2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye Long-Term Road Test


2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: 500-Mile Range

November 21, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye

The Las Vegas Strip is 280 miles from the Edmunds.com offices. I probably could've squeezed an additional 60 miles of range out of our long-term 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye by hypermiling on my road trip to Vegas. And I might've made it back from SEMA without stopping to gas up, but in the end, I still drove the Dart 506 miles on just one tank of gas.

Our best recorded mileage in the Dart is 36.6 mpg, and with a 15.8-gallon fuel tank, that puts the theoretical maximum range at 578 miles.

After 506.2 miles on the highway, the Dart consumed 15.067 gallons of fuel. With a little less than one gallon of fuel left, it had achieved approximately 33.6 mpg across the desert (which is 6 mpg better than our lifetime average for the car if you're wondering). I would walk 500 miles, but with the Dodge Dart, there's no need. I can just drive there.

A Letter to @nukedetroit - Dear nukedetroit, Don't you ever get tired of bashing the Dodge Dart posts? You sound similar to zr1man and his repetitive posts. Maybe you need some therapy. Who has bullied you to the point that you must continually berate a car company? Maybe you "digging deep for positive remarks about this POS" is a reflection of how you feel about your self. I have an understanding about expressing opinions, but enough is enough. We get your feelings about this car. Now please move along and take your repetitive negativity elsewhere. Thank you. Sincerely, Everyone who is tired of reading your BS posts and myself.

Keep digging deep for positive things to say about this POS, Edmunds. 36.6 mpg on a single tank is thoroughly unimpressive in this class, just like every single other aspect of this ridiculous failure of an automobile.

Sorry "nuk," it's still a free country for now, and I'll merrily batter, berate and belittle this POS as much as I please. I couldn't care less about your dimwitted views.
