just surious, wanted to ask u guys. how horrible is the srt8 on gas. im really considering making the huuuuuuuuge upgrade, being i have 2.7L, and i just wanna hear from owners
I think for a 5.7L to get 24-25 on the hwy (now 25-26 with Predator)... its pretty good gas mileage. If I had got an SUV, I would be 25% lower even with a 6 cyl (something like the SRT).yeah all chargers get crappy mileage, the 2.7 is way too small of a motor for such a huge car, so it gets bad mileage due to that, the 3.5 gets crappy mileage for whatever reason, the RT gets the best for the size of the motor vs. how much power and gas consumed... srt is just a beast that drinks gas.
Bottom line, all chargers get sh*tty gas mileage.
yea thats what im saying, the 5.7 is the best mix of mileage and power if that's of concern, but it'd take a 6.1 anyway. I just dont need the insurance or the possible accidents, im immature im the guy racing all the time. I'll drive a slow car thanks.I think for a 5.7L to get 24-25 on the hwy (now 25-26 with Predator)... its pretty good gas mileage.

People with 6 cyl chargers wanting a tuner... but people asking about gas mileage with an SRT8 is a close second.Gas mileage and SRT8 shouldn't be used in the same sentence...if gas mileage is a concern, look elsewhere...you have to know when a vehicle like this is built, gas mileage is low on the list of priorities. The window sticker says it's all, 14 mpg city, 20 mpg hwy. I don't know what's worse...people with SRT8s or looking into getting a SRT8 asking about gas mileage...or people with 6 cylinder Chargers wanting a tuner.
I actually work about 5 minutes from the private company that is coming out with the Tesla Roadster. This thing is almost totally electric (um how about NO gas!) and the power is almost unbeleivable. Incredible. Now this is what I'm talking about when I tell my wife that I am doing my part to save the planet! I am thinking about getting myself one of these (whenever the hell I can get my hands on one that is!) to compensate for my thirsty Charger.
"0 to 60 mph in under 4 seconds. Meanwhile, the battery stores enough energy for the vehicle to travel more about 245 miles (EPA city/highway) without recharging"
Two tons of weight? I think it will just sit there and NOT move at all! :grin:Interesting, lets see what you that engine can do with two tons on it.
Anyway, if you get a performance vehicle. You will become one with the pump :grin: because WOT is your best friend
