Adventure seeker, Garry Sowerby, and his wife, Lisa Calvi, hope to set a new world record in a 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel. Their goal is to drive across Canada, from Vancouver to Halifax, using the least amount of diesel fuel. Their 10-day adventure, which began last week, will see the couple driving over 6,000 kms, along the Trans-Canada highway, from coast to coast.
“I’ll be trapped in the car with my husband, Garry Sowerby, for 6,000 kilometres,” said Lisa Calvi. “Over the next ten days, we will be feather-footing our way from Vancouver to Halifax, driving the speed limit – attempting to set a new record for lowest fuel consumption. Our goal is to use the least amount of fuel on a cross-Canada drive. We want to set a record that will be difficult for someone else to beat.”
The 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Diesel boasts a fuel consumption rating of 4.2 L/100km on the highway.
