The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is a risky place to test new technology, but that’s exactly what Trillion has done with its new fuel technology called HydroDiesel+. The company was the official fuel supplier for the Boxeer racing team and sponsored driver Grégoire Blachon in the 100th hill climb which took place on June 26, 2022.
This Radical fuel that infuses water into nano-level diesel fuel droplets worked remarkably well, propelling Blachon’s Radical race car up the hill in just 12:33:647 (min/sec). This earned Blachon and the Boxeer racing team the fastest time in this year’s race of any diesel-powered competitor – a minute and a half faster than its closest competitor.
We have already written about HydroDiesel+. Trillion has developed this water-in-diesel nanoemulsion technology that infuses a nano-sized chemical solution of water inside diesel fuel droplets. Benefits range from lower costs to significantly reduced emissions, increased engine power, increased fuel efficiency and reduced health effects to humans and animals from air pollution. ‘air. The process even displaces some diesel, so the amount of fuel needed decreases by 20%, but the total volume increases by 125%.
The fact that HydroDiesel+ not only survived, but thrived in its torture test at the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb speaks to its potential as a new and better power source for diesel engines. The proof is in the performance: Blachon’s Radical is powered by a 2.0-litre turbodiesel developing an incredible 500 horsepower, or 250 horsepower per liter of displacement! For comparison, a quad-turbo Bugatti Chiron does just 187.5 hp per litre. In fact, the only car in the world that we know of with a higher power-per-displacement metric is the Koenegsegg Jesko, which is worth billions of dollars.
The use of HydroDiesel+ also does not require modifications for current diesel engines. And Trillion already has the technology to convert current diesel fuel to HydroDiesel+ at any point in the refining and distribution pipeline.
Converting World Diesel to HydroDiesel+ seems like a no-brainer, especially if you like to climb hills. If you’re interested, Trillion is funding its growth on StarEngine, where you can invest in the company’s current solution for meaningful climate change. In the meantime, the company is currently crossing the continental United States for a 7,500-mile roadtrip in a vehicle powered by HydroDiesel+. We’ll know more about their adventure and the data they gathered from it soon.
