Well the thing is that Ford had 31 mpg put on the paper to be safe... the car actually can get 32 mpg on the highway... not to mention at Bristol the turns can carry you through the track and put in the draft factor. They will get it done for sure.

Okay so heres an update from facebook...

They launched today at 7am. They are using cruise control at 45mph, no a/c on, windows cracked due to good temperature, and still going strong. As of 10:30am they hit 275 laps which is a little over 1/4 done.

Now for the BIG shocker! The computers are linked from the cars fuel managment system to a central computer to track fuel mileage and the average mpg is....


get ready for it






get ready........

45 MPG!!!

This car is breaking records left and right. We are currently watching history of muscle cars change forever. 305hp and 45mpg on a live test... This car is amazing! They could probably do 600 miles (1200) laps if they wanted at this pace.
