Got 2.25 L/100 km 104.36 mpg (US) at 80 km/h avg speed

Did some quick test run to see the cars current performance with latest mods on.

Results 2.25 l/100km at about 80 km/h avg speed. Did no drafting on this short tank. Now the car starts to have all the planned major aeromods done, only the fron wheel skirts are missing but current 80 mm groung clearance that will be little bit challenge to make them but will build them anyway.

Anyway car start to get closer its target consumption which still is 2 liter at 100 km/h avg speed.

More pictures about the cars current state at facebook:

2.25L at 80 kmh is Incredible, Good work !
I like the grill on your car, it looks like it is designed to shut and open, it that your work or is it just a immobile stock grill?

Yes full push and glide driving but the uphills. push and glide with load. Push from 80 to 95 and glide back to 80.

Front grill block is self made as most of other parts. At the moment the adjusting is not build there yet but there is that option for later.

Nice work.


But seeing what it takes to get it in this small car, makes me ever more suspicious about 2.8 L/100km @ 60mph claims in a Passat ...

You do have to remember that my engine and also other parts of the car have 260000+kilometers in the odometer. I believe that specially the turbo is not in mint condition after those miles. Plans are to change it to newer version and get better efficiency at the same time.

The Passat avg speed was only 40 MPH or so. At that speed lupo would hit 117 MPG on stock condition.

What are your Pulse and glide times in seconds?
I keep engine in neutral and idling while glide. Pulse is 3.5-4 seconds (80-100 kmh) and glide is around 12 seconds (100-80 kmh) in level ground (two persons in car). Onboard computer shows 3.9L/100 after 490km driving. Computer is optimistic about 0.5L, so real number is around 4.4L/100km

62 kph or only 38.5mph apparently, rather than 60 mph ...
That throws a different light on it.

Their performance in Holland (The Netherlands) under real conditions was far less impressive :
25.5 KM/L 1,020 KM'S driven - on just 40 litres of fuel.
That's 3,92 L/100km.

I've had Snert the replacement Volvo down to 3.999 L/100km ... with only the tyre pressure being increased.
