    Approx 18-19 liters per 100 kilometers. I think, if i would drive more relaxed it could be less.

    welcome malte

    in germany they use liters per 100 km instead of miles per gallon/km per liter

    the volkswagen lupo was named the "3 liter car" because it only used 3 liters of diesel fuel for 100 kilometer
    thats 78.40 mpg

    18 liters/100 km is 5.5 km per liter or 13.07 mpg



    vw lupo commercial :)

    On my trip to Europe in 2015, my brother & I rented a VW Up. Very small compared to what I owned at the time(2013 GMC Sierra Z71 4x4). I think the VW Up would fit in the bed. I was pleasantly surprised at how it drove. Had no problem keeping up with traffic. Had just enough room for 2 carry-on bags in the back seat and a full sized suitcase in the back. It wasn't a diesel, but got very good fuel mileage.
