Basti's Oeko-Polo D.i.-G40... for sure the slowest G40 here
« on: December 18, 2009, 08:07:35 am »
Hello,

I'm Sebastian from Germany and this is my Oeko-Polo. 52 cars have been built by VW / IAV for r&d purpose. The engine is a 2-Cyl. watercooled D.i.-Diesel with a G40 supercharger (with automatically activated magnetic clutch). Max. performance is 40 HP with Vmax up to 139 km/h  ;D

More information (in german) here:

http://www.g-lader.info/fahrzeuge_studien_oekopolo.htm

We'll exhibit this car together with a genuine Mk2 Cup-G40 while the Techno Classica oldtimer fair in April 2010 (http://www.polog40.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,3527.0.html). Perhaps anyone from here wants to visit us, you're welcome!

cool!  I've read about these things before, I've never seen one in real life though.  Would be interesting to see.

What MPG do you get out of it?

Hello again,

yes, the car just ran 2 years on street while the praxis test and was then left in a garage.

In optimal case those cars need 1.7 - 1.9 Liter/100km at 60 km/h (highway). With average driving it needs 3,3 to max. 5 Liter/100km.

If my maths is correct...
1.8L/100km is 157mpg
3.3L/100km is 85.6mpg
5L/100km is 56.5mpg !!

Not bad at all, especially compared to a BlueMotion (though they have a little more than 40bhp!).
