A hydrogen tank sits in the back of Tigergen II, a hydrogen fuel cell car designed by the MU Hydrogen Car Team. The team will be competing April 14-17, 2011 in Houston in the Shell Eco-marathon, and the cars will be judged not on speed or who finishes first, but on whoever consumes the least amount of energy.
