you will not get what they say you will get AND they dont tell you but for MAX fuel mileage you have to use premium fuel.

My car is supposed to get 29/39 and I get 27 overall.

I have a 1.4 turbo 6M and the mileage they are selling is total bull****, unless you drive like a grandma.

I don't think there are anything a lot better out there unless she gets a Prius or a TDI Jetta, which is a lot more expensive.
Most of the Darts I've seens display around 30-35 MPG on Average in the Cluster. I get about 28 MPG on my 06 Corolla, which has 50 less horse power and weights 500 pounds less.

If you think Dodge is a big liar when it comes to MPG, you must have not heard the News about Hyundai/Kia got nailed by EPA regarding their false advertising.

Canada must have a different way of rating their MPG, in US, Dart is advertised as 31/39mpg

So far in the 1.4L with a 6-SPD manual after about a week of driving (mostly city) I'm getting a 23mpg average, but then again, I'm accelerating like a bat-out-of-h3ll at red lights :-)

Default Wife gets about 25/26 MPG around town

We have a worst-case scenario drive around our house (lots of speed bumps and stop signs/stop lights), so that is a realistic minimum. On a mostly highway mileage trip last year, we got about 33 MPG.
The vehicle has the 1.4 turbo with the dual dry clutch auto transmission.

We ONLY use premium octane gas, but I have not been able to find a gas station around me that uses dedicated hoses for the different grades, so I assume there is some mixing going-on?

Look at your window sticker. It says 27 mpg overall. You are getting what you should .

Manual says regular is acceptable but premium is recommended . So they did tell you . Just sayin .

You'll never get what they advertise. They may say you can get 59 mpg but that's in warm weather on flat ground with 93 octance fuel, a manual tranny, and Betty White driving.
But even though you aren't getting what's advertised, 40 mpg still ain't bad.
My truck is advertised at 14/19 mpg and I only average 14.1 or so.
