1 liter 150 hp engine 50 mpg???

By Fred W.

If you can make a 2 liter turbo engine with 300+ hp get over 30 mpg, why don't you try to make a 1 liter turbo engine with 150 hp that gets 50 mpg?  It will sell like crazy!   I once had a car in 1984 that was 1.8 liters with 150 turbo hp and it moved 0-60 in 8 secs which is plenty fast for the average Joe.  It got about 28 mpg on the highway for real.  30 years later, why not consider making an engine like I mentioned in the first sentence?  It will sell like hotcakes!
