Guys,

can someone tell me what they get when they drive a PB Challenger around city driving, no highway long trips etc just sitting
in traffic and dropping of kids at school etc, doing the grocery shopping etc Think you get my drift, just trying to see
if we are using way too much or if its normal for stop start short trips around the city in traffic. 14L/100km is our average
currently with no HIGHWAY driving.

Hi Pavloh I have been getting 12.4 around town consistently over multiple fills. I have been using the manual readout of the average fuel economy calculator in the car and also a full tank to full tank / distance calculation of my own. By the way the readout is proving to be within 0.1 litres/100kms of my own calculations. I have checked the speedo accuracy with 2 GPS systems and found it to be optimistic by 2.5 KM/hour on factory tires.
Mine is an LS auto and one thing I have noticed is that light or heavy on the pedal does not dramaticlly change the economy.

Mine is a manual, but i am generally around the 9-9.5/100 (by calculation) around town and i don't drive like a nanna either, in fact it seems the harder i push it the better it gets, i generally get about 670km's before the light comes on and it takes about 60L to refill.

Cheers,
Dan.

Yeah I've got the manual as well and getting similar figures (~ 9L/100km). Interestingly, my last tank, which involved some long distance driving, gave me 810 km and it took 60 L to fill the tank. I was pleased with those figures!

Mine is very similar to Andy approx 9, and can get lower around town then increases on highway, but all up great range.

Those sought of numbers make the V6 in the paj look frugal.

I've got an auto LS and have been getting 12.3 to 12.7 over the last three weeks (fill to fill). That's all peak hour city driving, around 45km/day. The best so far was 11.5 for a week which included a short 160km highway run with ARB roof rack basket on. Vehicle has been pretty much empty with just me in it the whole time.

They really need to do something about the auto with its power and fuel consumption. I was keen for a challenger but would not consider until both have been addressed. I get 10.5 out of the paj in all city driving mostly peak.
