Looks like you did your homework! Now find out how long it would take that purple monkey to row a canoe up a tree backwards Just kidding.

That is actually pretty interesting, but where would you find that out?

Oh yeah and I didn't know that.

Thats why I hate being behind a car that is barely running and looks like a smoke screen when they take off... Those cars should be banned from the street. Steve

My hemi does WAY better than that. First it only gets 15mpg so I get to use more gas than the average car, then I put out a bunch more alphabet soup - just try to stand next to my exhaust for 10 seconds without your eyes burning out of their sockets and your lungs disintegrating into a liquid organic slime.
