UMass Supermileage Vehicle 2017

Hey Everyone! Our MinuteFund will be up and running tomorrow! We will provide a link once it starts. You can donate to help us purchase new materials and equipment to reach our goal of over 1500 mpg. The donations will also help cover travel expenses to get our students and the vehicle to Michigan for the Society of Automotive Engineers Supermileage Competition. For our fundraising campaign, we have uploaded our 2017 promotional video to give you a better insight into what our team is about and how we operate. It was really exciting and fun to shoot this video and drive our vehicle around campus. Check it out!

We also accept donations such as materials, equipment, tools, and parts. If you or a company you know of might like to help us in such a way, instead of a monetary donation, we would love to speak with you and proudly display your company's name in the shop, on social media, and on our vehicle!

Here are a couple members of the team working on our 50cc engine. We test engines on our in-house dynamometer. This year in particular we've put a lot of work into our dyno, including improvements in safety and testing procedures.

Special shout-out to Montague Machine in Turners Falls, Massachusetts (montaguemachine.com) for donating and center-boring a nice piece of cast iron for the team. We are hard at work over winter break machining this into a new sleeve for our Briggs & Stratton #smv engine. Thanks for the support!
