As stated, it turns at 9500 RPM. Over the whole course, it will turn 712.5 revolutions.Fuel engines are, in a way, rpm limited. The slow combustion of nitro (the reason you see the wing-high flames) is to blame. RPMs very seldom go over 8000 in a race. They begin (called the "hit") at the starting line at about 7200, then the clutch 'catches up' to the engine rpm, and you will hear another slight drop in rpm at mid-track when the clutch discs 'lockup'. Then the engine will again accelerate to the finish line; about 8000rpm. At the current performance levels, the actual total times the engine turns over during a run (1000ft. track and @8000 max rpm) would be closer to 500. Therefore each cylinder fires 250 times per run. Sure seems like a $75,000 engine could do that. But a lot of times, they CAN'T!Your question itself is erroneous. You obviously were trying to ask how many revolutions the engine's crankshaft would turn during the 4.5 seconds it takes to run the quarter mile. Yes it, would turn 712.5 revolutions.But you didn't ask how many revolutions it would turn; you asked how many revolutions per minute(i.e., RPM) it would turn. Not the information you were seeking. Just as the distance from my home to Miami (1426 miles) says nothing about speed (1426 miles per hour).

It depends on the rate of acceleration. A top fuel dragster can accelerate at 160 ft/s2. That means it can hit 30 mph (44 ft/s) in about 0.3 seconds. From a standing start, assuming constant acceleration, it will have traveled only about 20 feet. Your mileage may vary.

The airline says the plane burns just 3.1 liters of fuel per passenger per 100 kilometers (a little more than three quarts of fuel per passenger every 60 miles).

The information in the question seems to be garbled.First, you do realise that at 10 mph, a 311 mile journey will take 31.1 hours!Second, 57 gallons at 10 mph does not say anything about the fuel efficiency of your vehicle and so there is no way to calculate how much fuel you would need for a 311 mile journey.The information in the question seems to be garbled.First, you do realise that at 10 mph, a 311 mile journey will take 31.1 hours!Second, 57 gallons at 10 mph does not say anything about the fuel efficiency of your vehicle and so there is no way to calculate how much fuel you would need for a 311 mile journey.The information in the question seems to be garbled.First, you do realise that at 10 mph, a 311 mile journey will take 31.1 hours!Second, 57 gallons at 10 mph does not say anything about the fuel efficiency of your vehicle and so there is no way to calculate how much fuel you would need for a 311 mile journey.The information in the question seems to be garbled.First, you do realise that at 10 mph, a 311 mile journey will take 31.1 hours!Second, 57 gallons at 10 mph does not say anything about the fuel efficiency of your vehicle and so there is no way to calculate how much fuel you would need for a 311 mile journey.

That there is no fuel in it!

It wouldn't stand a chance. Dragsters cross that 1/4 mile at speeds of up to 300 mph, and the Veyron can only do 268. Plus, it needs miles of straight road to achieve that, while the dragster needs only 1,320 feet.
