    Re: How much gas do you use?

    3 times a week. Anyway, who is driving a V cares about fill ups? I'm all about the "smiles per gallon".
    My fast car is an Impala that gets 10 mpg (on a good day). We are so lucky to be driving a 4 door, 4000 lb car, that gets 12 to 18 mpg!
    People who have to care about mpg are in the wrong car. Enjoy your Prius POS....

    Mine too. And while that's with a lot of hills, that's without driving it too hard. If I drove more aggressively I fear I'd be in the single digits. Fuel economy is definitely the car's Achilles' heel.

    Been averaging around $250-$300 per month in fuel costs. But I retire next month, so I expect that will double.

    Happy retirement! And what a toy to have with free time!

    Re: How much gas do you use?

    Just got mine a little over a month ago...I alternate weeks with the V and my old 08 Impalas SS with 165k miles on it. I drive @ 125-250 miles a day. I've driven 2k miles already with the V with usually a daily or every other day in a gas station.... Doesn't phase me. I'm loving the car and grin ear to ear driving it. This week V . Next week Impala . It gives me something to look forward to. In June my son gets his license and gets the SS. That's when I'll just drive the V for the next 18 mos and then it goes up for sale.
    I don't know anyone that would have this car for its fuel economy... Wish the tank was bigger though!

    Because of the small tank, the trips to the gas station are a bit deceptive of the gas mileage. I have had mine for two weeks, so that gave me a chance to see my daily commute and normal errands. On average it looks like about 30 miles a day, 12-15mpg. Loving every minute of it.

    Not that much better than the 3.6 coupe that I moved out of...

    Not as much as I like. Work pays for my monthly light rail pass, so I take that to work most days. The drive to the station from my house is too short to use much gas.

    Re: How much gas do you use?

    After taking my V on road course weekends, the normal fill ups don't really bother me I usually fill every 2-3 days on a 60 mile highway roundtrip commute. In track days I just about empty the tank on a 25 minute session. I get about 3.5 - 4mpg on road course days

    My other 6.2L powered vehicle gets me about 2.5 MPG. The CTS-V is an economy vehicle in comparison.




    (the other 6.2L powered vehicle is a boat, of course).

    I had a 07 Jeep SRT8. What do you like about the "V" more then the SRT8?

    Re: How much gas do you use?

    I had a 09 Challenger SRT 8 which I ordered with the 6 spd manual. I loved the old school look of the Challenger, the interior space (very roomy) and loved that 6.1 engine but I always wanted a V since 2005, so after enjoying the Challenger which was a great car I finally got my 2011 V sedan with auto transmission. I don't know which got better gas mileage because the SRT 8 was just as thirsty as the V. The SRT Jeep was one of my favorites of the SRT line up, although the newer ones have a bigger engine and more toys I liked the look of the older style.

    I had a '10 Challenger SRT8 auto and it got about the same mpg as my V.
    I really love the Challengers retro looks and comfortable interior. Straight line performance and braking were pretty good but handling was only so so.
    Even with 425hp it still felt underpowered and heavy.
    I was driving it the day my son and I test drove a V coupe at a Barrett Jackson auction and the rest is history.
    Nothing against the Challenger, the V is just much better in every way (except mpg).
    I'm still a big MOPAR fan of just about anything up through 1972.
