Automotive X Prize Winner Gets 102.5 MPG | Autopia | Wired.com

From Automotive X Prize Winner Gets 102.5 MPG | Autopia | Wired.com:

Looks like an ambulance chaser’s wet dream. Now for the cool part: It is NOT a hybrid. Nope, it runs on E85.

Now, it looks really dangerous for road use, but it would be awesome as a campus-type transport pod. Like for example a big university, a factory, movie studio or a military base. If they could add cargo capabilities while keeping the efficiency anywhere within 85% of these 102.5MPG, then the car would be a real winner.
