    Finally got my Hellcat challenger last week, flew to Florida picked it up then started my cross country trip via Washington DC then on to Washington state. I followed the break in to a t, changed the oil at 600 miles. After the break in miles I ran anywhere from 65 to 90mph depending on the area. Did lots of in town driving in several large cities. I just got home today and averaged 23.5mpg. I did not drive in with a super light foot either. I'm pretty blown away by the mileage, and the car, everything about it is spot on!

    My only dilemma is the color, I thought I could live with phantom black but am too picky about black looking dirty. I love the car but am going to find a billett silver one. I will post it in Hellcat purchasing. It is a phantom black A8, black Laguna,red belts, nav, and brass monkeys. Pm me if interested. Thanks

    Glad you made it home safely and had a fun time! Also, sorry to read that you are not happy with the color .. .that is why Dante is getting a paint job! :)

    Nice report, 23 mpg is awesome. I debated over phantom black and sublime for a while. In the end, I knew the black would drive me crazy keeping it like I like it (perfect). Sublime is very easy to keep and looks great with the black accents. I tinted my windows and wrapped my hood. Hope you find the color you want.
