2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10: Road Trip Part III: By the Numbers

June 17, 2010

Viper Trip III.jpg

With parts One and Two of my 1,100 mile road trip in our Long Term 2009 Dodge Viper SRT-10, today I bust out the abacus for Part III: By the Numbers.

After the jump you'll find total distance traveled; best, worst and average fuel economy as well as gallons used; time travelend; the fantastic conclusion to the 'how far did the Viper go on one tank of fuel' cliffhanger;and, just to keep it interesting, some more pictures of a very orange Dodge Viper.

The EPA rates the 2009 Dodge Viper at 13 mpg city, 22 highway and 16 combined.

Over the course of 1,168miles (8,807 - 9,975 on the odo) I averaged 18.2 mpg.

Best MPG: 20.2 (twice)

Worst MPG: 14.7

Best range: 253 miles. (The car then took 14.625 gallons meaning I had nearly 1.4 gallons left in reserve. I'm as disappointed as you are.)

Gallons of fuel used: 64.2
