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.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy Update for April

May 8, 2014

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

Over the last four weeks we've driven our long-term 2014 SLP Panther Camaro about 1,500 miles, most of it in and around the city of Los Angeles. All of that urban driving has done little to help the fuel economy average of this supercharged V8-powered muscle car.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy Update for Feb. and Mar.

April 4, 2014

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

Since January we've driven our supercharged Panther Camaro about 3,500 miles. The SLP continues to be pure joy and, of course, thirsty. After all, it is a 600-hp muscle car rolling on very large very sticky tires.

Still, it can average over 20 mpg on the highway if you keep your foot out of it and make the most of 6th gear. Drive it like you rented it, however, and the Panther burns a tankful faster than John Force's Mustang. Usually we average 10 mpg or less when we play.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy for January

February 4, 2014

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

We logged about 1,500 miles in our 2014 SLP Panther Camaro for January. The whole time we drove it conservatively, hardly ever exceeded 2,500 rpm and had Josh Groban on a perpetual playlist.

For the month, we averaged 35.6 mpg.

Wait, no, wrong car. Sorry. That's the Passat TDI. The SLP Panther Camaro? Need you even ask? Yes, somewhere a Shell executive is smiling.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy Update for December

January 6, 2014

2014 SLP Panther 600

Driving the 2014 SLP Panther Camaro is a laugh riot. It will break its rear tires loose at almost any speed in any gear, even with the traction control engaged. It puts smiles on the faces of every driver, passenger and nearby child with its rumbling exhaust and brutish good looks. And that happiness really is priceless, isn't it?

But for all who are curious to know what this cherished elation costs in dollars and cents, we keep track of fuel economy as well.

2014 SLP Panther Camaro

This is our first fuel economy update for our newest long-term car, the 2014 SLP Panther 600. After barely half a month in the fleet, our SLP-tuned Camaro is still in the break-in period, though we've already logged four tanks. Its lifetime average after 730 miles is 15.2 mpg.
