So Volkswagen has this new car, The L1

The prototype was shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show a few months ago – that will get an estimated 170-230 miles per gallon.

Give this car a drink of gas and it will go 416 miles without a stop!

The accomplishment here is a diesel engine that’s small and powerful, and set in a very light frame. The “L1,” as it’s called, is very little, weighing approximately 837 pounds with a 2.6-gallon fuel tank.

German engineers were justly proud. This is, the company claims, a level of fuel efficiency never seen before in the auto world.
