A V8 eng 400 hp 500 TQ, gets 110 Mpg?

Postby Stg1Regal » Sun Feb 27, 2011 2:55 pm

Found this on the Pro-Touring.com web site.

How about a V8 Engine that makes 400 Hp 500 Ft Lbs of Torque, that was installed in a 87 Mustang that got 109 MPG, and on a trip to SEMA fully loaded with two adults, A/C on thru the mountain at 10,000 ft and cruised aboved the posted speed limit, got like 94 mpg.
All that on e85 fuel.

Now I would buy that... and have it retrofitted into my ride!!!

E85 contains less BTU's of energy than gasoline.

I dont beleive this at all.
