    I think the average was 15 last I looked, worse than you will get as you aren't in traffic as much. I'll look at the latest reading in a few days and post it, kind of laid up with a jaw infection after a failed root canal and molar extraction, don't feel like going to check right now. Gas mileage is pretty much how heavy your foot is and how heavy the vehicle is IMO, so get the funnest car is what I say

    Did I mention this? lol

    Played with the build tool and man that gas guzzler tax on the Hellcat is crazy. Parking a boat like that in Chicago must be a great too.

    The yellow stuff is for during shipping, to protect the spoiler, and to make the driver aware of it.

    Gas guzzler is only on the manual transmission cars. Boat? It's normal sized! Besides, you need to garage something like that...those Chicago Liberals will lift anything left in the street, even something as tacky as Crown Vic hub caps. A Challenger would promptly disappear in an act of Liberal Privilege!

    Damn, that's badass. I think bronze wheels would look good with that green too.

    Have you gotten into a charger ? I have, its pretty spacious getting in and out, but I've never got into a challenger with sci. They about the same space ? Usually coupes have wider doors than 4 doors.

    How does one test drive when hand controls are needed? I bought my minivan without a test drive because it's a friggin minivan, but a real car I'd really prefer to test drive first.
    LOL how Andy has to bring politics into a car thread.

    Yeah, it is quite an interesting color. Cant wait to see one in person, seems like that color just came out.

    Haven't gotten into a Charger, but did see that the door on those seems to open quite wide. No door pillar in the way with a Challenger, makes entry much easier, and wheelchair assembly/disassembly a ton easier than with a 4 door. Speaking of Chargers, I did or still do want to get a old cop Charger for a winter beater, maybe. Only thing is that they do not have posi rear ends, so not so good for snow. Then there is the cost, not like a dime a dozen Crown Vic. And questionable durability compared to the Crown Vic. But it would be interesting having a winter car with some balls, lol

    I have a set of temporary controls I got used off someone. That and get some 3M double sided foam tape for the gas pedal (temps don't fit well at all with plastic electronic gas pedals). Takes a few minutes to slap on.

    Politics leaking out into car thread...but of course! lol
