Best fuel consumption @100 km/h speed 2.158 l/100km.

Best standing mile 199.8 km/h

picture after two liter tank:


Its quite fast if needed .



For summer 2014 Lupo will get a 1.9 tdi with about 350 hp and target is to beat some standing mile records, I am hoping lupo will reach 300 km/h club. I am not doing the modifications I just gave the car for good purpose. I hoping speed freaks will start to think aeromodding serious option for more speed after next summer .

All the way to Deutchland and back? That's quite a journey! Good luck

Out of curiosity I checked the prices here, and they are in the 2000-4400€ range, so similar to what you found (most are imported from D anyway).

Cheapest Lupo 3l are under 2000€ in germany but usually there are some minor faults in them. For this first 3L I try to find good one at least from technigue perspective so Full service history will be big plus.

Lupo 3L, one of my favourite eco cars, nice interior space from driver and rear passengers, nice looking(for this type of car), nice braking, handling with eco off is not bad.
I have recently done a turbo, intake manifold, egr and intercooler service on one lupo 3L, very nice engine, i recommend you to test the front arms, the turbo and check intercooler for leaking in the upper intercooler pipe.
But to be honnest, i dont think you can get 2L/100 unless your driving very slow at highway, its hard to tune a very well tuned car, to do that, you need to know a lot about aero and mechanic, but i dont believe in miracles.

I second that.

I've tried and tried to get my kilometerage below 3.2L/100k but cannot. Not for a full tank anyway. And i cant trust my scangauge, not with a diesel.
But it does go to show how INefficient most cars are. Which unfortunately is the majority of cars.

But, on a positive note, it also shows that there is major scope for mpg improvement if the driver is willing to cop the f*** on and stop wellying it!!

Thats a neat way of getting several tanks (or maybe just one) in the fuel log from day 1...

Good luck.

Vekke, what transmission is it? I think I read somewhere that all of the 3L's had an automatic, but I've seen a few offers which claimed that it's a manual, and in 1-2 cases the picture of the interior actually suggested that is true. I also found a forum where someone described swapping the auto for a manual. It was also mentioned there that this is the only way to have a manual 3L.

+1 I thought it was an early or adapted DSG style one.

We will have to wait until the end of the road trip
