Locals Build Super High Mileage Vehicles

How would you like to tool around in a car that gets more than 300 miles-per-gallon? A team of students from Louisiana Tech University have built just that.

The Tech students claimed first place in the competition in Houston in the diesel-powered category with 315.9 mpg. They also claimed 4th place in the gasoline-powered Urban Concept Vehicle category with 354.8 mpg.

This year, the Cyber Innovation Center’s academic program sponsored six area high schools, comprising five teams, in the competition. In the battery-electric Prototype Division, Benton High School placed 6th among high schools and 10th overall while Parkway High School placed 10th among high schools and 19th overall.
