    I bought my SRT 10 RAM 6 speed new when gas was about 3.00 per gallon. Gas then went to 3.50 then to 4.00 and up to 4.75 at is high. Every time I had a conversation about my vehicle people asked me what kind of gas mileage do you get………my reply every time was….. if you got to ask then you won’t enjoy the vehicle…..
    My guess is with the Hellcats you also get asked what kind of gas mileage do you get….my reply to that will be……ITS GOT 700 + HORSE POWER I don’t care what mileage I get.

    I have a 69 Charger with a 440 auto 3:73 gears that gets 8 miles to the gallon IDLING LMAO if you put your foot in it too much you can watch the gauge empty LOL
    Less than a 200 mile range per tank, the Hellcat will be a Joy in comparison ;)

    Yep, I have already said that!! I'm like, REALLY? It has 700+ HP and you are curious about gas mileage? I get 15 mpg in my Charger (when I am not really hitting it hard) because I drive like an animal, I am gonna assume it will be less with the Hellcat...;)

    LMAO!! I used to say my 69 Camaro got 2 gallons to the mile:D!!! Not quite that bad, but it certainly was not good. When I was really on it, I could see the gas gauge slowly drop...In comparison the Hellcat will get EXCELLENT gas mileage!!;)

    I had a 2004 SRT 10 ram 6 speed also. When I would beat on it I would get 4.3. I thought that was awesome. Thank all the prius's and leafs for saving all that gas for us.

    My T-Bucket is cammed, and I drive it hard every time I start it, but it's super light so I get around 10mpg or so, but the fuel cell is small so it's not got much range between fillups, nor is it a comfortable vehicle for longer drives... Very similar economy in my 1972 Stingray. --That's why I consider the Hellcat to be downright 'practical'!!!

    When you think about it, our horsepower to fuel ratio is pretty kick a$$ and dominates over the Prius and Leaf!! LMAO!!!:D:D:D:D:D

    When people ask me the predictable stupid question "What's your gas mileage" when they see the Hellcat, I will act as if I misheard them and reply "It gets the MOST smiles per gallon!" and leave them baffled and coughing in the tire smoke!!!

    Got 6.5 MPG in the 70 and that was with 110 race gas cause the compression was so high.

    Big problem was the 13 gallon tank on the Cuda
