Stafford, Kenneth A.
The objective of this MQP was to design, build and test a high efficiency moped. This moped would be an alternative solution to current mopeds available. The purpose of this moped project was not only to achieve high fuel efficiency, but also to fully utilize the bicycle components, use an alternative fuel, and keep the design simple enough to be easily made from a standard bicycle as a kit. A propane engine, the use of the existing bicycle drive train, and a dog clutch were the main parameters made at the beginning of the project. All three of those parameters were met along with the fuel efficiency specification at a mile per gallon rating of over 200.
