Super frugal Lupo sets another record

VOLKSWAGEN'S super-frugal Lupo 3L TDI has set another fuel economy world record after travelling nearly 3,000 miles through 20 European countries on less than 100 Euros (£70) worth of fuel.

Driven by Austrian journalist Gerhard Plattner, the car began its journey in Oslo, Norway, and finished in The Hague in the Netherlands.

He required 90.94 Euros to cover the distance, corresponding to an average fuel consumption of 101.6mpg and an average speed of 50mph.

Unfortunately, the Lupo 3L TDI is not on sale in the UK.
