smart fortwo “Overall Best MPG” winner

For the third year in a row, Mick Linford and co-driver Ella Flynn were awarded the “Overall Best MPG” title at the 2011 ALD Automotive Shell FuelSave MPG Marathon.

The pair, driving a 54bhp smart fortwo cdi, navigated their way around Wiltshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset, covering a total of 370.9 miles in two days. By the end of the event, the skills of “Eco Mick” had yielded an average of 99.24mpg (2.8 L/km) – 15 % better than the official figure, and 12.84mpg more efficient than the runner-up.

“I was determined to break the magical 100mpg mark, but the weather and one particularly hilly section was against us. To get so close is a double-edged sword – but I’m delighted that the smart delivered these incredible results despite the challenges,” explained Mick.
