Fueling Around With Top Fuel Dragsters

Top Fuel dragsters are some of the most incredible machines on the planet. They put out around 7,000-8,000 horsepower, can get into the 325 mph range, and it reportedly takes 900 horsepower just to spin the supercharger on the V8 engines alone. That kind of output requires a boatload of fuel.

This is an old video, but itís still absolutely insane display of just how much fuel a SINGLE cylinder pumps through first at idle and then at full throttle. Itís like somebody unplugged a dam. Just for for a few seconds, though. According to Motor Trend, these cars pump out about 77 gallons per minute, and a typical run uses about 22 gallons
