The Proton 1-Tank Adventure has proven to be quite an eye-opening event, particularly among those who own a Proton car. The two-day event saw participants drive a total distance of 640 km through a combination of back roads and highway, all to see if the cars could make the entire journey on a single tank of fuel.

Now, our very own Hafriz Shah drove a Proton Saga 1.3 Premium CVT and managed to use just 33.79 litres of petrol (18.3 km per litre). That in itself is not a bad figure, but the highest figure recorded for the Saga category was a whopping 28.0 km per litre. On average, the Saga group averaged 22.2 km per litre.

Also part of the drive were Persona 1.6 CVT and Iriz 1.3 CVT models, which managed a best result of 25.0 km per litre (19.6 km per litre on average) and 21.1 km per litre (18.0 km per litre on average) respectively. Still think Proton cars are incapable of being fuel efficient? In this video, we ask owners whether there’s any truth about Proton cars being fuel guzzlers. Let’s hear what they have to say, shall we?

Meanwhile, watch the video below to see how the event unfolded, with Hafriz also sharing some vital fuel saving tips.
