As we are excited to start a new year for 2017’s Supermileage Competition, here are a few photos from the 2016 competition. In 2016, we achieved 463 mpg. This year, we plan to make major improvements to the vehicle in hopes to achieve our goal of 1500 mpg!
We are glad to be getting off to a great start this semester with the super mileage vehicle. Many of the design objectives from the fall are on their way to completion this semester. We are excited to continue with projects such as the new rolling resistance tire testing machine in addition to working on adapting a new engine to our existing chassis. The team has a great semester ahead of itself and June will be here before we know it! Stay tuned for future updates and progress on the 2015 UMass Super Mileage Vehicle.
