that the experiment car was an unmodified, road-going model, using regular fuel and brimming the tank at each fill-up ensuring no weight advantage. The car was driven by the same two colleagues from Honda's R&D department and between them they drove an average of 7.5 hours a day. They began in Aalst, Belgium, and after visiting all 24 EU countries returned to their start point.
