Re: January 2011 Chat with Eric Kuehn
Hi Eric! I just wanted to thank you for opening up your time for a few hours today! Its great that we get the opportunity to ask you some questions.
What I have is more of a concern.... Im in the market for a new truck and the appeal of the EcoBoost engine is really attractive to me. I do a lot of towing on the weekends from things like PWC's, Boats, Motorcycle trailers that sort of thing. I know the EcoBoost probably gets great gas mileage but what does it do under load? In my mind even though it does make the power and torque numbers, how are they compared to v8's? The Turbos must work pretty hard to make those number and when the turbos spin that equals higher fuel consumption.
Thanks for your time!
