That's about 900 miles, which his how far a Chevrolet engineer says she drove a diesel Cruze on one tank of fuel.

Tessa Baughman took the Lordstown-made car on a test drive recently.

"We drove five below the speed limit and were able to get 900 miles on the tank. And then we drove back with traffic from Arkansas and we were able to get 800 miles to a tank," Baughman says.

The Cruze attains 46 miles-per-gallon using a fuel efficient engine, aerodynamic shape and tires that minimize wasted energy.
