And because SAAB's 3-cylinder engine delivers a power stroke for every revolution, it is comparable to a 6-cylinder engine in torque, pickup and hill climb. But unlike a "6", it gets 28 to 38 mpg. It also grows old gracefully, with a minimum of maintenance. Strange powerplant. But very sensible.
With a SAAB, you put oil right in the gas tank (there is no crankcase). And no problem. The engine likes it that way because it continually receives a fresh bath of uncontaminated oil. There are fewer things to worry about: No oil pump. No oil filter. No clogged oil lines. No acids. No sludge. And, of course, no oil change. Strange powerplant? Ingenious powerplant! If you've never driven a car with a 2-stroke engine, see your SAAB dealer. And test-drive a 1964 SAAB. Only $1895, P.O.E. Shopping imports? Write for full descriptive literature on SAAB.
