    Eco Drive Day in Austria: 3.20 l / 100 km (73.5 mpg US, 31 km/L)



    Mitsubishi Motors Austria organized an Eco Drive Day with the Space Star 1.0 in Marchfeld (east of the capital Vienna). Six teams had to complete a test track of 96 km. The winner scored 3,20 l / 100 km, other results were 3,46 l / 100 km and 3,55 l / 100 km. The team with 3,94 l / 100 km ended last.

    These are the first eco-driving results we've seen for the 1.0L engine, I think. Nice to see Mitsu is still using this approach to promote the car in the latest markets.

    talldino: how are you finding these tidbits? I'm not a Facebook user -- are you following some Mitsu FB pages?

    A little more context about the event, from the FB page ...


    • temperature: ranged from 10-20 degrees C (50 - 68F)
    • wind: "brisk" southeast


    Too bad we don't know about the route/terrain/average speed.

    Some conversions of the results ...

    Result, L/100 km
    km/L
    MPG (US)
    MPG (Imp.)
    3.2 31.3 73.5 88.3
    3.46 28.9 68 81.6
    3.55 28.2 66.3 79.6
    3.94 25.4 59.7 71.7

    Hi MetroMPG,

    No I'm not a Facebook fan. I use www.mitsubishi-motors-europe.com as a starting point and click the countries where they speak and write languages that I more or less understand.
