Sharing is caring!

Peugeot is searching for the most fuel efficient driver in Ireland. Celebrating yet another Guinness World Record for lowest fuel consumption, Peugeot has announced details of its How Low Can You Go? competition. A €3,000 shopping spree will be presented to whoever records the best fuel consumption figure in Ireland.

To take part in the Peugeot competition, entrants are invited to take a test drive in the World Record holding 308 HDi diesel at participating Peugeot Dealer nationwide. Each driver’s average consumption over a minimum of 20km will be calculated and submitted to the competition website The winner will be announced week commencing Monday, 30th November.

Peugeot smashed yet another Guinness World Record with the 308 HDi, when husband and wife, John and Helen Taylor, circumnavigated the UK in a Peugeot 308 1.6 HDi loaded with holiday luggage, with an amazing average economy of 2.23 litres / 100km (126.8MPG). The couple previously set a world record in 2008 in Australia, when they achieved 1919km from a single tank in their 308 HDi.

Mark Hayes, Peugeot in Ireland’s Marketing Manager commented: “For a while now we’ve been telling customers that our low-CO2 Peugeot vehicles are very fuel efficient and great fun to drive. We wanted to capitalise on this most recent achievement by John and Helen Taylor, which fully illustrates the fantastic fuel economy in the 308 HDi and the savings it brings. People will be amazed when they test drive our 308 HDi and see the economy they can get. Already, in week-one, the competition is hotting up with consumption figures recorded as low as 3.9l/100km (74.3MPG). It would be fantastic to match or even surpass the World Record, here in Ireland.”
