About the WesBank Fuel Economy Tour in partnership with FNB

The main objective is to provide consumers and fleet buyers of realistic fuel consumption figures for a meaningful number of vehicles – cars and light commercials – on the roads of South Africa. The five-day route takes the competing vehicles on main roads from Johannesburg to Durban, East London, Port Elizabeth, George, and Cape Town.

Not only will the Fuel Economy Tour produce real-life fuel consumption figures, but also travelling times between these centres, which are all on major holiday routes.

Currently vehicle buyers have only got access to manufacturers’ fuel consumption figures obtained in laboratory test conditions and those in a few motoring magazines.

Now all the cars will be driven on the same roads under the same weather conditions and time of day, making them realistic.

The intention is to make this Fuel Economy Tour an annual event over the same route so that the data bank of fuel consumption figures continues to grow.
