Does an Audi R8 runs on gas as we use today or does it run on Ethenoal in the future?

Hi dadscrazy! (Wow, that's a plot seed if I ever read one ...) ... The term you are looking for is "a flex-fuel vehicle" and I do not see any indication that there are plans for the R8 to be a flex-fuel vehicle. Sorry ... I have no good word on a green argument to make to your family! Good luck on your quest!

Hi there, The only fuel I could see Audi using would be diesel since in Europe this is a very popular option. Audi has invested a large amount of money into diesel engines through their racing programs and I would suspect we will see an R8 diesel soon. Cheers

Currently is runs on Premium 91+ octane. In other words, the gas we use today.

Sorry, my post was unclear. I see them first releasing a gas version of the engine and then possibly releasing a diesel. The current version is a gasoline based engine.

Try 92 Octane or above.

Currently, there is talk of putting the big V12 TDI from the Q7 into the R8. Doing so will allow the R8 to run on BioDiesel if the owner desires. The diesel will also give the R8 a huge boost in power and torque.

yes, Audi is indeed coming with a diesel version version of the R8. however it will not be the 12 cylinder, but only an 8. They made one as a concept but the engine was far too long and the cabin space was too greatly compromised.
