Very curious to see what kind of gas milage everyone is getting. Post the model your driving and what your avg MPG is.
AUBURN HILLS, Michigan — Chrysler said its 2013 Dodge Dart Aero will get an EPA highway fuel-economy rating of "at least" 41 mpg.
The Dart Aero goes on sale in the third quarter. Chrysler won't release pricing until closer to the on-sale date.
The rest of the Dart family should begin reaching U.S. dealers shortly, with prices starting at $16,790, including shipping. The top-of-the-line 2013 Dodge Dart R/T, which will be available in the third quarter of 2012, starts at $23,290. The R/T model is the sportiest of the bunch — until the rumored Dart SRT4 arrives, most likely in 2013.
The base Dart SE is equipped with a 160-horsepower 2.0-liter inline-4 engine linked to a six-speed manual transmission. The Dart R/T is fitted with a 184-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine mated with a six-speed manual. Six-speed automatic and dual-clutch gearboxes also will be available.
The Dart Aero will get the Fiat-based 160-hp 1.4-liter MultiAir turbo four-cylinder with a six-speed manual. The standard Dart 1.4 combo with six-speed is rated by the EPA at 27/city and 39/highway.
Inside Line says: This should put the new Dodge compact right in the thick of the mileage wars, squaring off against the Chevrolet Cruze and the Ford Focus, among others.
I'm at 25.2, and it goes anywhere from 25-28. Just depends on how traffic is in the city... And as well as my type of driving.. HahaI'm at 26.6 average right now on my second tank of gas in a 1.4T. It's slowly going up though. I can keep the "current mpg" meter right around 40 on the highway for the most part.
If I were to take a road trip and run a tank out on the highway I bet it would go over 30 real quick.
With not many gallons through the tank it changes pretty fast right now. And I probably accelerate a little faster than the EPA guys :big smile:
I think it takes time for your "average" to change. After like a week of driving you should have a good idea of where you will be. IMO the Dart should be at 34 highway pretty easily.Mines at around 27. We live in the country and it's 7.5 miles to the closes town of 2500 people. I live in Mid Missouri alone the Missouri River and all the the roads are hilly. Lots of up and down type driving. The Kia Soul that I traded in on the Dart Rallye averaged 30 and the chevy cobalt before that was over 30 with an automatic in it. Maybe it'll get better after the engine gets broke in.
I was gonna ask if you drove with the premium. I believe that's what i'm gonna stick with. The benefits still seem to outway the cost. Let us know if the mpg rises more (fingers crossed)Nepo said:Drove just a quarter tank out on the highways yesterday and I'm up to 29.3. It changes so fast with only 400 miles on it. And I put premium in instead of mid grade. It feels like it runs better on "the good stuff", go figure that lol.
