2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye: Fuel Economy Update for August
September 4, 2013
For the month of August we logged just 508 miles on our 2013 Dodge Dart SXT Rallye. Why so few miles? The Dart spent several days out of service with a broken door handle, which has since been repaired.
During the 508 miles we averaged 22.9 mpg on 87-octane fuel.
The Dart's poor fuel economy for the month brought the car's lifetime mpg average down to 27.4 from 27.6. This means we're averaging closer to the EPA's 27-mpg city rating, rather than its 31-mpg combined rating?
Worst Fill MPG: 16.8
Best Fill MPG: 35.6
Average Lifetime MPG: 27.4
EPA MPG Rating: 31 Combined (27 City / 37 Highway)
Best Range: 486.7 miles
Current Odometer: 13,213 miles
