Willmar students take 2nd in supermileage competition

Email

A bunch of Willmar Senior High students have built a car that can get more than 500 miles per gallon. Of course, it's not a very practical car. It only holds one person at a time and a fairly small person at that. It doesn't have a trunk to hold groceries, and it can't pull a boat.

But that's not the point. It's light and aerodynamic, and it placed second in the state last week in the Minnesota Technology and Engineering Educators Association Supermileage Challenge.
