Anyone know what the gas mileage on the new SRT-8 is speculated to be?

That question is not worth worth trying to guess. Just think drive a block and look for a gas station.

Sticker says 14/20. I've gotten 21 on the highway on occasion, but the way I drive in the city, I get about 10 or 11 there. Damn lead foot...lol.

Din't buy it for the gas mileage

Well,

I am proud to say that the SRT-8 is not a green car!!!! I found out the hard way.


Burned CD of Disturbed's Best $3.00
Full tank of gas for my SRT8 $52.00
New pair of Oakley Sunglasses $175.00
Having a fully charged cell phone to call your best friend for gas Priceless

Sticker was 14/20, but I get 18-19 around town and 22-24 on the highway trips, so I've found reality to be much better than sticker. I keep my tire pressure at 36 cold, which I've compared to 32 and it DOES make a difference of about 1-2 mpg. I can't really tell much difference in the harshness of the ride either.

You must drive like my grandma. I get 12 in the city if I'm lucky.:lol:

The estimated 14/20 is pretty accurate. I get a solid 14 to 15mpg in the city and on the highway it varies from 20 to 24 depending on speed, or whether I'm driving up hill etc....

The local fuzz came out with the 2007 strategy: they are gunna chalk cars parked on the neighborhood trails for 72-hour ticket status. Left the old T-bird on the street regardless. Yo baby. Heard this Sunday, drove the Beast to work Monday anyway. And today. Damn thing is addictive. Nuff said.

On the on-ramp to the costway (toll road) this morning, for an unknown reason, I reset the push-water mileage ****e thingie. Have no explanation. Seconds later, I launched on behind an aggresively driven Pius.

Did I win?

Next question, first question. 18 miles later, the Beast was reading 21.7 mpg after hop-scotching with a Black SRT8 (Charger, of course!) all the way in to my exit ramp.

As I pulled in to an early-bird parking slot in my most-urban parking deck, I thought to myself, I love this thing!

I average between 8 and 9 mpg in the city. The highest I have ever seen on the highway was 12mpg.

I do tend to drive hard when I am not sitting in traffic. I think the pollution+traffic+my right foot when the roads are clear = wonderful gas mileage. Then again I didn't buy this car for great gas mileage.
