2007 Dodge Charger SRT8: Fuel Economy Update for December - More of the Same
by Cameron Rogers, Associate Editor on January 7, 2016
Our 2007 Dodge Charger SRT8 didn't see much action in December. Editors used it mostly for short commutes and when I had it during the New Year's week, I stuck close to home. All the city driving contributed to the Charger's December average of 14.7 mpg over just 1,155 miles. Overall economy barely budged, falling slightly from 15.5 to 15.4 mpg.
It rarely happens in long-term cars with gobs of power on tap, but our overall fuel economy continues to beat the EPA's combined estimate of 15 mpg.
We've quoted 10.7 mpg as the lowest fill since the October update, but this was based on a fill-up after just 54 miles. The tank was filled prematurely, so I've excluded it from the "Worst Fill MPG" section below.
Worst Fill MPG: 11.7 mpg
Best Fill MPG: 22.2 mpg
Average Lifetime MPG: 15.4 mpg
EPA MPG Rating: 15 Combined (13 City/18 Highway)
Best Range: 317.4 miles
Current Odometer: 76,708 miles
