    So everyone knows about the VW emissions issue, but now Mercedes, BMW are also included in lying about fuel efficiency.

    Some Mercedes, BMW and Peugeot models consuming around 50% more fuel than official results, new study reveals

    So, should we start expecting to find out the hellcat is also doing that by detecting emission tests reducing it's footprint to be allowed into the market? It's already pretty crazy this car made it through but maybe they cheated?

    Not sure if they need to cheat for fuel efficiency ratings... that's what the gas guzzler tax covers.

    I could not care less about the Feds and their liberal EPA agenda. They can go F**k themselves. I got my car and they can come take it when they come to take my guns. :mad:

    Happy Birthday!
    I'll find out in two years how our local smog police feel about her. She passed the visual when entering our lovely state, but never did get the sniff test.
    It has gotten much worse to try to get around the regs in the past few years. We even have temporary checkpoints on the side of the road stopping and inspecting vehicles passing by!
    I'll be enjoying my hybrid all the while though!

    Don't even get me started about the extra tax we paid. For what?? No I refuse to begin typing about that, it will turn bad.

    Anyway onto the thread, since all of us have basically reported the car has more power than published and gets everyday gas mileage at least of what they claim and many times better, we should be in good shape.

    I'm with P, mine is in my garage and I own it, and nobody is going to reprogram anything or change anything, unless me and my friends agree it makes it quicker and faster. By the way Happy Birthday, P. You should rant a little more!

    Not sure what kind of fuel economy you are getting, but this is better than gas guzzler standards... Kept it in the 27's for 200 miles.
