okay, so i just recently got laid off from my job with and i am taking my severence pay and my girlfriend and i are driving from austin tx to vegas this sunday...i am tryingto convince another buddy to go so i can justify taking my 09 srt challenger (auto), evencthough her hyundai coupe gets about 28 mpg....any advice on how to save gas in the chally, cheap thimgs to do in vegas, must stops on the way (we are detouring to four corners just because)...just kinda throwing this one out there
Keep it at 60-65 and set it on cruise..in Vegas get a buffet wrist band for about 6 buffets..you can buy one at ceasers, planet Hollywood or Paris...that's where I buy mine...go to the rio buffet and the Wynn!
Theres A lot of shopping, the outlets are awesome..there at the end of the strip...you can ask for directions
Walking the strip is fun!
we are staying at the desert rose and its pretty much a little condo with a full kitchen so we are going to cook most nights. i am going to try to cruise below speed limit but its going to be hard. 2700 miles plus round trip im actually getting pretty excited thinking about the trip and driving down the vegas strip in the srt.
DO IT!!!! and rest easy!

AZ Modern Mopar Muscle
Head out to Hoover Dam and walk across the Memorial Bridge, 840' above the river.
No, not unless you do the Dam tour where they take you down inside the Dam and show you how everything works, there is one parking lot that you have to pay for I think it's $8.00, but the one you park at to walk across the bridge is free.
Have a great & safe trip & enjoy.
For better gas mileage with the SRT, install one of these under the gas peddle.

GOD BLESS AMERICA
remember its not gambling when you know you are going to win! Vegas good times. If you like cars head to the Ferrari dealer in the Wynn or the Auto collection at Imperial Palace.
I dont have an SRT, but i recently drove from New Mexico to Avondale AZ this past weekend in my 2005 300C. I went to visit Plumfloored to get a full top end Cam,Heads, and Intake manifold. On my way there i got avg 20.1 MPG.. So after my install from the mall in TEMPE AZ TO My home my avg MPG was 26.1. I used cruise control set it at around 79, except throught the small towns we went through ofcourse. So i think the constant throttle in the same place (using cruise control) help a lot. So its your friend use it lol. Good Luck on your road trip. +1 on the Hoover Dam....
