The Isuzu Driveway Getaway 2018 allowed participants to sample the Isuzu D-Max and mu-X from its fuel partner’s Petron Marilao station all the way to Thunderbird Resort in Bauang, La Union.
The event wasn’t just the usual seat time behind the tiller kind if event, however, as the media were divided into teams and challenged to consume the least amount of fuel. This was determined by the amount of fuel they used up which was measured at Petron Tarlac. The winners were announced during a dinner held that evening at Thunderbird Resort.
