    Here are results of another economy run. Mitsu seems to love doing this to show off the car. Only this time, after the economy run they turned the assembled scribes loose on a race track as well.

    It looks like the main road between KL and Philea Resort goes up & down - elevation changes within ~100-~300 ft above sea level.

    Temperature on Jan 8,2013 in KL:

    Mean Temperature 29 C
    Max Temperature 33 C
    Min Temperature 25 C

    No problemo.

    The only critical bit of info missing is whether they were all CVT cars, or also some manuals. I only saw CVT shift levers in the video.

    Update: this Mirage review is from notes that 2 of the cars were manuals, the rest were CVT's. Malaysia: The new Mirage goes on a new direction (car- carmalaysia.my)

    The full review includes a few paragraphs describing the economy run competition.
