12th Annual Missouri SuperMileage Challenge Another Success.

This year's 12th Annual Missouri SuperMileage Challenge again featured both e-10 and Bio-Diesel cars. 6 schools participated with 8 cars.

Top honors for the e-10 class goes to Ranken Technical College with average fuel consumption of 219.687 mpg. Ranken mentored students from local High Schools in the design and build of two e-10 entries this year. Great job for their 3rd year! Marshall High School came in close for 2nd place with their #31 car at 208.694 mpg. The Owls sported a young 4 person team composed of 3 freshmen. Supermileage veterans, Odessa High School, capped the 3rd place spot with an average of 138.557 mpg in their #28 car.

John Burroughs came with a completely redisgned Bio-Diesel entry. It preformed amazingly after a half day of mechanical problems. The students hung in there with the needed repairs and completed a final official run with just minutes left on the challenge clock. Did I say "preformed amazingly"? At 180.939 mpg average they were competitive with the e-10 cars. Their best showing yet!

John Burroughs also took the "Engineering Award" Sponsored by UCM's TECA organization for their very informative and organized engineering display explaining all the design and build aspects of their Bio-Diesel car. The award was presented by Mike Elliott, TECA's faculty sponsor and comes with a $200 cash award. Thanks TECA!
