Escape from Berkeley?

Rhino user, Jack McCornack is looking to change the way we fill up our tanks. And if he figures out how to get up to a hundred miles per gallon he could win the 10 million dollar Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE.

Sponsored by Mother Earth News, Jack with his now famous car, Max, has already won the Escape from Berkeley (by any non-petroleum means necessary) last October.

Josh Zepps from Brink on Discovery's Science Channel tracked down Jack to learn more about how a guy in his garage in Southern Oregon is taking on the automotive giants for the industry's biggest prize.
