I rented a 2007 Charger SXT and drove it round trip from Indianapolis to Minneapolis, and back. The distance between cities is approximately 600 miles. Driving between 65 and 75 mph, the car returned 28 miles per gallon. This car had the 3.5 V6 (250 hp) and the 5-speed auto-stick. Not bad for a big Dodge! My first car was a '67 Chrysler with a 270 hp V8. It got 12 MPG on a good day with a tailwind. Technology is a beautiful thing!

After 6000 miles on my Charger SXT I was able to obtain 19 mpg almost all city. This is a great improvement from 14.8 mpg the first few thousand miles. The warmer temps are helping too. This is good for a large and heavy RWD with 250HP.

I'm glad your mileage came up.I think the Dual exhaust also helped,it helped my mileage.

Still breaking in my car. It has about 2000 miles so far. SE model with 3.5L engine option. I'm getting 17 mpg in all city driving here in LA. On a long trip up to SF I got 27 on the way up doing normal driving in the 70-80 mph range. I tried going slow on the way back - averaging in the 60s I would say. As low as 55 at one point. I got 30 overall on that tank. (Measured manually.) (Loving the car btw

On my last tank of gas I got 20.3,on this tank,I got my highest so far which was 20.6.This is all city driving.The dual exhuast,plus running premium has alot to do with this.I'm very happy with my Charger so far after 2 years,its been a great car.I just turned 6k miles a couple of weeks ago.

On a trip to Tallahassee the other day using all interstate driving, we got 28.3 MPG. This was figured using the full tank to full tank method. Car is a 2007 Charger SXT 3.5V6 with spoiler.
#21 of 35 SE Rental, 2.7 liter V6

I have been using a Charger SE with the 2.7 liter V6 engine this week. I am getting 30 MPG on my commute, 50% highway and 50% stop and go, 40 miles each way.
Amazing for such a heavy car! The ride is very comfortable and there is more than enough power. You barely hear the engine at 70.

So far I'm averaging 13-15mpg in the city and a high of 23mpg on the highway. Given the performance of this car, I'm satisfied with that
