FROM ANCHORAGE TO RIO ON ONE GALLON OF FUEL
That’s not a typo. The most recent effort from team Microjoule, winner of Shell’s eco-marathon, gets a whopping 8,870 mpg. Enough to take you from Anchorage AL to Rio de Janeiro BR… with about 300 miles to spare.
At Shell, we know the world must learn to use energy more efficiently. That’s why we have been supporting innovation in fuel economy through eco-marathon and other initiatives for the past 25 years. The program gives young engineers, designers, and scientists worldwide the chance to make a difference. And they’ve certainly come through.
Every day we strive to match their forward thinking spirit by producing more clean burning natural gas, focusing on sustainable biofuels and developing technology to capture and store emissions. For us, efforts like this aren’t just important, they’re essential.
But truly sustainable change can only come from the innovative young minds of tomorrow. So let’s give a hand to team Microjoule. Bravo.
