Those who rack up the most kilometres with the least fuel will climb to the top of the highscore list. Quiz questions between the individual stages show gamers how it works. Every correct answer results in an additional tank bonus. The current range record can always be seen on-line in the highscore table. Players can also upload their personal best to the Facebook fan page for Volkswagen eGames. These on-line scores will also wind up right in the game; some 20 select range records will be displayed along the course to provide players extra motivation to beat the others.

Clever extras: Via an integrated search function, players can be guided to a nearby Volkswagen dealer and request a product brochure or test drive. A quick exchange with friends is guaranteed by Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail button.

Fitting background music enhances the virtual fuel-saving fun. Players can expect three bands fromthe Volkswagen Sound Foundation: Jenix, Mega! Mega!, and Querfälltein.
