A Skoda Fabia Greenline II has managed to cover an incredible 1,246 miles on a single tank of diesel on a journey from Austria to Denmark and back again.
The Journey was completed by an eco-driving specialist called Gerhard Plattner and consisted mainly of motorways including Germany’s longest road, the A7.
The car was a normal Fabia Greenline II powered by a 73bhp 1.2L diesel engine and equipped with a standard 45L (9.89 gallon) fuel tank. It’s claimed combined economy figure is 83.1mpg but on the journey it averaged 127.9mpg
Plattner said, “The Skoda Greenline models are perfect for fuel-efficient driving. In light of the current fuel prices, not only is that important for one’s own wallet, but also for lowering environmental pollution. With a fuel consumption well below the specified norm, I want to show that besides the car manufacturers, every driver can contribute to further reduce this environmental pollution. It already starts with small details such as the proper tyre pressure.”
No details have been released about how long the journey took though.
