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.
