Sorry guys. I was bitten by a bee at the bottom of my left feet. Can't drive so I can't get you the coordinates.
To have a bee stinging you at the bottom of your feet, you must have goyang kaki :mrgreen:

Car is Proton BLM - http://www.kfc.com.my/guessmileage/term.html
Participants are required to guess the exact distance in kilometres (to one decimal place, eg: 1234.5km – 5 digits) travelled by the designated car. The actual drive using a Proton Saga 1.3 Base Line had been completed before the commencement date of the contest and adjudicated by an independent panel of judges.
Proton BLM full specification:

Engine= CAMPRO 1.3 + Intake Air Fuel Module (IAFM)
Engine output= 70KW(94BHP)/6000rpm
Rev=120/4000rpm
L x W x H= 4257mm X 1680mm X 1502mm
Cabin size= 413L
Petrol tank= 40L
Colors = 5 metallic 2 solid .
Metallic = Genetic Silver, Mountain Blue, Zircon Green, Tranquility Black, Grey.
Solid= Red , White
Warranty= 3 year or 150000 KM
Petrol Consumption= Manual: 5.5L/100KM Auto: 6.0L/100KM
5.5L/100km is too good to be true - could be air-con off, no load and driven on test track. A more realistic mileage is at 14km per liter, or maximum 560km per full tank.

Then it needs 4 full tanks of petrol, that'll give 3 refuelling stops, with a break every 500 km. Anybody drives a Proton BLM with all 4 tyres at the correct pressure? We need to gauge the accuracy of its odometer now.

Azmi
- drives a Wira daily with under pressure tyres, odometer lari giler!

I went to stop my nieces and my youngest daughter from playing at a deep "parit" (a deep pool used to keep fresh water and breed fish). Takut jatuh dan lemas. Stepped on a bee with my bare feet on my way back. Got stung. Mana le aku nampak......kecik sangat. Only noticed the bee after I got stung.

I would be betraying the GPS enthusiasts in MalSingMaps in I give you the estimated distance directly. Since all the the coordinates have been given, it would be easy to measure the distance using MapSource. All Mapsource users who have been following this thread have the answers already I believe. Right now we have to include the 3 petrol breaks and the inaccuracy of the Proton Saga BLM odometer.

But seeing that you're a Nuvi user, what I can say is that the distance is between 1650 km and 1700 km if he takes the closest route. The distance will change, based on the route taken and the above limitations. Hope this suffice.

I'm sure everyone here ni buat diam-diam ubi berisi, we know the distance calculated by Mapsource - but the clincher must be all the fancy algorithms that Azmi, myself and everyone else for that matter would be furiously formulating to refine the figure!

With a such large distance of over 1600km - the slightest of variances can throw off the final answer by a bigg margin.
