DOE: All Systems Go for 13th Fuel Economy Run

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Department of Energy (DOE) in cooperation with Petron Corporation is all revved up for the 2017 DOE Fuel Economy Run to be held on November 20-21 at Clark, Pampanga.

Already on its 13th run since its inception in 2002, the Fuel Economy Run serves as a platform for the DOE as well as the consumers in determining the fuel consumption rating of different brand-new vehicles available in the market based on actual highway driving conditions.

This annual event invites participants to test the fuel efficiency of sedans, SUV’s, MPV’s and pickups of the different car manufacturing companies, brands and models.

Participating entries will be divided into two categories: those vehicles running on diesel and those running on gas. Each vehicle will have a driver, a navigator, and an auditor who makes sure that the performance and settings of the car strictly follow the activity’s guidelines throughout the whole run.

This year, participants will take a route with a standard distance of 216.6 kilometers. The flag-off will start at the Petron Service Station Clark, pass through SCTEX and TPLEX Binalonan, then make a U-turn to get back to the Petron Service Station Clark.

Announcement of results will immediately follow to determine which vehicle from each category is the most fuel-efficient. Each participating vehicle’s fuel economy rating will be recorded in kilometers per liter.

The 2017 Fuel Economy Run is in line with the DOE’s “E-Power Mo” Campaign which gives consumers the power of choice in putting premium on energy efficiency when it comes to purchasing vehicles.

Over the years, the Fuel Economy Run has gained a bigger following which shows that car companies realize the positive impact fuel efficiency has on their vehicles and how consumers start to consider this as one of the main criteria in choosing their ride.
