    Default If Anyone Cares About Viper MPG Results

    Thought some of you might be interested in our last NY Rally

    Here are the results with the corrected mileage which is 72 miles covered. (This correction was an average since the cars ranged from 68 to 75 miles). All the drivers followed the same route from start to our final destination. The first annual Viper Fuel Rally was truly a hit and everyone had an awesome time driving (racing/slow boating) and checking their results.

    Jimmy Audet 94 R/T10 fuel consumption: 3.74 Gal. MPG 19.76

    Mike Talb 05 SRT fuel consumption: 4.96 Gal. MPG 14.56

    I'm betting that the guys with the worst gas mileage had the most fun ! At least, for me, the fun factor is inversely proporytional to the mpg numbers.

    I betcha if there was another column added for "time" the numbers would make even more since, but that might be too incriminating.....

    Very nice. Reminds me of that test we did two years back. 20 MPG is not bad at all.

    You need to know that drivers had a choice - to travel the route and get the best fuel economy, or travel the same route and get the lowest. I think the smiley and the frowney tell you who the two winners were.

    That is a fun idea. It consists of a gathering, everyone gets to do their own thing, yet you still do it with everyone else, and there is a lot to chat about when you're done. And it can be done anywhere. Sorry I missed it, but I'm getting my 100 MPG carburetor ready.

    Just to help decifer: all the vipers travelled together, some obviously going faster than others at times but those would drop back and cruise with the group. People would race each other screwing around here and there but for the most part we all drove together. A few of the drivers were strictly going for economy, a few of the drivers were going for burning tons of fuel, and a few in the middle of the pack like me that avg. 15 MPG cruised easy and were hard on the gas a few times. We all traveled the same route and covered the same 72 mile difference. The chart result shows how many galllons of fuel each car consumed over the same distance and this allowed me to calculate each cars Miles Per Gallon. Hope this helps. And yes Tom's right there were two winners for the best and worst MPG.

    Plum I wish you were there, it would have been very interesting to see what the MPG would have been on the beast.

    That's funny, I'm making one too and on paper, I come up with 108 mpg.

    I'm also sorry I missed this event! Charlie please make this the "first annual"!

    I think I get the most fun/mile out of my car, my fuel gauge doesnít work, and my speedometer, doesnít register the correct speed or mileage, because of my 373 gears. (-18% from the actual reading?) This way, I do not have to worry about how many MPG I get. I just top it up any time before I get 300km on a speedo. And thatís all.

    Just got back from a 353 mile road trip and got 24.18 mpg. It was mostly interstate at speeds averaging low 70's.
