Looking to replace my current DD. Interested in hearing what gas mileage you guys are getting. 14mpg scares me somewhat for a daily driver.

I get anywhere from 20-25 on the interstate but in town it varies from 11-15 depending on the mood I'm in. Honestly if you are considering an SRT-8 or anything close to it in performance ya just need to say what I did. F MPG!

If nickels, dimes and MPG are important to you don't buy an SRT8, if having fun and kicking ass are important then go for it.

Going to work, I average about 18 mpg, which is about 75/25 hwy / city. Running a tank thru on 100% hwy got me about 24

I get about 15 or 16 if I'm real easy on it. But that's no fun at all. I did it just to see what kind of mpg I could get. With this car the last thing I worry about is mpg. But, that's the point isn't it?

highway I average 24-26, city it gets down to about 15-17, but I just cruise, I don't "drive it like I stole it" but that is just me.

The other day I checked my mileage after running out a tank. It was all city driving and it was slightly less than 10 mpg.

I just came back from test driving one (300 Srt8). As a daily driver I need something with better mpg. I have a vette putting 431 to the wheels, so that suits my power needs.

Thanks for the input.

I normally get between 11 and 14 mpg, mostly "around town" driving ... I just CAN'T keep my foot out of it for an entire tank of gas, or it might be a little better ...

According to the EVIC, the last two tanks I ran through I got 17 mpg avg.
2/3 hwy 1/3 city..... I have my foot in it alot though. I don't really care though... if I have to commute 300 miles a week I want to have fun doing it!!

Mostly city

I get about 11mpg (12 if I'm lucky / easy). Most I've gotten on a trip was 18. I admit I drive to fast and just accept that I pay out my a$$. It's worth it.

I drive strictly city, not too lightly.......and average 15.5 like clockwork. This seems to be the average.....for mixed driving.

20mpg+ on the highway, if I'm being nice. 15-17 around town in Detroit traffic. If you look real close, I think you can actually see the gas gauge moving though. (-:

One funny note is that during a recent SRT Engineer Chat, the tossed out there that at top speed, a full 19 gallon tank is gone in 37 minutes:) I assume this was done during testing:)
