Contest fuels green efforts.

The search to find the world's most fuel-efficient vehicle takes place this month, at the 28th Shell Eco-Marathon UK

Teams from as far afield as the USA and Japan are taking part, all hoping to win the title of "world's most fuel-efficient vehicle", and the winner is also hoping to gain an entry in the Guinness Book of World Records.

The 2004 Shell Eco-Marathon UK is aiming to find the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the world in the categories of unleaded petrol, diesel and LPG.

Cars drive at an average speed of at least 15mph for seven laps, which is 10 miles, of a racetrack. Engineers then measure the amount of fuel used.

Last year's winner was the Microjoule from St Sebastien in France, with a remarkable fuel economy of 10,705mpg.
