Around The World With 24 Tanks of Petrol

A new record has been set. And it is a new fuel efficiency record. It was done by driving around the world on just 24 tanks of petrol. This was done by a husband and wife team. Their names? John and Helen Taylor.

It took then 78 days to accomplish this feat. And it took them 18,000 miles. They went through Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and Canada. They expected to use around 50 tanks but it looked like they needed less than half of this.

What they used was a Volkswagen Golf hatchback. Their trip around the world stopped in London. And yes, it was after they had gone through 25 countries.
