June 4, 2014 - If you think 28 miles per gallon is decent? How about 1,200 miles per gallon? That's what this vehicle, designed and built by Penn State Behrend students, gets, and this year the students hope to better that mileage.

The students are members of the Supermilage Team and spent the past year redesigning their carbon fiber test vehicle. The competition begins Thursday and runs through Friday afternoon in Marshall, Michigan.

The students are hoping to once again bring home first place in the event. The Penn State teams won in 2012 and 2013.
