Polo BlueMotion – how high can we get it

Polo BlueMotion – how high can we get it

I’ve just collected the most frugal car on the market, the Volkswagen Polo BlueMotion. It claims to use just 3.8l of diesel per 100km. And it’s not a hybrid. So, I thought that because everyone’s going on about how frugal the Polo BlueMotion is that I should see how un-frugal I can make it. I could pack the boot with sandbags, chuck some podgy friends in the passenger seats, let down the low-rolling-resistance tyres and drive around Mt Wellington go kart track in first gear…with the windows down and air conditioning on. Perhaps I can set a record!5
