This Student-Designed Car Can Cross The U.S. On Just One Gallon Of Gas


(Amanda Froelich) How far could you travel on a single gallon of gasoline? For most people, that distance would be 20 – 40 miles. With a new Alérion Supermileage car which was designed by students at Quebec’s Université Laval, you could travel the entire distance of the United States of America. That’s because the lightweight vehicle gets 2,713.1 miles per gallon of gasoline.

The students won first place at the Shell Eco-marathon Americas contest for internal combustion engine cars with their invention that can travel the distance between Atlanta, Georgia and Seattle, Washington, on one gallon of gas. As Inhabitat reports, engineers compete every year to win the Shell competition for most fuel-efficient vehicles. And, this isn’t the first time the Université Laval students snagged a first prize. In fact, they’ve won seven of the ten competitions that have taken place in the past decade. This year, the team beat out 30 other student-designed vehicles.




Because the students want to maintain a competitive edge in the competition, little is known about how the vehicle works. However, from a former winning entry from Université Laval, it has been discovered that the students incorporated a Briggs & Stratton single cylinder 3.5 horsepower engine in one of their winning vehicles. Thin tires help minimize surface area contact and a carbon fiber body keeps the car lightweight.


According to HowStuffWorks, super-mileage vehicles are capable of obtaining all their mileage through a car body stripped down to only the elements necessary for speed and safety. By making it smaller and more wind-resistant, the aerodynamic design is improved.

Over 100 students participated in the Shell competition. Vehicles could be entered into classes: UrbanConcept cars (designed to provide a solution to real-life road needs) and Prototype cars (more futuristic and streamlined). As you might have guessed, the winning car was entered under Prototype car and will most definitely be improved upon for future competitions.

Question -- What is the goal of this website? Why do we share different sources of information that sometimes conflicts or might even be considered disinformation? 
Answer -- The primary goal of Stillness in the Storm is to help all people become better truth-seekers in a real-time boots-on-the-ground fashion. This is for the purpose of learning to think critically, discovering the truth from within—not just believing things blindly because it came from an "authority" or credible source. Instead of telling you what the truth is, we share information from many sources so that you can discern it for yourself. We focus on teaching you the tools to become your own authority on the truth, gaining self-mastery, sovereignty, and freedom in the process. We want each of you to become your own leaders and masters of personal discernment, and as such, all information should be vetted, analyzed and discerned at a personal level. We also encourage you to discuss your thoughts in the comments section of this site to engage in a group discernment process.
