|Each year, the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) holds a competition known as the Clean Snowmobile Challenge. Universities from across the country compete in the competition, which is held in Michigan from March 10-15. The goal is to modify a production snowmobile to make it more efficient, environmentally friendly, and quiet. Our group is one of three sub-teams working on the University of Maine's current candidate for the competition: a 2007 Yamaha Phazer. Our group's task is to convert the snowmobile to run off of E-85, and to design and install a larger fuel tank to preserve the snowmobile's maximum range when running off of E-85.
