uOttawa Supermileage

Press Release, 2010: A surprise (given the budget tightness) second-place finishes at the SAE Super Mileage Competition. The University of Ottawa’s slippery car has truly earned the term fuel efficient, being able to travel from Ottawa to Winnipeg (2,500 kilometres) on a single gallon of regular unleaded gasoline. A considerable accomplishment and one that the design team is looking to top! The team is claiming that they are already applying their experience to push the car farther to a record shattering 4,800 kilometres on a single gallon of gas.

We are a small team of engineering students at the University of Ottawa that design and build ultra fuel efficient race vehicles. The team was founded in 2008 in order to satisfy the need to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to real life problems. We enter our vehicle annually in international fuel efficiency competitions for motivation and perpetual improvement.
