2015 Dodge Viper GT: Fuel Economy Update for September - New Highs, New Lows
by Mark Takahashi, Automotive Editor on October 13, 2015
No surprise that our long-term 2015 Dodge Viper fuel economy average is adjusting to a lower figure after its initial cross-country trips. In September, it fell half-a-mile per gallon, but it was well worth it. We also scored a new high-mpg result, too.
The Viper spent some quality time circling Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca at the hands of Josh Jacquot. In two fills noted "track" on the fuel log, he achieved a 6.4 mpg and 8.4 mpg result. Oddly enough, Josh also managed to eke out a 27.2 mpg tank on the way up to Monterey, beating the previous 25.1 mpg high score. Impressive results on both sides of the spectrum.
Worst Fill MPG: 6.4
Best Fill MPG: 27.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 16.1
EPA MPG Rating: 15 Combined (12 City/21 Highway)
Best Range: 294.3 miles
Current Odometer: 12,179
