This upcoming 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon has been teased a total of 12 times earlier in the past few weeks. The high-octane fuel can already be found at many major gas stations but if you prefer regular 91-octane fuel, a button on the dash lets you swap between the two.
Whichever route one chooses to take, odds are it won't be a cheap one; especially considering just about every feature on this auto is created to burn as much fuel as possible.
With the new bits plugged in, the Demon's V8 can adjust its spark timing to take advantage of the higher-octane fuel. This is when the air and fuel mix ignites before the piston is fully extended. But for those who choose to drag with race gas of 100 octane or higher, the Demon Crate will include a second powertrain control module. In order to prevent damage to the motor the Demon's PCM will know via the knock sensors if the high octane fuel is too low for the mixture and override the system by just running on the premium gas. Instead, the vehicle uses the premium fuel calibration to get the most out of the engine without risking knock.
Carolinas bracing for next round of severe weather
That number puts the Peach State in the lead for tornado reports , surpassing the usual leaders in the Great Plains. Thursday's tornado started near Highway 168 around 1:10 p.m., then raced northeast and north along a 4.7 mile path.
The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be the first vehicle made by company that will have the design that will be feasible for both track and road.
To prepare the Demon to utilize this high-octane fuel variety, drivers will have to use separately-shipped Direct Connection Performance parts. The New York International Auto Show will run from April 14, through April 23rd, 2017. Dodge still has one video up its sleeve, which it will debut tomorrow, so check back in then to get your final fix.
