A journalist from New Zealand decided to take a Suzuki Swift from Auckland to Wellington and back on just one tank of fuel.

He failed, but he only fell short by 37 miles before the Swift 1.3 DDiS's tank ran dry - meaning it went for 764 (1230 km)miles on one 42-litre tank of diesel.

Amazingly, that's 83.4mpg(35.4km/l) - a 16.1mpg(7 km) improvement on the car's official combined figure.

The driver, Donn Anderson, reckons he might have made it home had he not encountered high winds and torrential rain.

Sure enough, a Swift DDiS has indeed achieved a higher mpg figure, in the UK. Another journalist, Ross Durkin of Fleet World magazine, entered the annual MPG Marathon last year and achieved 86.4mpg over a 360-mile route.

No doubt,when Swift can give 24-25 kpl in my hands then it can give 35 in the hands of any sane driver.

BUT STILL SWIFT IS FAR BEHIND THE HIGHEST FE RECORDED BY HYUNDAI VERNA 1.5 CRDi..
anyone remember that 42.xx kpl achieved by Verna?

That's mils and smiles rally organised by Hyundai itself and Verna recorded the figures like 38,39,40 and one person did even 42 kpl in the same rally.
Even Hyundai used to mention this FE in their ads too for Verna.Some 2-3 years back.
