Two members of Honda’s European R &D, Fergal Mcgrath and Julian Warren drove the Honda Civic Tourer 1.6 i-DTEC. Notably, the distance travelled is similar to the team driving to Australia from their home in the United Kingdom, stopping JUST NINE TIMES TO REFUEL.
The car achieved an incredible average 1500km (932 miles) on each tank of fuel, at a total fuel cost for the whole journey of just 645 Euros or £459.
The team set out on their epic road trip from Aalst, Belgium, on Monday June 1st, navigating the continent in a clockwise direction. They returned to their start point on Thursday June 25th, recording the incredible fuel economy figures which exceed the Tourer’s specified efficiency of 3.8 liters per 100km (74.3 miles per gallon), by more than 25%. Kudos Honda!
