We all know that saving is desirable. However, being aware of it doesn’t make it easier to dismiss the things that make us happy. Desired shoes, electronic device, interior decoration, pet … We believe the list is endless. The road is not exception. Which car to buy? Where to travel? How to save on gas? Answers to these questions have a traditional EcoChallenge driving event organized by Opel in cooperation with the Auto klub magazine, Ekomobilis, and this year’s new member of the crew – APIOS.
“We are aware of the importance of saving in every segment of our lives. And that includes time behind the wheel. EcoChallenge not only provides the participants with a nice memory of driving Opel Astra 1.6 CDTi on picturesque roads of Istria, but also valuable information on reduction of fuel costs and increasing efficiency. We’re on the same road as EcoChallenge team in offering the best service to our customers. That’s why we supported this valuable project with A-Motion fuels enriched with the latest generation of additives, developed by OMV brand partner. The result is eliminated pollution from the power supply system, higher protection against corrosion and reduced foam that enables much faster and efficient refuelling. All with the goal to make EcoChallenge drivers up to the task, “said Joško Crvelin, Director of Strategy and Development at APIOS.
This year, traditional EcoChallenge has presented a new format of two-day driving school that gathered 16 readers of the Auto klub magazine who gave the most interesting answers to the question why they should be chosen for the EcoChallenge 2018.
The caravan of Opel Astra 1.6 CDTi began its journey in Zagreb and continued to Istria where participants had the chance to apply eco-driving tricks previously acquired by Ekomobilis’ instructors.
The two-day adventure ended in a relaxed atmosphere, well known in Istria, in the beautiful ambience of the Franco Cattunar’s winery and the Klaudio Ipša’s oilery where drivers recharged their batteries and became even more motivated to return to the Croatian Tuscany. Of course, in the new Opel Astra and with a full tank of A-Motion fuel.
