UMaine’s Clean Snowmobile Featured in Engadget Article

Engadget published the article, “UMaine’s clean snowmobile runs on (a lot of) natural gas,” about a machine customized by University of Maine mechanical engineering students. The students say the snowmobile is the only natural gas-powered snowmobile in the U.S., according to the article. The Arctic Cat XF1100 was customized by the students to compete in the Society of Automotive Engineers Clean Snowmobile Challenge, which was founded to create machines capable of running in Yellowstone National Park where rules about noise and emissions keep gas snowmobiles out, the article states.
