After 190km of several days’ practice in heavy city traffic; 90km on a ferry drive to the Subic staging point that had us in an hour-long traffic jam on NLEX followed by a blistering catch up sprint on SCTEX; and then the 170km STV Auto Rally run between Zambales and Bataan that included a spirited climb up Mt. Samat; those 450km of diverse driving modes burned 40liters of run-of-the-mill diesel fuel.

That’s an average of 11.25km/l and a cost of around P2.50 per kilometer. Not bad for all the use we got out of her.
