What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the Dodge Dakota

Dodge Dakota Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2004 0 Gas mileage is not too great. Essentially, it is no better than many larger trucks. Long trip highway mileage averages 19.5 mpg, but in-town driving really pulls it down. My driving is 75% highway, but just that 25% town driving pulls the mileage down to about 17. see full Dodge Dakota review
Dodge Dakota Real Gas Mileage: Cons

4-speed automatic RWD
HORRIBLE. EPA rated for 17city 20hwy but due to transmission problem, I doubt I exceeded 20mpg on most occasions. see full Dodge Dakota review

It's a v8 4x4 truck. The mpg is awful. Not that you would expect different. see full Dodge Dakota review
