Students design a car that gets 2,824 mpg Published: May 8, 2014

A three-wheeled, teardrop-shaped car has won Shell’s (RDSA) Eco-marathon Americas competition, a yearly contest that pits teams of students against each other in a race to build energy-efficient vehicles, Yahoo reports.

The winning group, from Université Laval in Quebec, overcame technical setbacks, including excess friction short circuits, to achieve an efficiency of 2,824 miles per gallon.

To put that in perspective, the prototype could travel from New York to Los Angeles on less than a gallon of fuel.
