2013 Dodge Dart: Fuel Economy Update for March

April 2, 2013

2013 Dodge Dart

We added close to 2,000 miles to our 2013 Dodge Dart during March. The miles were added both from commuting around Los Angeles and from some long-distance highway driving around California. The result for the month of March was an average of 28 mpg.

While this is an improvement on our lifetime average of 26.9 mpg, it's still below the EPA's 31 mpg estimate for combined driving.

Worst Fill MPG: 21.6
Best Fill MPG: 33.1
Average Lifetime MPG: 26.9
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway Combined): 31
Best Range: 384 miles
Current Odometer: 5,435 miles

    I see a conspicuous absence of octane rating in this month's update - did you try using 89 or are you still sticking to 87 in protest of Dodge's lack of a sticker inside the fuel filler flap advising otherwise?
