A group of University of Ottawa students are hoping to boldly go further than anyone has ever gone before on a single litre of gas.

The team of engineering students is headed to Detroit next month for the Shell Eco-marathon, in which hundreds of teams will compete to achieve mind-blowing feats of fuel efficiency.

Patrick Dumond, the Ottawa team’s faculty advisor, said the competition is a great opportunity for the students to take ideas from classroom and apply them where the rubber hits the road.
