MikeChino sends along this awe-inspiring select: “Muse over claims of energized vehicles that collar as surplus 200 MPG are awe-inspiring? Undertake this on respecting magnitude: a pile of mechanistic engineering students at Cal Poly bring into the world developed a conveyance that can pursue up to 2752.3 MPG — and it doesn’t revenge oneself on ingest batteries. The Cal Poly Supermileage Team’s wondercar, dubbed the Boycott Widow, has been at the mercy of construction since 2005. The 96 hammer pile has three wheels, a slog coefficient of 0.12, a superior suddenness of 30 MPH, and a modified 3 horsepower Honda 50cc four-stroke mechanism. It from day one clocked in at 861 MPG and has been continuously tweaked to succeed in the mileage we undertake today.” It’s not noticeably as street-worthy, yet, as Volkswagen’s 235 MPG One-Liter concept. Updated 20:01 GMT: The Cal Poly car’s earlier incarnation achieved 861 MPG, not MPH; corrected above.
