The 100 mpg DIY Moonbeam
Starting with salvaged scooter parts, Mr. Squibb built his moonbeam as a three-wheeled vehicle and says he gets about 80-85 mpg in regular driving but can hit 105 under the right conditions. The Moonbeam uses a Honda 150cc 4-stroke motor that because of its water-cooling can provide heat to the cabin on cold days. It uses a variable transmission as well so the controls are all hand operated. Just another example of backyard mechanics coming up with something unique to solve a need.
