Smile Dodge Dart Fuel Mileage

I have a 2013 Dodge Dart SXT/Rallye with 6 speed auto and a 2.0 engine.
I bought this new and traded in a 2012 Dodge Avenger with 23,000 miles on it because of the poor gas mileage.
The Dart has impressed me with its far superior fuel mileage. Once I broke in the car and driving in warm weather, I have getting between 24-27 mpg in city driving and 33 to 44 mpg on the highway.
The car has been so far trouble free with 14,000 miles on it. It has been a great car and I love it.

I have heard some great mileage from Darts, that is impressive from a sporty car, my buddy has one he drives 70 miles round trip every day and gets in the 40's, that is doing 80 mph (but a lot of drafting other cars doing 80 too)

Isnt the Dart Euro-derived, engine wise? If so that would explain the good economy.

The engine is US made, however is based on the one used in the Alfa Romeo Giulietta, if I remember correctly.

The only 2.0 litre in the Giulietta is a TDI unit, even the 235 BHP unit is a turbocharged 1.75 gas.

My mistake. It's the 16V 1.4 that's a Fiat engine - only in the Aero trim though.
