I am trying to find out some technical data for the Ford Taurus 1998
and 2005 (both FFV). The former used Methanol 85 while the latter uses
I need to know the following information:
- Horsepower of each of those cars' engines
- Top speed they can reach
- Miles they can go without refueling
I know both use an V6 3.0L engine but I cannot find the above
1998 - 16 gallon tank. If filled to the rim, you may get ~20 gallons
out if you run it dry.
2005 - 18 gallon tank. It may be the same, just a different rating.
Figure 15% to 25% lower fuel economy, & range, on M85 or E85. The
published/rated mpg figures for the cars you are looking at are readily
available on the net.
Soooo, where's the alcohol power race coming up?
