STUDIO CITY (CBS) — Three UCLA students are competing to break the super-milage record using green technology in Shell’s Eco-marathon.

Chris Underhill, Stephen Chow, and Joseph Lee visited the KCAL9 studios Tuesday to talk about their fuel-efficient vehicle. They are trying to beat the 2,565 mile per gallon record set by the 2011 winners.

Shell’s Eco-Marathon is a challenge for high school and college students to design and build a vehicle that will travel the farthest difference using the least amount of energy.

The Eco-marathon Americas 2012 will take place March 29-April 1, 2012 on the streets of downtown Houston, Texas. Pedestrians at Discovery Green will be replaced by cars of the future, as the teams take to the streets to test their vehicles.
