The EPA has determined that the typical supercar’s engine coolers are rated at 20 psi of coolant flow.
This is very high, but not unheard of.
The EPA found that the standard supercar coolant flows from the compressor at around 12 psi.
For comparison, the average home refrigerator, refrigerator/freezer and refrigerator/cooler are rated between 3 and 8 psi.
In other words, you’re likely to get much cooler than the EPA rated by a factor of 20 or more.
The problem is that many supercars have no cooling system at all, or even have little cooling.
Some even have no air conditioning.
The EPA is now studying these cars and trying to figure out whether they can meet the 20 psi standard, so the agency can adjust the EPA’s regulations.
The agency says it will take several years to determine if there is a way to do so.
