    Yeah, the crossover has kinda killed the wagon. Which sucks twice, because crossovers are mostly ugly and no more useful (sometimes less-so)

    Also part of the package is a new dual fuel pump that delivers gasoline to the cylinders at 3626 psi.

    That seems like a lot...

    It's quite a bit. Conventional DI engines are in the 2000-2500psi range.

    Pretty low for a diesel.

    Wonder if we'll see common rail DI gas engines?
    Whoomah!

    Oh, I guess we do--derp. Must not need to run the same sort of pressures as diesel; lighter weight = better atomization?
    Whoomah!

    I think *most* common rail diesels run 2x,000 psi - there are some that run more, but most are in the 25k-29k range IIRC.

    Consider me "undecided"....


    At the moment, I'm trying to decide if the +60hp and +2 cylinders are worth the $10000 premium of an SS over a Genesis Coupe.

    I'm aiming as something "fun" and yet, highway friendly, as we are hoping to do some weekend travels around. I don't want something to beat me to death on the highway.

    Pretty much as square one.
