Biggest advance since cup holder covers
Another reason to buy the SVR! Now since I have a lead foot, it may not help at all in actual miles per tank though! But if I baby it, perhaps we can push well above 300 miles per tank!
Not sure if GR is an engineer, I’m sure he will tell us. DP
Maybe not an engineer . . . but he knows all. Just ask him. >
It may come as a surprise to many of you here on this forum ,
but *GR* , is indeed an *ENGINEER* , as a matter of fact !!!
Since one definition of "engineer" is , *the operator or supervisor of an Engine* !!!
My job is actually MORE than just an "engineer" , because *GR* not only controls the engine ,
he also controls the entire BIG RIG he is driving !!!>
Now , to the question at hand , concerning a change in MPG due to weight !!!
I cannot answer that question for you ,
however , I can give you SOME information to ponder !!!
The new total of "usable" gallons is *21.7* , and the old total was *16.6* !
That is a difference of *5.1* gallons !
Gasoline weighs *6.3* pounds per gallon !
So , *5.1 gallons* X *6.3 pounds* = *32.13 pounds* !
That being said , I will now allow an "engineer" (of different sorts) ,
to let us all know what difference *32.13 pounds* will make in MPG's !!!
GOOD DAY , Ladies & Gentlemen !!!0
Niiice !!!Well let’s looks at the numbers
For every 100lb of weight that effects gas mileage by 2%
As you drive the gas is used so then this number goes down in a linear compound fractional way. However gas is more densce in cool weather so depends on the temperature, then factor in the elevation above sea level. Along with the type of tires your using. For the best results you should take your durometer readings of your tires after they are up to operating temperature. Then factor in the rolling resistance of tire weather it’s filled with air or nitrogen.
So based on my calculations of 32.1 LB of fuel wight when the car is full it will effect gas mileage by 0.006%
Your mileage may vary
I believe they used the space that is used for the blue stuff the diesel cars use. My guess is maybe a tank swap will work once we get a 2019 we can check.Niiice !!!
But the bigger question to ponder is....can they engineer an easy upgrade for the 2017-18's and for the $64 question...HOW MUCH!!!
