OT: The Ferrari 360's dreadful gas milage

Post by Arthur Luxury-Yac » Mon, 04 Jun 2001 02:44:06


I was reading an American auto magazine where the 360 was compared to
the Porsche 911 turbo and other sports cars.  The test claimed the
Ferrari 360's petrol consumption was 8 to 20 mpg.  The Porsche range
was 20 to 25 mpg.  Why is the Ferrari so miserable?  The car is quite
pretty but the Porsche appears to be a better choice.

You wouldn't be concerned about gas mileage on a Ferrari, would you?

Indeed, if you had to worry about fuel costs then you can't afford to own a
Ferrari in the first instance! ;-)

A Porch is never the right choice.  100K for an "econo-box" shaped
like a Porch?  Why?

If your decision whether to buy a Ferrari or not is based on logic I can
tell you now you don't want one. You buy a Ferrari because you want a
Ferrari, not because you think the mpg figures are good.

If you posted some kind of idea in context of what you were talking about,
you would't get this reply.

What's the average mpg of a F1 car?

They're gas guzzlers, thats for sure.
A few years ago I worked out what the fuel consumption was
in terms of how fast the water tap in my kitchen had to be
running in order to get the same liquid flow rate... it was
quite fast.
The numbers go something like this... when the cars pit in
a 2 stop strategy, they'll take on about 90 litres of fuel.
This 90 litres will last about half an hour.
Thats 3 litres per minute... or to put it another way, the fuel
flow rate will fill a 1.5 litre coke bottle in 30 seconds.
Try it out.

cheers...
