2014 SLP Panther Camaro: Fuel Economy Update for Feb. and Mar.
April 4, 2014
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.
So far, after more than 7,000 miles of all kinds of driving, we've averaged exactly 15 mpg in the black Chevy.
Worst Fill MPG: 10.3 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 24.4 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.0 mpg
Best Range: 370.6 miles
Current Odometer: 7,117 miles
