Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta 6 i He LETHBRIDGt HtRALu Friday, November 8, 1974 Car rally teaches youth importance of gas economy Vehicles averaged 19 mpg The meter on the gas- oline pump crept slowly toward the four gallon mark. As it stopped at 3.8 gallons and filled the gas- oline tank of the car, part of the assembled crowd cheered while another group groaned. This unusual setting for a high school competitive event was a gasoline sta- tion in San Diego, Califor- nia and the event itself was the first Champion Spark Plug Company Economy Rally The assembled students and teachers were concerned with every drop of gas used. The Rally, inaugurated by Champion, sought to show that gas economy, safe driving and good fun can be achieved by even the most inexperienced drivers All competitors from 10 high schools in San Diego were recent driver training graduates and newly licensed to drive. Yet the results they achieved in getting exceptional gas mileage would do credit to experienced drivers. RALLY WAS CAREFULLY MONITORED Objectives of the rally were simple. Each car, containing a driver, stu- dent navigator and teacher observer, covered a course of 60 miles. The course included city streets, ex- pressway and rural roads. The driver was to complete the course in 90 minutes. Contestants were briefed on economical driving techniques and re- quirments before they departed. There were advised to make sure their cars were in top condition with a tun- ed engine, proper tire pressure and correct wheel alignment. Average mileage per car was 19.220 m.p.g. Winning car was a 73 import with average mileage of 27.836 m.p.g. Cars ranged in size from small imports to full size American models.

A word to the elders High school students par- ticipating in this uni- que rally were carefully briefed on the fine points of how to drive econ- omically, before the start of the test. You can believe how attentively they listened to the advice given them.
