UBC Vehicle Achieves 0.074 litres/100 km

A team of University of British Columbia engineers have won the Supermileage competition with a car that can drive from Vancouver to Halifax on a Gallon of Gas!

““We achieved this level of efficiency by optimizing many aspects of the vehicle design, including: aerodynamics, light-weight construction, a small displacement engine (54 cc), and conservative driving habits,” says Team Captain Kevin Li.

UBC’s student team has taken first place four out of the six years it has competed, with 2006 marking the fourth straight victory. Last year the UBC team beat out 27 teams by reaching 1,600 miles per gallon (mpg)”
