How far can the Isuzu D-Max run with one full tank? Isuzu Philippines revealed that the sturdy pickup truck can go as far as 1,844 kilometers with a tank full of diesel fuel.
The Isuzu D-Max traveled from Matnog in Sorsogon and passed through the provinces of Cagayan and Ilocos Norte before it ran out of fuel in Paniqui, Tarlac.
Putting the D-Max to the test is the last of Isuzu's three-leg challenge to measure the fuel efficiency of the Japanese brand's vehicles.
In the first leg, the Isuzu NHR light commercial truck ran a total of 972.4 kilometers from Pagudpud to Naga City. The second leg involving an Isuzu Crosswind XL showed that the Asian utility vehicle can travel 1,190 kilometers from Cauayan, Isabela to the Quezon Province. The Isuzu vehicles used in the challenge were filled with Caltex Diesel with Techron D.
"I am confident that after three legs of the Isuzu Challenge, we have been able to convince the commercial-vehicle market that Isuzu vehicles are truly fuel-efficient," said Isuzu Philippines president Ryoji Yamazaki. "I believe we've also shown that our vehicles are very much compatible with Philippine roads. Their legendary durability is what makes them very popular, most especially among overseas Filipino workers, who value their hard-earned money down to the last peso."
The Isuzu Challenge is part of the Isuzu Diesel Mission, an ongoing campaign for the year aimed at demonstrating the fuel efficiency and environment-friendliness of Isuzu vehicles.
