gontek Posted July 4, 2008 Share Posted July 4, 2008 I have been thinking the Suprex SMART engines would be very good aircraft engines. The daimler-benz Suprex 3 cyl diesels made in Europe have a lot of great qualities for aircraft at around 150lbs, 150 lb/ft torque and 80 hp, running 2500-4500 RPM. And this is cool, the dutch have taken the Suprex engine and made a motorcycle around it with a CVT. http://www.dieselmotorfiets.nl/ They claim 100 mpg, I don't disbelieve it. Expensive though at 17,500 euros. The marines also have a diesel motorcycle that gets 96 mpg. The Marines version has a little less technology in the engine, and is lower power so not as exciting. http://www.dieselmotorcycles.com/ So, anyone want to put the Suprex in their EZ? That would get some long range. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
