I've had a look at the Science Museum records for our 1899 Stanley Locomobile, and a c.1900 Locomobile Power Plant. Not much about performanse - the 1899 is quoted as 180 psi working pressure and 15 mph cruising speed, with 10 mpg petrol consumption.
The Locombile power Plant label just mentions 150psi working pressure. This is a fascinating exhibit - a complete, original sectioned set of machinery which I am pretty sure is the remains of a car acquired in 1911.
