2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy Update for May

June 9, 2014

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

This is embarrassing, but I hold the record for the best mpg in our long-term SLP Panther Camaro. Back in February I drove it 141.1 miles, very slowly it must have been, on just 5.782 gallons of 91-octane gasoline. That's 24.4 mpg.

Travis Langness is the gas guzzler of our bunch. Back in January, Travis The Leadfoot  squeezed just 10.3 mpg out of the Panther's supercharged 6.2-liter V8, driving it 111.9 miles on 10.871 gallons of 91.

During the month of May we drove the Panther about 2,000 miles, with its fuel economy ranging from 19.4 mpg (me again) to 10.4 mpg (Travis again).

This has increased the car's lifetime average from 14.7 mpg up to 14.8.

Sadly, our six-month test of the supercharged Panther has essentially come to a close. Personally, I'm going to miss it. It's a favorite of mine. We've had few cars in our long-term fleet that have been this entertaining.

Look for a complete wrap up of our life with the car soon.
