Hello everyone! I just bought an SRT-4 (05 brand-new, 09.27.04) last Monday, and from what I'm experiencing, the car is very thirsty. So far within this week (it will be 1 week old tomorrow), I've visited gasoline station 3 times already. And each trip was to fill up full tank (I fill up on 1/4 gas tank). It's a daily driver car and usually driven on local roads. How often do you guys visit the gasoline station within a 7 day week?

I think mpg is a better estimate of thirst. I almost always get 25-28 mpg. Most of my driving is 65-75 mph. I get on it really good a couple of times a day and I coast a lot to make up for it. Does anybody else coast alot to increase mpg?

For those who get 24+ mpg, how many miles do you have on the car? What was your gas mileage like pre-3000 mi? At what mileage did you start getting 24+ mpg?

I'm at about 2500 mi total and the absolute best I've seen is 19 mpg with about 90% highway. My job requires about 5-10 mi/day driving through city streets, but other than that i'm higway cruising. I like 80 mph because it's a nice round number.

i've got about 2200 miles on mine right now and last fillup was 10 gallons which got me 239 miles so about 23mpg on shitty AZ 91 octane (2.37/gal @ mobil) I fill up about every 4 days because I drive 25 miles one way to work. I'm not stingy with the gas either. I boost around all the time and somehow still get good numbers. My friend with an 03 gets 17 mpg. 19 if he babies it. I'm getting 23. strange. My worst, probably 14 mpg when I went racing all night with some friends. My best.... probably close to 25 all highway.
