PROVO, UT – Nine students at Brigham Young University are rightfully proud of the car they built from the ground up. It can go up to 1,716 miles per gallon!

The supermileage car’s average speed is 15 miles an hour but hey, talk about being environmentally friendly!

“I describe it normally as a bobsled to people who haven’t seen it before,” says Tyson Grig – supermileage car driver.

Sounds like movement in the right direction!
