Engineering students dream about creating something new and innovative when they join college. While many end their college days without anything substantial there are some lucky few who have their experience of their life. Students from the Priest engineering college in Tanjore, Tamil Nadu can be classified in the second group.
These talented students have developed a dual fuel car that can run on both petrol and LPG. If you are wondering what is so great about it read on. This car named as To Go is essentially a two seater. The To Go is powered by a 110cc engine. The students embarked on developing the To Go dual fuel car as part of their final year project.
It cost them just Rs.35,000 to develop the To Go. Here is another startling feature of the car. It offers an awesome mileage of 65kmpl while running on petrol. This is the kind of mileage that a regular scooter or even a motorcycle cannot match in real world conditions. But even more startling is the fact that when running on LPG, the mileage of the To Go will increase to a whopping 110kmpl.
The To Go can be a handy little car to have. It has a limited top speed of 50kmph which is more than enough for a car that can be used as a city run about.
The Priest engineering college appears to be a hot bed for such innovative car projects. The students from this same college had previously developed an amphibian car that can run on both land and water. This amphibian car is also a low cost project and the cost of building is Rs.35,000.
The students have said the work that the To Go can be a low cost transport alternative to people. The To Go is a very practical car as it can run on two fuels. It offers its occupants protection from nature's elements and is very cheap to maintain to. The students are looking forward to find an industrial investor who can make the To Go in to a mass market car. Drivespark.com wishes them the best of luck.
