To highlight Volkswagen’s highly efficient, eco-friendly turbocharged diesel (TDI) engine variants and its equally powerful and economical TSI engines, Volkswagen Philippines held the second leg of the Fuel Eco Fun Run last November 20 with its partner, Pilipinas Shell Petroleum.

The second leg was participated in by a mix of media and existing Volkswagen owners of the Polo, Touran, and Beetle, and each competed to set the record for the most economical fuel mileage achieved.

The results were verified by Antonio Basco and Alexis Matel Carlos, representatives from the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Division of the Department of Energy.
