.29 cD, car the size of a US compact, small diesel, about 108 miles per US gallon, sounds plausible to me, it would probably get an "EPA" score better than a TDi golf. Could probably get close to the same in a VW Lupo diesel with heavy hypermiling.

The route looks like it might have been carefully picked for staying out of the hills, impose a topo map on it, and you'll probably find they go round them or up valleys.

I think the article is bull****, that's certainly no "world record".

i'm w/ya fully. we've had some GS members ACHIEVE 100mpg, but not avg that, especially over the course of 3700 miles.

and you're right, it may not even be a world record.
