Get an GO-PRO Camera and record the sound , then load that to your MP3/IPOD , play as many times you want , where you want and when you want it .

you will save lots of gas .

Don't know about mileage, but you can get more bags of groceries into the back seat of a Charger.

I actually get better mileage in my '11 SS than my wife does in her '10 R/T Charger (and it shuts down 4 cyl's). I am not exactly easy on the throttle and I am averaging right about 21 MPG while she drives in a much easier manner and is only getting 19-20. Both of us drive a good mix of HWY and in town driving, so there really isn't a difference in "types" of miles.

When I was thinking about getting a new car, it was a toss up between the Camaro and Charger. I really liked the features of the Charger, especially the interior(in my opinion, it's better than the Camaro, honestly). Plus it's a four door, which would have maybe saved me some cash on insurance.

But my brother(works at a Chevy dealership), asked his manager if he could bring home a Camaro. I came home from work one day and there was a nice looking Silver Camaro in the driveway, and I took it for a drive, and that was that.

But for awhile there I was really leaning towards the Charger. I would have traded my 2003 Ford Ranger in and probably would have gotten the AWD V8 Charger, with leather and whatnot. But I kept my truck and bought a V6 Camaro instead.

I didn't even once consider that other car from Ford.... lol.

One more thing, the Charger is a 4-door granny car. It doesn't matter what size the engine is in it.

If Hemi's are so good, why do people always get Chevy motors for their hotrods and such?

In my '12 2LS, I average 29 mpg at 75 mph. The engine turns only 1750 rpm's at that speed.

At 65 mph, I average 32+ mpg.

At 55 mph, I average 35+ mpg.

My '11 2SS, at 75 mph I average 23+ mpg.

At 65 mph, I average 26+ mpg.

At 55 mph I average 29+ mpg.

No complaints here, but I didn't buy 2 Camaros for the mileage.

My Challenger SRT8 use to get about 15mpg. If you sat at idle with the motor running you could almost watch the gas needle move. My 2011 Corvette use to get 20.3 and I couldn't notice any difference at idle. My 2013 Camaro SS gets 18.3 and no difference at idle. Of all the cars I've had in the past 18 years, the Challenger had the worst gas mileage. Surprisingly, the vette had the best.

Keep in mind the Charger takes regular gas. R/T included. Camaro SS does not.

It says premium recommended for the SS which in everyone's mind should say it's a must.

Well before I got mine worked on and tuned I ran reg for a lot of miles. Car has 55k on it and all but about 6 ran on reg in south Texas. Just saying. I also own a gxp with an ls3 and it has almost 60k miles on regular. Never had a lick of probs with either.
