I am trying to find how many kW in a tank of gasoline. I was wondering if someone can confirm this for me. I read in a article on a EV site that he mentioned 10,000 kW, 10 MW (for a tank of gasoline). The guy was from a national lab so I am trying to work the math out. I do not know the discharge time. Thanks
My information/Calculations:
Background: typical four door car, 15 gallon tank
31.6 MJ/L
42.7 MJ/kg
131 MJ/US Gallon
35.97 kWh (per gallon)
539.55 kWh (per tank, 15 gallons)
