The Shell Eco-marathon began in 1939 at a Shell research laboratory in the U.S. as a friendly wager between scientists to see who could get the most miles per gallon from their vehicles. From these humble origins, the organized competition for fuel economy evolved and moved to Europe. The Shell Eco-marathon in its current form began in 1985 in France, attracting thousands of young engineers and scientists from 20 European countries. [11] The Shell Eco-marathon challenges students around the world to design, build, and test vehicles that travel further using less energy. This report includes the methodology, starting with literature review of previous competitors, research work related to the frame and outer shell body design. Then continue with design and analysis stages, followed with fabrication stages. Finally, troubleshooting, modification and optimization of vehicle. The principle of the Shell Eco-marathon is simple: to design and build a vehicle that uses the least amount of fuel to travel the farthest distance. Team can enter futuristic prototypes: streamlined vehicles where the only design consideration is reducing drag and maximizing efficiency. The result of the project, including the result from design stages, analysis of the frame and outer shell body structure. Then the fabrication validated with several testing, such as load and thermal expansion testing. Finally, the fuel consumption testing result after the vehicle finished assemble by taking how far the vehicle can travel with a litre of gasoline.
