Dodge Dart automatic gas mileage

Dodge Dart gas mileage with the automatic transmissions has been released to Canadian dealers. Gas mileage in Canada is calculated differently, with imperial gallons and a different testing method, but we can make rough estimates of US miles per gallon from Canadian figures. (This method assumes differences in testing methods will scale in a linear fashion).  These estimates (in pink, below) are based on the proportions of known US mileage figures to known Canadian mileage figures.

Overall, the computed numbers tell us what we can see from the official Canadian figures: that the dual clutch automatic has similar city mileage, but loses ground on the highway; and that the conventional automatic used with the 2.0 engine loses ground on both city and highway, as one would expect. Given the large size of the Dart’s interior, these figures seem reasonable, though not top of class. (Thanks, oh2o, for the gas mileage.)
