I would expect your mileage to increase as the engine breaks in. Please post again when you hit 9000km.

I agree. I can get 14 with my 5.7 Hemi Ram1500 if I keep my foot out of the tank.

These types of posts give me a lot of concern.

He may have meant litres. If it indeed is only getting 16 mpg, I'd take it back.

Hmmm...I don't think that is possible.

If my math is correct 1 liter = .26 gallons. Therefore 16MPL in gallons would equate to 16 divided by .26 = over 61MPG.

Did I get that wrong?

A mere 16mpg makes no sense tho.

Aye.

At 115 miles per hour I believe the EPA mileage estimates would probably not apply!

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big Mopar fan (all I drive are dodges) but the way dodge has advertised the Calibers gas mileage is a crock! Like I mentioned in an earlier post. my brother has one and he took to dodge because he is only getting 22-23 highway mpgs,( it has around 3000miles on it) Dodge did a "test" on it an said that it is getting nearly 40mpg. Wow this is better than what they have even advertised! Bull CRAP! I am avid dodge fan, but I am not so much a dodge dealer fan. It's all about $$$, who cares about anything else. Whatever. I really think that the Caliber is a really cool vehicle, but has been falsely advertised.
