I always make the dealer Take off their logo before i take delivery of the car. That way if they mess up the paint it is on them

Good point but we will live with it for now. How are you liking the red interior? We looked at grey car with that interior, loved how it looked, just didn't love the grey or the door dings on the 6000 km demo. By the way we passed 5000 km this weekend. Took it out last night, way more fun than my 70 Olds, I need the 2300 stall and better 2004R first gear back in to compete in the fun department, love the 3.6/8spd combo.

I really like the red interior. no problem keeping it clean and reminds me of the 70's Mopar seats

We really liked it too. We would have been sold on the grey car except the scratches in the clear coat and a door ding through the paint. My wife wanted another white one, if it would have been red inside, that would have been a bonus. These cars are definitely a tribute to late 60's, early 70's Mopars, just better, thanks to 45 years of development.

Polished it up to help the bugs from sticking this week. We will be driving and towing everywhere to go fishing. The new air filter and cabin filter will be here this afternoon. I also ordered these, our insurance rebate just covered 4 of them.

Apparently my first quick clean up under hood was subpar according to the Boss, a quick spray down with Turtle Wax Ice detailer.

Here is the last of my Turtle Wax Ice liquid applied, too bad it is no longer sold in Canada. I use Ice paste on all the lower plastic, even tires.

Doing an oil change today, again full synthetic Mobil 5W20 this time, CT had a great deal I could not pass up, less than $5 a Liter. Right at 40%, lowest we have let it go was 38%, I believe. Less than 10,000 km and a lot of towing. Usually that equals 10 to 11,000 Km. We have been averaging around 20 mpg Imperial towing our boat at 110 km an hour. If we do the speed limit around 25 mpg. Mixed driving, averaging 30 mpg and mid 30's pure highway. I also really like the Turtle Wax Ice, great on any car, modern cars with plastic trim, even better. Heck you can put it on tires👍.

I have been putting on 245 km on multiple trips on Regular 87 10% ethanol gas, I was averaging low to mid 34 mpg. I added 3/4 tank of 91 non ethanol Premium gas and got these numbers.

It is a good 1/2 to nearly 1 mpg over Regular, same conditions. I am testing one more tank of Premium, see if I gain anymore. Another trip on Premium.

So that would be about 29 mpg US and 8L/100Km. I do it the same way as you which means we both are way over the hill north of the 49th, LoL. I expect the majority of readers never think in Imperial gallons.

Pretty impressive for a 4100 pound car. I think 30 US mpg would be possible with ideal conditions.

Even more impressive when you compare the Challenger of 50 years ago. Back then the car was a thousand pounds lighter with a similar sized 6 cylinder engine, took twice as long to get to 60 mph, got half the gas milage and was difficult to control in slippery conditions although considering inflation, cost ⅔ as much. Paying the 50% premium still seems like a bargain though :D.

I agree, these GT loaded are just around the 50K mark. Compare them to a similarly loaded 4x4 truck and they are the Steal of the Century.

Well, the best mileage so far on 10% ethanol 87.

So I have put over 10,000 km in the last few weeks. I have drove in wind, sun and pouring rain and even harrassed a Camaro doing 190+ km/hr. The car has been flawless. My mileage has gone down in part to me pushing it harder and the air filter getting plugged with bugs, seriously. I actually bought a second one and blow them out and flip flop them. Get car, the auto dimming headlights, adaptive cruise and rain sensing wipers are a life saver.
