The Proton 1-Tank Adventure is back for 2019, and this year’s edition is kicking off tomorrow and happening throughout the weekend. Like last year’s inaugural edition, participants will experience the sights, sounds and cuisine of Malaysia while trying to squeeze out as many kilometres possible from a tank of petrol.

Comprising three preliminary rounds and a grand final, the contest is offering over RM100,000 worth of prizes. Participants include owners of the 2019 Proton Iriz, Persona and Saga, as well as some celebrities and media members. We’ve assembled a paultan.org team and Hafriz Shah will be taking part – stay tuned for updates.

Last year, the event focused on routes in Peninsular Malaysia, but 2019 fuel efficiency competition will feature two rounds in East Malaysia – one each in Sabah and Sarawak. The grand final will see participants embark on a big journey from Kota Bharu to Johor Bharu using just a single tank of fuel!

As its name implies, the main aim of the competition is to demonstrate the real world fuel efficiency of Proton’s current range of cars. Participants will drive the Iriz, Persona and Saga over a variety of roads and traffic conditions to arrive at FC figures that Proton says can be replicated by other owners on a daily basis.

“Proton would like to demonstrate the efficiency of our cars by embarking on some epic journeys around the country. These figures won’t be obtained in a controlled environment but in driving conditions owners experience every day. Ultimately, we will prove the current range of Proton cars can deliver fuel economy figures that will help keep running costs low,” said Proton CEO Li Chunrong.

“We would like to use the 1 Tank Adventure to remind Malaysians there are many factors to consider when buying a car. Proton has updated its entire range in 2019 and this is a great opportunity to travel around the country to show everyone the result of our hard work. With revised styling, improved quality, better handling and ride comfort as well as higher equipment levels and value for money, we have models to suit every budget and need,” he added.
