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.
The E 300 BlueTEC Hybrid is powered by a 204hp diesel engine mated to a 27hp electric motor, allowing it to sprint from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 7.5 seconds and to reach a top speed of 150 mph (241 km/h).
