A group of students of Sarhad University in Peshawar have developed a tiny car, designed to deal with fuel shortages and rising motor costs. The three students are now all set to showcase their car at an auto exhibition scheduled in Singapore.
Benefits of Electronic Fuel Injection Technology
The fuel-efficient car is highly efficient as it operates on the principles of electronic fuel injection scheme. This maximizes fuel efficiency to reduce total fuel consumption and cost. It’s also interesting to note that same injection technology has been used by top selling car manufacturers.
Instead of using a carburetor, the EFI system employs an electronic device that controls fuel injectors. The electronic device uses sensors to gather information from the engine, then estimates the required fuel needed, this makes the entire scheme fuel efficient.
Significance Of Car Size
The concept is rather simple: the smaller the vehicle, lesser the fuel it will consume. However, shrinking the size of the car also serves another, arguably the most important purpose: significantly increasing mileage. Another interesting fact is that students have designed this car by modifying a motorcycle engine. Surprisingly, this wonderful vehicle covers 180 km in just 1 liter of fuel.
Pakistani students have proved their engineering prowess and creativity by participating in many international automotive contests and exhibitions. Last year, Pakistan’s first formula racing car – developed by students of NUST – had been selected as the only team from Asia to participate in the Formula SAE Lincoln 2016 Competition, NE, USA. Moreover, a group of students from NED presented their formula car at Formula SAE Competition held in Italy the same year. And yet this time, Sarhad University’s students have a chance to represent their country in Asian cars exhibition in Singapore on February 16, 2017. We wish them all the best in the future.
