Africa To England On Just a Single Tank Of Fuel A Mercedes-Benz E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID has travelled the 1968 kilometres from Tangier in North Africa to Goodwood in England without having to refuel - and on reaching its destination still had enough fuel left for a further 160 kilometres. "Is it possible to drive a Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon from North Africa to the UK on just a single tank of fuel?" British journalist Andrew Frankel discovered the answer this question by conducting a very challenging experiment of his own.

Review - Hyundai I30 SR

i30sr9The small car class in Australia is hotly contested and one of the most popular in the class is the Hyundai i30, having driven quite a few of it’s competitors including the Holden Cruze SRiV the week before I was very interested to see how the i30 shaped up.

Famed for being basic and therefore almost unbreakable, its reputation as an offroad capable vehicle is legendary.

Nowadays, however, with few venturing into anything barely deeper than a roadside puddle, how does a brand keep interest? Limited editions are the answer.
