None of those lupo records beat even the one set by dan's crew a few years back in the prius, not to mention the most recent in the insight, though most know of the lupo antics, I think,
I posted the Lupo figures in response to comments about the apparant dearth of recent MPG records on the books. I was simply surprised that it hadn't been mentioned.
Also, not to belittle Dan's achievements or anyone else's in the Insight Marathon, but I find the Lupo's records a bit more impressive given they reflect (as far as I can tell) more realistic driving conditions. The Lupo's 80-day round-the-world trip covered 20,699 miles at an average speed of 53.1 MPH and still came in close to a 100 MPG average.
