    The gripe thread.

    I agree, My 94 Cobra did 200K unblemished miles. Put a new clutch in at 190K. The guy who bought it from me still has it. And it had cloth interior that LOOKS new, even today. The car is still in pristine shape. Of course, I changed all the fluids regularly.

    Great, now you are making me all paronoid. Good thing I use duckduckgo

    I know for a fact that the PA data is wrong.

    The interior. I need to see the interior. Please!

    will the bronco be cancelled altogether?

    The answer is NOPE. NOT A CHANCE

    Super cool. Just wondering what the reliablity of a mass produced component like this would be. With direct gasoline injection, you always have to worry about fouling up the valves...unless you have a dual system.

    That is excellent. I really like the idea of normalizing the turbo lag. It would make it feel more like a pure electric car. I just can't stand all the other gizmos and tech IN the car. It is funny, but I am old school when it comes to mechanical stuff. As long as they harden the cpus and...

    50% is great. I guess I am behind on some of the new tech. Just like always...

    I hear you, but plenty of waste heat continues to go out the tailpipe and radiator. The MGU-H doesn't appear to be super insulated. Does it have a heat sink?

    Thanks for the link, I did not know it existed, but I have thought about it for years. But, I think this is just using the kinetic energy vs waste heat? How do they convert the heat to electricity?

    Jimmy, I think you and I are on the same page. Just remember there can be advancements on both sides of the equation, meaning, there are technologies that are making the Diesel-cycle better just like the Otto-cycle. Pretty amazing that we have so many engineers on this forum. I wonder what...

    That was my fault, yes hydrophillic.

    Unfortunately, a portion of the energy in gasoline is lost due to thermal losses. If you could recover the waste heat and turn it in to useful energy, it would make it much more efficient. I also think we should stop putting hydrophillic ethanol in our fuels.

    Actually, it may be closer to 75% are below aveage.

    Right, so I said vehicles. I should have stipulated ground vehicles vs airplanes, near earth orbitors, sattelites, rockets or any lighter than air craft. And jet fuel is basically kerosine, which is in the same family as diesel.

    True. But it sounds good to the uninformed. Or do we need to start talking about medians and means.

    Excellent post. I actually did not see he wrote PER POUND vs PER GALLON. I will still say that Diesel is more energy DENSE. I don't know anyone who measures liquid fuel for ground vehicles (not airplanes, sattelites, near earth orbitors, rockets or any lighter than air craft) by it's weight...
