Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Will Run on 100 Octane

Apr 07, 2017 08:18 PM EDT | Ileen Jasmine

The upcoming Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is set to be a heck of a beast. It will also have expensive taste.

According to Dodge, the Demon will have a supercharged HEMI engine. As mentioned in the title, this beast will run on either 91-octane unleaded gasoline.

It can also go with 100+ high-octane fuel for a more superior performance. 100+ high-octane fuel can only be found at special shops, drag strips and a number of gas stations which cater to track aficionados.

Future drivers also have the option to mix the two types of fuel. And yes, it won't damage the HEMI engine as long as the octane level doesn't get too diluted.

Either way, it is pretty much a guarantee that the fuel expenses won't be cheap. That will not be just because of the fuel price, it is also due to the fact the every feature on the Demon is designed to burn as much fuel as possible.

It features a torque converter and a massive supercharger, and those are not cheap to run. It is also important to mention that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be more powerful than the Hellcat.

Yes, it is 200 pounds lighter than its predecessor and it does have removable back seats. However, those impressive features doesn't mean it gets decent fuel economy.

Needless to say, the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon will be extra powerful. This drag racer will also be street legal, much to the delight of the fans.

Dodge wrote - Challenger SRT Demons will roll off the assembly line with a powertrain control module configured for 91-octane premium unleaded gasoline. However, using the Demon Crate tool box, owners can hook up direct connection performance parts that include a module for high-octane fuel and a center stack switch bank that includes a high octane button.

The Demon uses sensors to monitor the octane level in its fuel tank. This means that if the fuel is too diluted, the high-octane feature will not activate.
