120hp Ford B-Max Ecoboost animation
The B-MAX brings new standards of fuel efficiency to the compact MAV class
with Ford's latest petrol and diesel powertrains equipped with low-CO2
The petrol engine line-up is led by the three-cylinder 1.0-litre Ford EcoBoost petrol engine, available in 100PS
and 120PS versions. Equipped with the Ford Auto-Start-Stop system as
standard, the 120PS EcoBoost engine
achieves class-leading CO2 emissions of 114g/km and fuel consumption of
4.9l/100km (57.6mpg). Other petrol engine options include the 90PS
1.4-litre Duratec unit, or the 105PS 1.6-litre Duratec engine which is
paired with Ford's high-efficiency PowerShift six-speed automatic
transmission with advanced dual clutch technology.
B-MAX is available with a choice of two Duratorq TDCi diesel engines; each
offering best-in-class fuel efficiency. The 95PS 1.6-litre engine delivers
CO2 emissions of 104g/km and fuel consumption of 4.0l/100km (70.6mpg). The
75PS 1.5-litre diesel, closely derived from the 1.6-litre engine, appears
for the first time in Ford's European product range. It achieves CO2
emissions of 109g/km and fuel consumption of 4.1l/100km (68.9mpg).
ECOnetic Technologies fitted as standard to all B-MAX vehicles include
Electric Power Assisted Steering, which requires less energy than hydraulic
power assisted steering systems, Gear Shift Indicator to highlight the most
efficient gear changing points, and the Ford Eco Mode driver information
system which helps drivers adopt a more economical driving style. Smart
Regenerative Charging, which charges the battery at the most economical
point in a journey, is also featured on the 1.0-litre EcoBoost and 1.5/1.6-litre Duratorq engines.
Jaw-dropping Ferrari 458 Italia Action
Ferrari is showing off the 562 horsepower car with
improvements to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions that, they say, sets
"the benchmark in this segment."
Using a mid-rear mounted 4.5-liter V8 engine, the 458 goes from 0-100 km/h
in under 3.4 seconds on its way to a top speed of 325 km/h. The driver
controls the engine with the Getrag F1 transmission, a 7-speed dual-clutch
gearbox. It has a 407 hp to tonne power-to-weight ratio, with a dry weight
of about 1380 kg.

F150 in the Snow
Having some fun after first major snow storm in South Lake Tahoe. 6"
procomp lift with coilovers. 37x13.5-17 dick cepek fun country 2's.
Video of where I cut the inner fender to fit 37's with a 6" lift:
Also, dick cepek tires run small for a 37 so you may have trouble fitting
something like a toyo MT which run large
Volkswagen TSI Engine 3D Animation
https://www.eurocarnews.com - Volkswagen AG - The most effective means for
reducing fuel consumption is so-called downsizing. By reducing displacement
and thereby lowering frictional losses, a lower specific fuel consumption
can be achieved, and this goes hand in hand with better efficiency. The
innovative path to the future is the combination of Supercharger and turbocharger. The Supercharger compensates for typical drive-off
weakness at low revs of purely turbocharged gasoline engines, while the turbocharger really puts out at higher revs. This
combination of two types of chargers is unique among engines mass-produced
Test Drive: 2011 Ford F150 Lariat EcoBoost
For this test drive, we go out in the all new 2011 Ford F150 Lariat,
equipped with the new 3.5L EcoBoost
Twin turbo V6. The purpose of the drive
is to demonstrate the new EcoBoost
engine in varied road conditions. A small portion of the drive also
explains the "Torture Test" that Ford put the engine through, before
releasing it onto the market.

EcoBoost's Secret Sauce
Stricter fuel-economy standards are forcing automakers to rethink their
vehicle strategies. The price of oil is also playing a big role in this
upheaval. One way OEMs can meet these tough new laws -- and keep consumers
from going bankrupt when they fill the tank -- is by offering smaller,
forced-induction engines. There are many examples of this in the market
today, but probably the best known is Ford's EcoBoost lineup. Learn what makes Dearborn's
implementation of this technology different from that of other automakers.
