He gave part of the answer in one of the interviews. High compression.
Ethanol is harder to ignite that gas. You can do it with higher compression, but controlling when the spark hits and when it combusts under
compression is the tricky part that he has a handle on.
Ethanol, like Methanol runs cooler than gas, so you can run it under more compression with less fuel and not have an over heat problem.
This is real, this is the time, and the oil assholes can't do anything about it.
They are getting our money to help them this time.
Honda has already done this right in front of everybody and they all just stand there and go, duuugggghhhh!!!!!!!!!!
Try the Indycar series. 100% Ethanol, and it get four times the mileage then did Methanol.
They have been running this for three years. Honda won't let the team even touch the engines. They get to check the oil and that is about it.
The Foyts are good friends of mine, so I have it first hand.
If ATS reporter wants an interview with them, I can make it happen. Why not find out what the top family in all of Motorsports thinks of this deal.
