    One year I was lucky enough to be renting one with only the delivery mileage on the clock, and it was the same colour as in the picture Mick.

    Actually the fuel consumption was very good Mike. I can`t remember exactly what mpg I achieved, but it can`t have been horrendous or I would have noticed, even bearing in mind the low cost of fuel "over there".
    It was fine for the two of us, although the boot [trunk] may be a tad small for a family of 4...2 of our cases were put on the rear seat to and fro the airport.

    The Dodge Charger will probably get you between 11 and 14 MPG in town, depending upon what engine you have. I have Durango with the Hemi engine and that is what I get. The car with the same engine does not do appreciably better.

    It came under the "4 door, full size catagory" Mike. It was no more expensive than the other cars in that catagory.
    I always ask for a Charger at the desk but on our last trip they didn`t have any available so they gave me a Chrysler 300 which was ok albeit a bit lacking in ooomph!

    I really can`t recall the mpg being as low as that!
    I only tanked it up on a couple of occasions and we did well over 2000 miles altogether.
