    Well for some gas mileage for a Hellcat may be a dirty word. My Hellcat is my daily driver rain or shine and I was surprised to see an eco button on it.

    Well I can say hwy cruising at 100 KM/H or 60 Mp/H I'm averaging 9 L/100 or 26 MPG which is awesome for the kind of power this car lays down.

    Yes when I do floor it I may only get 8 MPG but hey you need to have fun some of the time!

    My combined mileage city/Hwy I'm averaging 13.2 L/100 or 17.8 MPG

    For those of you that don't want to admit it, its still nice to have the best of both worlds. A world class muscle car and pretty decent gas mileage for a long trek!

    Excellent--I was curious what the 'real world' feedback on mileage would be. As long as you don't have a Lead foot, combined 17.8mpg and 707hp from a 4400lb+ vehicle = some world class engineering.

    You're going GREEN on us CD NHellcat! Al Gore eat your heart out LOL

    I have a 2010 Tacoma 4x4 DoubleCab and I average about 17-18 but it's not nearly as fun to drive. Granted, it's an entirely different vehicle with a different purpose, but 700+ HP getting that kind of mileage is just fantastic IMO.

    CDNHellcat what conversion are you using from liters to gallons? 3.8 or 4.55?

    When I get mine, I'll be using 3.78L/US gallon. I never work with the other gallon.

    Hmmmmmm...eco button. I thought they were teasing us. I have not used it and it is my daily driver. I average around 17mpg right now. May try the eco button this week to see if I can raise that a little but I like gear heading it a bit! LOL!!!!

    Same here in the desert of the Southwest. Average 17.4 mpg but, why are we having a conversation about MPG for the most powerful production muscle car ever.:D

    If this car can produce over 707 h.p with a red fob & get 26 miles to the U.S. gallon by hitting the green button. I for one am impressed! Won't be my daily driver, but I do plan a couple of trips when & if it shows. It will be nice to plan the trips around landmarks & not gas stations...

    I just got back from an 800 mile round trip highway cruise over the weekend, used eco -mode and had a 22.2 mpg avg.

    I did not think it was that doggy at all at 70 - 80mph with a few passes thrown in. It can get better mileage than any of my other vehicles... just freaking awesome I think!:)

    Mixed city and highway I average anywhere from 16-20 mpg depending on how much I get on it (current take is averaging 19.5). If I'm all highway, cruising at 70, I can get anywhere from 22-28 depending on how much I stop cruising. :D Around town only in the Charger (caren's commute) it's more like 10-12 with lots of stop and go.

    Both Hellcats only have K&N filter installed.

    Tire pressure is also a factor and I'm currently at 37 psi. Anyway I'm pleased with the results decent gas mileage for long trips cruising and performance when you want it.
