The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost comes equipped with a turbo charged 4 cylinder motor. We all have vivid memories of the last Mustangs that came with 4 cylinders….please help us forget. This new 2015 Ford Mustang with the EcoBoost really pounds out a lot of power, numbers we find claim 310hp and 320ft lp torque. Not too shabby for a Mustang with 4 cylinders – heck those numbers are impressive.
The good news about the EcoBoost requiring hi-grade fuel is the fact that the fuel prices have dropped about 50% throughout the United States in the past six months. We hope they stay at these prices for many years to come. The EcoBoost really loses a lot of it’s power when regular 87 unleaded is pumped into it’s engine. The web forum www.mustang6g.com has posted reports of large power loses when lower grade fuel is used. We do not have exact numbers, but from what we see over at Mustang6G it would seem the users are right.
To recap, if you own a 2015 Mustang EcoBoost then you will want to make sure you pump in the expensive stuff if you want to achieve ultimate performance. If you aren’t worried about drag racing, then opt for the lower grade fuel and save money in your pocket book.
