This is incredible. Auto journalist Andrew Frankel and a relief driver drove a standard UK spec Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid from North Africa to UK non-stop on one tank of fuel. The E-Class has an 80 liter fuel tank.
It covered 1,968 km from Tangier in Morocco to Goodwood in the UK and averaged 73.6 mpg UK (61.2 mpg US or 3.1 l/100 km). In total, they covered two continents, four countries and three time zones, spending 27 hours on the road.
The trip went through heavy rain, heat, rush hour traffic jams and elevation changes. All in one tank.
