Dodge SRT Demon packs a special ECU for race gas

Dodge Challenger SRT Demon teasers

The 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon is less than a week out from its big debut in the Big Apple, and today Dodge has dropped the final bit of info in its long-drawn-out teaser campaign for the auto. The track preferred high-octane fuel is readily available at select gas stations, specialty shops and drag strips.

By default, the Demon will require unleaded premium gas - either 91 or 93 octane, depending on location.

The keys to unleashing the SRT Demon's full fury are in the Demon Crate shipped separate: Direct Connection Performance parts that include a new powertrain control module (PCM) calibrated for the high-octane fuel and a new switch bank for the center stack that includes a high octane button.

Whichever route one chooses to take, odds are it won't be a cheap one; especially considering just about every feature on this vehicle is created to burn as much fuel as possible. The higher-octane gasoline is pumped into the regular tank, and if the combined octane rating is too low (as monitored by engine knock sensors), a message appears alerting the driver that the high-output fuel setting-which changes spark timing-is not available.

Tim Tebow homers in first minor league at-bat
The 29-year-old known for his dedicated fan following is now on pace to hit 140 home runs this season, at his current rate. The ball struck a fence above the wall, bounced back into play and Tebow stopped at second base ahead of the throw.

Dodge tells us the high-octane fuel will be required to hit the car's maximum power rating, estimated to be well over the 707-horsepower rating of the Hellcat.

The final teaser video before the Dodge Demon is finally revealed on April 11 has been released.

I originally predicted that the Dodge Challenger SRT Demon would be run on the souls of the impure. How does the auto know?

To help the Demon guzzle gas like a beer-swilling sailor on shore leave, Dodge will include two fuel pumps instead of the one used by Hellcat, as well as larger fuel injectors with higher rail pressure.
