This year a friend of mine Kraig Schultz is hosting the first west Michigan fuel economy challenge. It will be held on Muskegon Earth Fair on April 27, 2013.
There will be several categories for vehicles
Human / Animal Powered (i.e. jogging or horse back riding)
Human / Electric Hybrid (i.e. electric bicycle)
Electric / Combustion Hybrid
Each vehicle must have been used to provide practical transportation for at least one person for a total distance of not less than 300 miles during the last calendar year
Vehicles will be from the Muskegon area. Challengers in a 55 mile radius around Muskegon are invited to compete. This area includes Muskegon, Whitehall, Montague, Ludington, Big Rapids, Grand Rapids, Holland, Zeeland, etc.
The competition is judged on either most miles traveled annually, or efficiency via MPGe. Refer to chart below.
