A video has appeared on YouTube showing how the luxuriously made BMW 730d was able to drive 1,448.41 km on a fully filled tank. As the driver of this car says, during the entire trip, the on-board computer showed a consumption of almost 5.34 l / 100 km.

Ever since the global Volkswagen diesel car scandal erupted a few years ago, diesel engines have become a little more wary. Many compression ignition engines were found to emit far more harmful gases than the regulations allowed, and this basically meant that the days of diesel engines were numbered. Nowadays, many European manufacturers are still producing truly fuel efficient and dynamic diesel engines.

The BMW B57 inline six-cylinder diesel engine is a very good example of this.

With a displacement of 3.0 liters and an output of 265 to 400 horsepower depending on the number of turbochargers, it is far more economical than any other engine found in the full-size 7 Series sedan, apart from the hybrid models.

Joe Achilles’ new YouTube video shows the diesel 730d in action. A BMW fan from England decided to see how many kilometers he can cover with his 730 Ld on one tank. The original plan called for a trip from London to Barcelona, ​​but travel restrictions in Europe forced him to travel only in the UK.

One morning, Achilles filled his car with 78 liters of premium diesel fuel. He toured the country trying to maintain a top speed in a luxury limousine, which in this case is about 112 km / h.

Result? Achilles managed to drive more than 1,448.41 km without refueling, and the sedan’s on-board computer showed a consumption of 5.4 liters per 100 kilometers. This is an impressive result, given the fact that the “seven” weighs under two tons.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the new BMW 2-Series Active Tourer was shown in the first renders. Recently, the car has been seen frequently during test trials, which has allowed the creation of renders that are close to reality.
