There is a craze among auto makers and University students to create fuel efficient autos and vehicles. Engineer students of the University of New Haven have built a prototype of a three wheeler that gets 500 mpg.
The vehicle is being named as the 'Mobile Aerodynamic Lightweight Super-Mileage Tri-Wheeled Road Monster, or 'Maelstrom.' Maelstrom -- a single-seated and lightweight car -- features $25,000 carbon-fiber body which was donated by Vespoli. The prototype will take part in Supermileage competition.
