Default Re: the 157mpg car

The problem isn't in power, an electric car with the right batteries and motor will out torque any car one the road, its how long they last. My car can go 157 miles per hour, I just wish it could go 157 miles on one gallon of gas lol

I'd get one of those in a flash if I had the money, seems great. Engine output (without the turbo) would be lower than my lawnmower however. I'm guessing it would suffer more in city driving than the average car (highway vs city percentage wise), due to the fact the turbo would be kicking in very very often while accelerating.
