The truth behind the numbers of the Mitsubishi Mirage G4 Eco Drive Marathon.

The Goal:

Challenge the Mirage G4’s mileage claim of 21 km/L.

The Result:

We drove from Laoag, Ilocos Norte all the way to General Santos and back to Davao using the Philippine Nautical Highway route on just one full tank. This is the first time ever a car company has done something this ambitious.
