A car giving mileage up to 250 km per litre?
Seven engineering students from Rayat Institute of Engineering and Information Technology, Ropar today claimed to have developed a concept car with an amazing mileage of 250 km per litre after putting in five months of hard work.
Presenting this car for the first time before the media here, the elated students said they would put it on display at the World Super Mileage competition being held at Michigan in USA from June 5 to 6 where contestants from 35 countries including USA, UK and Bahrain will display their exhibits.
Throwing light on the features of the car leader of the group of techies, Gaurav Aggarwal said that the car has a 92 cc engine with TCI ignition system. The frame of the 65 kg car has been developed by using special grade aluminum 6063 T6. Equipped with hydraulic disc brakes and modified carburettor and fuel supply system, the car has a light weight outer body shell made up of kelvar and fibre with highly aerodynamic structure, he said.
“The car was run on an open track for 25 minutes and the mileage of 250 km per litre was achieved,” he said.
Replying to a question he said they had to alter the ignition time by 20 degrees and reduce the rolling and frictional resistance to achieve the extraordinary mileage.
