I was just interested in knowing what the real-world fuel efficiency numbers for the SRT-4 were? I would assume that they would be no worse than a PT Cruiser GT because of the reduced weight, but then again, there might be some really agressive ECU program... just wondering.

If you stay off the boost you can get better. From Miami, FL to Dayton, OH (~1250 miles) I got 24-26 mpg. I can imagine running boost every chance you get will net you the 15mpg listed above. SRT-4 Requires premium so I paid on average of $1.83/gal on the way back.

OK, I'm a mathematical retard!! After I saw Sam's post I started to think. He got 300 a tank and 24 MPG..... HMMM, I got approx 325 a tank and I got 15.3? I did the math again and 325/12.5 is 26 MPG!! SORRY FOR THE STIR-UP!! :D

I bet if you tried, you could make it 15.3 mpg.... On the track, my SOHC ACR gets between 8 and 10 mpg....

in my GT if i stay off boost i get any where from 17 being on it, all the way to 31mpg toodling around on the highway at 65-67 staying off boost the whole time. Very hard to do, but very easy as i commute 160 miles a day.. you learn to conserve gas. :p Sure it's a GT, but a very similar drivetrain setup and a bit heavier to boot.

Are you having the same fueling issue I am, with it running at 10:1 A/F?
Mine is doing that, and it's actually blackening the tailpipe. My thought is though, maybe chrysler has the ecu set to run that rich for a bit of extra protection from the factory. I've seen *numerous* other cars run pig rich from the factory, but most are high 10:1 to 11.5:1. *shrug*
I'll have to see if i can get a new MAP sensor in there, and if that fixes it, if not i have an AFC-II coming so that'll allow me to take care of that and fatten it up a bit from 3200-3800rpm...
