Torch, Spring 2000

Torch 15 C edarville College engineering students’ efforts to enhance the performance of an ethanol-burning Chevrolet have captured the attention of automobile enthusiasts around the country. The February 2000 issue of Car and Driver magazine features the College’s participation in a contest sponsored by General Motors, the U.S. Department of Energy, and Natural Resources Canada. Students from 14 colleges and universities across the United States and Canada were selected to compete in modifying a stock Chevrolet Silverado to best run on E85 alcohol. Last spring, the teams transported their vehicles to Milford, Michigan, where they underwent a battery of tests ranging from emissions and fuel economy to cold-starting and acceleration. According to Car and Driver , Cedarville was one of two schools whose teams came up with the most creative modifications. The magazine cited teams from the University of Nebraska and Cedarville for “a surprising degree of refinement.” The periodical also reported that the Cedarville entry took top honors in acceleration. The Silverado modified by the Cedarville College engineering students was also selected for display at the North American International Auto Show, a premiere automotive trade show held in Detroit.
