UBC Supermileage Places 2nd at Shell Eco-Marathon

Congratulations to UBC Supermileage who won silver in the Urban Vehicle category with a rating of 325 miles/US gallon. The Urban Concept class requires vehicles that can be used as future commuter cars. The vehicles must include items such as windshield wipers, trunk space, etc. The Prototype vehicle ended up with an unofficial rating of between 600-700 mpg. This rating ended as unofficial as we ran out of fuel on the last lap of the downtown street course. Our fuel tank is only 30mL.

These results are even more impressive when one considers that fact that both UBC vehicles were built from scratch following the loss of both vehicles from the 2014 competition. The team designed, built and raced two outstanding vehicles in only eight months.
