Was watching the Malaysian Grand Prix and if the cars are using 21 liters aka around 5.55 US Gallons at 56 laps without fueling. 3.444 mile track, rounding numbers to 5.5 and 3.5 these F1 cars are making 35 MPG! and doing 100-200MPH while getting it..............!

Why aren't we using these engines in our everyday cars???!!!

Aside from the obvious noise violations and the fact the power is where the revs are, meaning you need to use several thousand to get the thing to move, as there is little torque in an F1 engine.
There is no way in hell F1 cars that crack 18,000 rpm and pull 1 G of negative acceleration just due to aero drag, use 21 litres to cover 300-310km. You would only see 1 second difference between start and end of race, (as 10kg of fuel is worth between 2-4 tenths depending on track), whereas we are seeing closer to 5 or 6, which implies a weight of at least 150kg in fuel. At this point, we get 50 litres per 100km, or rougly 5 MPG.
Where did you get the value for 21 litres for a race distance from?
