Well done! I’m going back to MI in a couple days but doubt I can top your numbers. That 8 speed tranny is amazing.So, last weekend I traveled from the Baltimore area to Pittsburgh, Pa. Many mountains in between. It's a little over 4 hours drive each way. I was mostly on cruise control between 70-75 MPH. When I got back here, the MPG calculator on my dash said 32.4 MPG.
That's the reason those of us who are sane bought these cars. Fuel efficiency doesn't even blip my meter. It's the smiles per miles that case me to love my car.I should stay out of this conversation/ I really should.. I tried, . but I just can't. I tried, honest.
I have a 2011 SRT8 - when new (prior to any mods) ... I actually cared about fuel efficiency. I would run the car at 1500-1900 RPMs. Doing this I could get 23 MPG maybe 25.
Then, post mods (SuperCharger and lots of ooph), I get (average) 13 MPG, under normal driving (I mean - speed limit stuff). If I stick my foot in it I can actually (literally) watch the gas gauge move.
I'm not saying I did, but if I did run my car, wicked fast, on the highway under boost for an extended period (say, 1 minute), I had to look for a gas station... I could easily have emptied my tank in under 15 minutes.
So, I know all ya all care about fuel mileage, and let me tell ya I am grateful. But please don't use 93 Octane, keep that for me.
