The University Record, September 18, 2000

Photo stories: Energy Fest 2000 celebrates savings

Visitors to the Diag on Sept. 13 were most fascinated by a car that is reported to get 61 miles to the gallon during city driving and 70 on the highway. The hybrid two-seater has an electric motor and an internal combustion engine. Alumnus Peter Wege, an adviser to the Center for Sustainable Systems, brought the Honda Insight to campus. The car holds 10.6 gallons of regular unleaded gasoline, enough to transport you from the White House to Toronto, about 690 miles.

Other exhibits highlighted the ways the University saves energy and how students, staff and faculty can help. Photo by Martin Vloet, U-M Photo Services
