Below are the top 10 most economical vans according to combined fuel economy.

The good news for businesses is vans haven't escaped the push towards economy by car manufacturers. In the last 5 years small vans have become at least 25% more fuel efficient, making the businesses that use them more profitable.

Nine of the ten vans are diesels but there is a very impressive petrol engine here, if you prefer, using only 0.4 litres more than the best diesel van. The Holden XC Combo is the only petrol engine to make it into the top 10.

Citroen Berlingo 2

The most economical van is the Citroen Berlingo.

The original Berlingo was a superb van. It was economical and practical but what really set it aside from its main rival, the Holden Combo, was its rock solid reliability. As a result it became hugely popular.

Amazingly Citroen have come up with considerable improvements with the Berlingo 2. The 1.6 diesel accelerates almost 30% quicker, is more powerful, and yet is 25% more efficient than the original petrol powered Berlingo. If its as reliable as the original Citroen will have another winner.
