    This past week I was able to do a long trip test of my recently repaired hellcat. I put 1000 miles on my car with no problems. I was traveling with my wife and her family following me so I had to keep my speed at around 68mph. I averaged 25mpg over the entire trip but one 325 mile section I did reach 26.4mpg. To say I was happy is an understatement. There was one 10 mile section that I was running with a C7 vette and stayed together pretty well. This trip was from MA to NJ so there was a lot of traffic.

    Was this an auto or manual transmission?

    My hellcat is an A8 transmission. My original problem was a P0308 misfire code that migrated to a coolant leak in supercharger and a starter and transmission valve body due to no crank fault. You can read about in my posts with a quick search I had to get the SRT folks involved to get it fixed. Ken H
