2015 Dodge Viper: Fuel Economy Update for March — Still Double Digits
by Kurt Niebuhr, Photo Editor on April 13, 2016
When we weren't scything through traffic in our 2015 Dodge Viper, ah who are we kidding. All we do is scythe through traffic.
March saw us put another 1000 or so miles on the clock, discover that indeed exhaust pipes get dirty, admit to a too early damnation of a magnificent and visceral beast, and discovery of the joys of erranding around Los Angeles in our blue meanie. Did I mention we scythed through traffic? 'Cause we did that, too.
There's a cadre of Viper drivers at this point (myself included), and I believe we've progressed beyond mindlessly taching the Viper out to make progress. As such, we're started to use incrementally less fuel than we did in early months — we actually hit the EPA's city number at 12.01 MPG.
Double digits? What's wrong with us?
Worst Fill MPG: 6.2
Best Fill MPG: 27.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 14.5
EPA MPG Rating: 15 Combined (12 City / 21 Highway)
Best Range: 294.3 miles
Current Odometer: 18,642 miles
