    Here are the Complete Results of the 2017 DOE-Petron Eco Run

    A few days ago, we released the initial results of the 2017 Department of Energy (DOE)-Petron Eco Run, in which 52 vehicles--equally split between the diesel- and gasoline-powered ones--participated in, with the 2.0-liter SsangYong Rodius topping the former at 33.12 kilometers/liter (km/L) and the 1.3-liter Kia Picanto leading the latter at 29.23 km/L. We also mentioned that the DOE will release a complete list of all the cars that participated in the Eco Run along with their respective fuel consumption ratings which we will publish as soon as we receive it. Well, the DOE has finally released it and here are the results as written by the agency.

    "For the diesel entries, the Volkswagen Golf GTS was the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the sedan category with a fuel economy rating of 27.91 kilometers/liter (km/L). In the SUV category, the Ssangyong Rodius topped the list with a rating of 33.12 km/L


    Toyota Innova had the highest rating of 21.60 km/L for the MPV category, while Mahindra Supro ranked the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the pickup category with a rating of 22.52 km/L.


    For the gasoline entries, Kia Picanto posted the highest rating of 29.23 km/L for the sedan category, while the Honda BR-V with a rating of 22.22 km/L emerged the best in the SUV category. 


    The Chevrolet Trax led the MPV category with a rating of 17.98 km/L, while the BAIC Freedom ranked the most fuel-efficient in the pickup category with a rating of 15.10 km/L."


    2017 DOE-Petron Eco Run


    Perhaps as a matter of simplification, the DOE classified hatchback entries like the Kia Picanto and Chevrolet Spark as 'sedans,' but what we find slightly disconcerting is that it classified the SsangYong Rodius as an SUV when it is clearly an MPV. Is it because that's what SsangYong Philippines calls it whereas everyone else, like SsangYong Ireland and SsangYong Germany and even local automotive sites, calls it an MPV? Also,  as you'll find later at the bottom, what's with the 'Guest Vehicle Entries' list?Did these vehicles join the Eco Run but their fuel efficiency rating isn't to be taken seriously, or in the local parlance, saling-pusa, hence the blank spaces under the Engine Displacement column?

    Anyway, you'll find the complete results of the Eco Run below, arranged by the vehicles' fuel economy rating and starting with the most fuel-efficient vehicle in its fuel-type on top. Perhaps you can base your future vehicle purchase here, what with the looming excise tax adjustment taking place next year.
