I didn't buy a Viper because of its great fuel economy but I never that that I'd blow through 18 Gallons in a 120 Miles.

All of a sudden my corporate gas card is becoming a much better perk :thumb:

Gen I's have 23 gallon tanks

Gen II's have 19 gallon tanks

That might explain some of the difference Snakbit.

120 miles to 18 gallons is low, you have been spoolin up them turbo's haven't you? /images/graemlins/devil

90~130 miles per tank.

Never more than 140 all last year.

I strive to keep it right at 100 miles per tank. /images/graemlins/wink

I've got a basically stock 02 GTS, and I make short 5-10 mile trips with the car. I get between 100-140 miles to the "empty mark" which translates to about 14 gallons missing.

I was getting alot worse like 70-100 miles per tank, and I found the tires were down to 21 PSI all the way around. I upped it to 29 PSI and got the better milage out of that.

At the track, I get about 100 miles on a tank - less than a day.

Mixed driving, I can go about 250-300 miles on a tank.

Deano is reality.

On the highway with a stock Viper in 6th you'll get 22/gal easy.

I find that when I'm on a downhill grade with a tail wind and I take the car out of gear while behind a semi....

This shite is just so stupid! Here, I'll sum it all up:

You drive hard, you get lousy mileage. You drive easy, you get good mileage.

Any other questions, get on the hybrid board!
