#2 of 35 Charger R/t mileage
Sep 14, 2005 (4:39 pm)
Took a trip to Atlanta ( monday night game) from Gainesville Fl in my R/t . First real test of highway mileage. I was cruising at 80 most of the way . I got just alittle over 25 mpg..Not too bad !!
#3 of 35 V6 MPG

My SXT on my first tank I got 21.5 that was half highway and half city.It should get better when you get more miles and everything gets broken in.My last car started getting better MPG around 2000miles.Soon as my air filter needs changing then I'll put in a K&N filter.

My last tankfull of gas I averaged 19.3.I have only 900 miles so it should improve.I just put in a K&N air filter and still on this last tank,but I see a differance in my miles so far that looks better.I will update my mileage on
my next fill up.

I own a Charger RT with the Road & Track Performance group. I only have 700 miles on the car but so far I've only been averaging 14-15 miles per gallon which is terrible. I've also been using 87 octane gas. How much would my gas mileage improve with the 89 octane gas?

Hello Charger fans:
I've been driving my R/T since July of 2005. I live in a snow area and the charger has handled everything well so far. It has 10,204 miles on it. I did install the K&N filter and get about 18.4 mpg most of the time. It has seen snow and gone by new Mustangs on hilly areas without a fishtail. I'veowned (2) Corvettes and this car by far would eat them alive. If you love the feel of being king of the road try one. I may upgrage to the SRT8 or at least think about.

On my last tankfull of gas with the K&N is got 18 mpg.I put
my stock filter on my last fill up and got 20 mpg,all city
driving,and driving normal on this tank full.Plus I lost
performance with the K&N.

What am I doing wrong? I can't get the mpg past 13-14. Most of it is city driving but it's not stop and go city driving. I have the RT and am using 87 octane gas. How much would my mileage improve if I switched to 89?

SRT8 BETWEEN 15.8 - 16.0 MOSTLY FREEWAY DRIVING WITH 2662MI. IT SEEMS TO GET BETTER WITH THE MORE MILES I PUT ON. ILL TRY IT WITH OUT THE K/N AIR AND SEE IF IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. ALSO HEARD THAT THERES A TRANNY FLASH THATS SUPPOSE TO HELP

How can anyone buying a 350hp (RT) or 425hp (srt8) say anything about bad gas milage. If you bought your car worrying about gas then you should have bought an economy car. Anyone who buys an SRT8 which carries a gas guzzler tax and even looks to see how many mpg they are getting should sell it immediately because you cant afford it. Yes my SRT8 is a gas guzzling freak ..yes i spend alot of time pumping premium into her ...and yes gas is going higher....BUT WHO CARES !!! Give me 425hp that i can drive daily and "pin you to the seat" acceleration and the smile on your face and the rush of adrenaline justifies it all.
