A team of Cal Poly engineering students are finally able to take a joy ride after participating in a long-awaited competition this weekend.
Cal Poly's super mileage team spent a year building the prototype car they call the "Lamina 2".
It's able to go for over 12,000 miles on just one gallon of gas.
The team competed against 120 other schools at the Shell Eco-marathon Americas event in Houston this past weekend.
Their car came in seventh among prototype cars that get at least one-thousand miles to the gallon.
