You car isn't knocking or down on power or losing mpgs. I know if I put anything but premium in my SS a bike it'll act funny

Nope the gxp is getting 21 mpg. Lots of highway. And now that the ss is tuned it uses premium but when it was stock I was getting almost 27 mpg. Again lots of highway.

If Hemi's are so good, why do people always get Chevy motors for their hotrods and such?
Because old hemi's are super rare and expensive and Chevy Small blocks are everywhere, relatively cheap to buy and mod to get plenty of HP.

Took my Challenger srt 392 6 speed (man) to vegas a couple months ago. According to the computer she got 24.8 going and 26.3 coming home. About 250 miles avg 80 mph each way fully loaded with 3 adults. Which makes me wonder how accurate the computer is.

Charger r/t has to have 89 octane or better according to the manual.

Well I own a 2012 charger rt and A 2010 camaro ss and in the city my charger gets worse mpg than the camaro but on the highyway my charger gets excellent mpg. We went to San antonio for new years in the charger and got 27mpg. The best in my ss was 22.5. I love both my cars and the hemi run s like crap on everything other than 93. I know I've owned three.

At 55 mph I average 29+ mpg.

No complaints here, but I didn't buy 2 Camaros for the mileage.
must have Fred Flintstone cut outs in the floor.

No, those two cars are too closely related. We are talking about two completely different cars in this thread..
