Eibach Pro-Plus gives 2010 Camaro SS a 13% Mileage Increase

Post by Luigi » Thu Jan 21, 2010 10:23 pm

Is this a component of the Callaway Camaro? I assume that the Multi-Pro is optional?

Enjoy!

Eibach R&D has recently revealed that in their rigorous, scientifically valid on-road testing, their hot new 2010 Camaro SS test vehicle showed an amazing 13-percent increase in mileage, over the exact same vehicle in stock condition, when fitted with the complete Eibach Pro-Plus combo of Eibach Pro-Kit performance springs and sway bars.

In previous testing, designed, observed and validated by Test Pilots™ Independent Testing Services, the 2010 Camaro SS showed impressive performance gains in 0-60 acceleration, all-out cornering, slalom and road course lap times: eibach.com/camaro
The Camaro SS, of course, also looked, steered and handled far better with the Eibach Pro-Plus suspension setup, with no sacrifice in ride comfort or compliance.

With fuel mileage a growing concern, Eibach R&D went out and performed mileage testing under rigidly controlled environmental and procedural conditions. The Camaro SS was run over the same 167.7-mile freeway course, in both stock and Eibach-equipped configurations.

Testing was done starting at 5:00 AM on consecutive Saturday mornings, and the weather conditions were almost identical, with no more than a 2-degree variation in temperature. Wind and traffic were minimal on both test runs, due to the weekend scheduling and early time of day. The same precise filling techniques were used, by the same experienced test driver, and the Camaro SS was run at a steady 70 mph, with cruise control engaged to eliminate any driver inconsistency.

In stock condition, the 2010 Camaro SS recorded 23.34 miles per gallon. With the Eibach Pro-Plus installed, mileage shot up to an impressive 26.40 mpg a full 13% improvement.*

Why such a huge difference in efficiency, just from lowering the chassis? Because lowering the Camaro SS an inch significantly reduces its aerodynamic frontal area, and minimizes drag-causing turbulence between the road and the car.

What does this mean for you, in dollars and cents? Over 100,000 miles—just 10% of Eibach's legendary million-mile warranty—the Eibach-equipped Camaro SS would save 494 gallons of gas. At $3.00 a gallon, that's a huge savings of $1,482.00.*

Looks. Performance. And Efficiency. What else would you expect from Eibach—the suspension components engineered with The Will to Win?

Stock: 167.7 miles driven 7.184 gallons used = 23.34 MPG*
w/Pro-Kit: 167.7 miles driven 6.35 gallons used = 26.4 MPG*

Identical highway route of 167.7 miles (HWY 15N & 10E to Palm Desert and back)
Cruise control set at 70 MPH the entire way (takes away any human bias)
Each start time 5:00 AM Saturday morning
August 15th: temp. start 61°F, finish 74°F
September 26th: temp. start 62°F, finish 76°F
Very little wind both times.
Start and finish same gas station, same pump and pumped full with 10 clicks.
*Your results may vary. Testing and results certified by Eibach R&D. Same 2010 Chevrolet Camaro 2SS 6 Speed Automatic, tested: 8/15/09 & 9/26/09.

-Pro-kit + Anti-Roll-Kit = Pro-Plus Performance Handling Package.
-Performance Springs and Sway Bars = Superior Handling for the Serious Enthusiast
-Precise Turn-in Response, Improved Handling and Enhanced Cornering Grip-in any Performance-Driving Situation
-Stop Quicker, Corner Faster and get better MPG*
-Simple Bolt-On, With No Modifications: Just Install,
-Set the Alignment and Carve
-Excellent Ride Quality
-Million-Mile Warranty

If you live for the corners, the Eibach Pro-Plus Performance Handling Package delivers. Eibach Pro-Plus packages include our legendary Eibach Pro-Kit springs along with matching Anti-Roll-Kit sway bars.

The Eibach Pro-Kit lowers your car's center of gravity, reducing squat during acceleration, body roll in corners and excessive nose-dive under braking. Add the Eibach Anti-Roll-Kit sway bars—with increased roll stiffness, compared to stock bars—and you get pure, balanced-handling perfection.

With the Eibach Pro-Plus installed you will immediately experience more-precise turn-in response, improved handling, and enhanced cornering grip—in any performance-driving situation. The Eibach Pro-Plus is designed and tested to work well with either factory or aftermarket performance dampers.

*Your results may vary. As we have learned from racing and independent testing, lowering your car or truck's ride height also improves your aerodynamic efficiency by forcing more air over the car and less underneath (where most of the drag is found on any vehicle), resulting in higher top speeds on the track and better MPG on the highway.

Mine (2011 Synergy Green) has the non adjustable Eibach package and I did get 26.6 mpg with cruise controled 73 mph. So yes it's claim is True.

The Camaro is a great car but missed the corvette more than I thought I would. So I traded for this. I am much happier now.
