England and back on 6 litres of fuel!

image Students from El Palmeral school in Orihuela have built a vehicle (not sure we'd call it a car!) that they claim will run for 300 kilometres on one litre of ethanol.

The 34 kilogram three wheeler will take part in the Shell Echo Marathon in Germany on the 6th and 7th May. Driven by the lightest person they could find at 50 kilograms, the car cruises at 30 kilometres per hour but can reach speeds of 50 to 60.

My only question is, where do you put the shopping?
