Around the world in 142 days in a VW Caddy EcoFuel

We don't get any VW Caddy's here in the U.S., and definately none powered by natural gas. But, they do sell them in other parts of the world. Speaking of other parts of the world and the VW Caddy (excellent segue, right) it took Rainer Zietlow and its team only 142 days while driving 45,000 kilometers using only natural gas to travel over 5 continents in their VW Caddy EcoFuel. The journey ended on April 13th in Leipzig, Germany. This is a rather impressive feat, even more so considering that the crew made absolutely no stop for damage repair, according to this google-translated version of the original posting on I'd like to thank Christian from Germancarblog for sharing this story with us!
