2012 Volkswagen Passat TDI Sets Single-Tank Diesel Distance Record
Read the full story Â»
I.e. still short of the Japanese record tank distance in a Prius (not a plug-in): exceeding 3000 kilometers. And that includes many commute day engine warmup cycles.
Interesting.. would have been a time when I said, wow 84.1 MPG.
I'm so spoiled now and 84.1MPG would be a very very bad day.
Yeah its better than I would get a 1500mile trip, but then I'd have to drive an inefficient car all year. For a 1500 mile trip, I'd fly (coach).
Best "tank" for a Volt is about 14435 miles. But of course that includes plugging in.
And of couse a BEV... well there is no gas at all.
No fair...it would be more equivalent to getting 120 EV-only miles on a Volt.
Or the 2200+ mile tank in an Original Insight.
120 EV-only miles on a volt is 3.4x EPA. The 84.1 is not even 2x of the EPA highway of a TDI. In pure EV in a volt has already two people that exceeded 70 (i.e. 2x).
That is REALYY cool!
Sorry, this forum is for DIESEL topics, lets' keep it that way!
18.5 gallon fuel tank. I wish my Prius had a bigger tank.
Put a bigger tank in any car and it will drive a long distance
