Go Cal Poly – SLO!!  A group of mechanical engineering students at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA have developed a vehicle that can get up to 2752.3 MPG.

I’m definitely a proud Alumni!  Go Poly!

Excerpt from Inhabitat –

“The Cal Poly Supermileage Team’s wondercar, dubbed the Black Widow, has been under construction since 2005. The 96 pound car has three wheels, a drag coefficient of 0.12, a top speed of 30 MPH, and a modified 3 horsepower Honda 50cc four-stroke engine. It originally clocked in at 861 MPG and has been continuously tweaked to achieve the mileage we see today.”
