Since its inception more than 30 years ago as a way to generate public awareness in the area of fuel economy, the Supermileage® competition offers a simple yet challenging goal: to build a one-person, fuel-efficient vehicle based around a one-cylinder, four-cycle engine. (Engines are sponsored by Briggs & Stratton). In this competition, the highest mpg average over a 9.6 mile course wins the event. Supermileage® is part of SAE International’s Collegiate Design Series™. Other competitions in the series include Baja SAE®, Clean Snowmobile Challenge™, Formula SAE® and Aero Design®.
