Richard, it is not technically possible to produce the same amount of 750 HP and have a fuel consumption saving of 35%, in some but not all cases a turbocharger can give a saving of 5%. Producing HP from an IC engine is dependent on the amount of air (oxygen) that can be crammed into its cylinder’s, this air (oxygen) and fuel will be used at a ratio of 14.7:1 no matter the configuration/size of engine, the ratio of 14.7:1 is called stoichiometric point or lambda=1.0 which is the theoretical correct amount of fuel to combine with all the available oxygen to make the most power.
