Murphy to drive Holden in AA Energywise Rally

Murphy

Greg Murphy is due to lead Holden’s fuel efficiency quest in this year’s AA Energywise Rally. Hot off the track from the 13th round of the V8 Supercar Champs Greg will team up with journalist John Maslin in the Astra CDTi.

Holden has also entered its new Epica diesel a mid-sized sedan which will be driven by journalist Robert Barry. The 4 cylinder 2.0-litre diesel variant is the latest addition to Holden’s growing diesel range and delivers fuel economy of 7.6 litres per 100km.

Holden is developing more alternate fuel options and fuel saving technologies than at any time in its history. Recently the company announced that it will introduce Active Fuel Management on all of its V8 Automatics in early 2009. In a combination of town and highway driving, the technology can deliver fuel savings of up to one litre per 100 kilometres, with potential for even better results at constant cruising speeds.

In another fuel efficiency development, Holden has also just announced that it has upgraded its Alloytec V6 engine on Omega and Berlina models within the VE Commodore range. The improvement offers fuel savings (ADR 81/01) of up to 0.4 litres per 100 kilometres for petrol models and 1.3 litres per 100 kilometres for LPG.
