What is an Economy Run?

The Economy Run is a race for the best fuel mileage.

Following an on-street course, drivers endeavor to get the best possible fuel mileage under actual road conditions. It is a test of both the vehicle and driver, encouraging safe and economical driving skill, and a fun opportunity for both seasoned and novice Corvair drivers. Starting the run with full fuel tank, the vehicle is driven a known distance over public roads and then the volume of gas needed to refill the tank is measured. The goal is to achieve the highest MPG within a vehicle category. What Fun!!

We follow The Corvair Society of America or CORSA rulebook and operating procedure for Economy Runs as this is a regional CORSA event.
