We’re talking about about a journey from Nantes, France to Copenhagen, Denmark, which has been completed without touching the fuel filler cap - the feat was supervised by DEKRA.

The Golf TDI BlueMotion is powered by a four-cylinder 1.6-liter TDI unit delivering 110 HP, with the compact using a 50-liter tank.

“The "Think Blue. Eco Ride." shows that the standard consumption figure based on the NEDC driving cycle, which is already extremely low at 3.2 liters per 100 kilometers and 85 grams of CO2 per kilometer, can even be beaten. Drivers from the Volkswagen Driving Experience succeeded in reaching a verified value of 2.92 liters of diesel per 100 kilometers in normal traffic over a driving time of 20 hours and 45 minutes,” a VW statement explains
