Mongoose9400 is an unknown quantity at this point
From my experience the gas light comes on around 3 gallons left. The EVIC shows a 3_.0 mile range left. After a few more miles the EVIC just shows low fuel around ~30 miles to empty. I pull off in the next 10-20 miles. Usually closer to 10 to be safe lol. I was watching those fillups. Tank is ~25 gallon and I'm putting 24 gallons in. Makes me wonder how much further I could of drove before bone dry. Logic says around another 10 miles. I never want to find out lol.

Re: FYI - One available in NJ at $8,409 discount!

I get ~15 mpg and I have a VERY heavy foot.... Over 300 miles per fill up. I get about the same with my WK 5.7.

I had a similar experience, drove about 15 miles on the low fuel warning and decided it was time to hit the fuel station. 24.1 gallons. Don't want to do that again

24.1 gallons thats impressive.

You guys seen that Seinfeld episode were Kramer test drives that car and wants to see how far he can drive before getting fuel? We should do that and start a Thread for pics with the most fuel added to the tank in one stop lol.

Best to beat is 24.1. Who's got the balls to get a 24.9?

Yea, that was a funny Seinfeld episode.

You run your fuel down too far too many times and you'll be needing a new fuel pump eventually.

No way I am shooting for that again. This car is way too thirsty to go too far once the Low Fuel displays on the EVIC

Re: FYI - One available in NJ at $8,409 discount!

From the Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge dealer on RT. 70 in Marlton (same as one in OP's link) - anyone nearby, its def a dealer worth swinging by!



And they have the silver one in the showroom still (2/29) for $8k under MSRP!

Also had this gem hiding along with many other SRT8s, a few Vipers, a Dodge RAM SRT10 and tons of other SRT/Performance vehicles:

LOL, what "buy it now" prices are you looking at. At $2000 below STICKER isn't even near invoice.

Oh I know pricing is still a good ways from invoice, but it is positive to see the dealers starting to get motivated in selling one. There is over 300 of them listed on cars.com

The pricing should be very favorable by mid summer.
