Sewanee Students Boost Fuel Efficiency of the Ford "Eco" Explorer

The Sewanee Eco-Auto Club is a student organization at The University of The South dedicated to exploring ways in which the common consumer can best approach questions of efficiency with automobile use.

Students in this club have taken a "clunker" (1998 Ford Explorer with 213,000miles) and modified it for efficiency and extended use. In this journey, students discovered that with a little creativity and a small budget, they were able to debunk the perception that all old cars are "junk".
