Last January 26, 2019, at a pre-set 10-km route around the IPC headquarters in Binan, Laguna, the showdown for the national level/championship stage of the 2018 Isuzu Fuel Economy Challenge saw 27 finalists take to their Isuzu mu-X RZ4E SUV and D-MAX RZ4E pickup for one final fuel economy run.
Six winners–three from Isuzu mu-X RZ4E category and three from the Isuzu D-MAX RZ4E category–were declared the most fuel-efficient drivers and are set to enjoy an all-expense-paid trip (airfare and hotel) for two to Thailand scheduled for April 1 to 4, 2019.
The six winners, and their fuel efficiency results, are the following:
- Elizabeth Vinarao – 17. 60 km/li (Isuzu Commonwealth)
- Kart Thomas de Leon – 17.20 km/li (Isuzu Bulacan)

Over 40 Isuzu customers from all participating Isuzu dealers nationwide went through a grueling screening process from September 17 to December 31, 2018. The participants tried their best to squeeze out the best fuel efficiency results from the Isuzu RZ4E mu-X and the Isuzu D-MAX RZ4E during their test drives. The drivers with the best fuel efficiency ratings in these test drives qualified for the national level/championship stage of the “2018 Isuzu Fuel Eco Challenge”.
