71 mpg VW diesel


I could go back and forth to work on less than a gallon of fuel.


Volkswagen announces new 1.2L three-cylinder diesel; should push new Polo to 71 mpg
by Sam Abuelsamid (RSS feed) on May 1st 2010 at 1:25PM

Volkswagen has officially unveiled a new three-cylinder turbodiesel engine at the annual Vienna Motor Symposium. The new 1.2-liter engine features the same common-rail fuel injection systems and basic architecture as VW's 1.6-liter and 2.0-liter inline fours.

The new engine produces 74 horsepower and 133 pound-feet of torque at just 2,000 rpm. When VW unveiled the new Polo at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, a concept version of the next generation Bluemotion model was shown with this engine. The three-cylinder Polo is expected to be rated at 71.3 miles per gallon (U.S.) and 87 grams / kilometer of CO2 emissions on the EU combined test cycle.

Life changes, so roll with it, not against it.
