Students use tools to build hydrogen car

Students work to reattach the rear wheels of Tigergen III, a hydrogen car, at the Engineering Building West on March 16. The car will use fuel cells to convert hydrogen into electricity to drive one of the wheels, which is more efficient than having it drive two or four wheels. Nathan Park estimates that the car will have about a 700 miles per gallon equivalent efficiency rating.
