Mustang 1000 Lap Challenge

(1/2) > >>

BlackShadow:
Try guessing  the number of lap a new 2011 305hp V6 mustang could do at the Bristol Motor Speedway on a single tank of gas  and win a 2011 v6 mustang.

BlackShadow:
3.7 V6 Mustang  305 horsepower

Soaring:
The Nascars Make  between 80 and 90 laps without a refuel, but I have no idea what a 4.6 will do.

BlackShadow:
 90 laps ..haha  Ford shooting for 900 to 1500 laps on one tank

Jeff73Mach1:
It is only .533 miles around Bristol Motor Speedway.  The gas tank is only 16 gallons.

I am certain the car will be run at an optimum cruising speed.  Ford will bring out a car that has had the computer tweaked, the engine will be a hand built version optimized in every respect for this demonstration.

What transmission and rear end gear ratio will be used?  The optional ratio for the base coupe is something like a 3.31, so perhaps the stock ratio is somewhere around a 3.08 or higher?

I'll bet Ford puts a car on the track that can do better than 40 mpg.

The Ford Fusion Hybrid managed 81+mpg in its similar attempt even though the EPA rates it in the low 40's.

I'd bet it comes in within 15 laps of 1200 laps (in either direction)
