Most Fuel Efficient Motorcycle in Philippines Did 129.87 km/L

Some 280 participants in the recently concluded SafeRun IV motorcycle competition proved that the keys to optimum motorcycle performance are: a well-conditioned motorcycle, good riding skills, and safe riding habits. Billed as “the ultimate safety and fuel efficiency reality challenge,” SafeRun IV is presented by industry leader Petron Corporation as part of its road safety advocacy. Different from the usual motorcycle events promoting endurance competition, SafeRun promotes safe riding including the observance of traffic rules and regulations as well as speed limits, which lead to fuel efficiency.

Categorized according to their motorcycle’s engine displacement, participants are required to cover 600 kilometers, stopping to fuel up at designated Petron stations which also serve as checkpoints. Competitors who log the best fuel efficiency (km/L) for their respective categories are declared winners. Participants who violate traffic rules and speed limits, and fail to arrive at the assigned checkpoint within the required time—whether too early or too late—are given demerit points or may be disqualified altogether.

Taking off from The Laus Group Center in San Fernando, Pampanga on March 9 and finishing on March 10, the top winners in the motorcycle and scooter categories were as follows:

According to Petron Local Station Manager Amerlino “Bong” Paguia, himself an avid motorcycle enthusiast: “Through this event, we would like to encourage riders to give due attention to their vehicle’s roadworthiness through proper maintenance which, when combined with good riding skills and observance of traffic rules, leads to both road safety and fuel efficiency. Of course, we also want to prove, through this event, that Petron Sprint motorcycle oils and Petron fuels are the best match to deliver outstanding performance in terms of fuel economy as well as long distance travel.”


  1. wow, ilagay mo na real world mileage 20-30 km/L, tapos maghimala ng 50% class 1 toll sa big bikes, baka pde nang ipalit na daily driver sa kotse. makabawas pa sa road congestion.

    1. Not to mention fixed rate parking haha.

      Kung wala lang masyadong g*gong nagnanakaw ng motor.

    2. better fuel mileage, cheaper and easier parking, no coding, (technically illegal, and difficult) lanesplitting...

      downside, delikado at di praktikal pag na-ulan, tapos mas mabilis magamit ang consumables like tires, fluids, etc.

      well, since starting price eh 400k-500k kahit kasama pa safety gear, mas mura parin kesa tipong wigo, mirage, brio etc. choices choices……

  2. Yung natipid mo sa gasolina, gagamitin mo namang pambayad sa ospital.

  3. truth be told, it's enticing to say the least lalo na yung promised of better fuel economy. Pero safety is a big factor just like what you peeps said. My sister in law had a motorcycle accident last sunday, but gladly she is now recovering. Pero the fact that yung gastos, yung pag aalala, yung hirap nya at ng pamilya heck it's not worth it. Sure you can save gas but on what cause, kung may disiplina lang karamihan ng drivers satin ang saya sana mag motor.

  4. eh di wag kayo magmotor ganun ka simple. buti naman kayo may pambili ng kotse. pano naman yung mahihirap nating kababayan? puro kayo dada. alis kayo sa page nato.

    1. Tama.. Hindi kasalanan ng motor yung disgrasya kaninuman.. Nasa rider pa rin diskarte at pangangalaga sa motorcycle

  5. what kind of gasoline did the scooters use? unleaded?

    1. Lahat naman po unleaded na since late 90's.. Baka ibig nyong sabihin anung octane rating kinarga ng petron sa event na ito..

  6. Sir, tanong po sana ako kung anong exact KM/liter ng Mio soul i 125s?

  7. galing nung driver ng cbr 150r napaabot nya ng 100+kpl
    ano kayang year model unh cbr nya
