I mean I can see a little bit of different rpm but I'm still getting the same amount of klm's ? ,I should mention both trips I was using the ACC so I barley touched the brakes or accelerator pedal ? Anyway just my personal thoughts on it :-)

ECO mode is always on, the button just engages it sooner. Are you sure that the numbers you posted are mpg and not l/100km? 12.3 and 11.9 l/100km work out to around 20-24 mpg. I know that I routinely get 12.5 l/100km. How many km do you get on a tank of gas?

Dam it your right mate I posted wrong sorry about that ,yea I meant I/100km not mpg and I'm getting 750klm a tank full to empty. Thanks kbench55 for picking that up and I didn't no that ECO was always on , so do you think this ECO thing actually works for these cars or it's just because they have the 8 speed box in them ?..

You are doing very well for mileage. The most I have ever gotten on a tank was 700 km.

I think the 8 speed helps for sure compared to the 2012 model. I did a test on my 2012 on a long road trip. I used the paddle shifters and put it into 5th gear(takes it out of eco) and drove for 250 km. I then did the same trip with eco on and I ended up getting 2 mpg better with eco mode on.

My 2014 is consistently 4 mpg better than my 2012 was on any road trip and I attribute that to the 8 speed. I usually set my cruise at 133-135 km/h and on my 2012 the RPM's were 2800-3100 and on the 2014 I am around 2200-2600. I think that is a big difference.

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

My bad again kbench55 I forgot to say my speed most of the time the speed I am traveling is 105klm and our top speed law is 110klm in certain parts of the road which really does suck here in QLD Australia and your doing those speeds of 133klm your getting dam good mileage as well mate ..

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

I loved the feel of the Laguna leather but not the color on a black SRT. I really like these! This should also mean that the black SRT badges and ducts should be available to order soon! Fingers crossed!

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

Can't tell if I don't like the red. I'm pretty sure I woulda preferred all black or maybe an all blood red with a black exterior.

Looks like the red vapor packages are hitting the lots. Can anyone find that p/n for the rear srt badge?

Re: 2015 WK2 SRT Red Vapor special edition

That black srt emblem is a must, the last piece of non black is the silver SRT, might as well make it 100%
