A Japanese motor team won the fuel-efficiency Shell Eco-Marathon race Thursday in a small town north of London, completing 15.9 km with just 4.836 milliliters of gasoline and beating out 45 other teams from around the world.

The consumption rate translates into an astounding 3,288 km per liter of gasoline but is still short of the 3,600-km-per-liter record marked in a similar race in Scotland last year.
