Holy Crap! Nice deal. Let's Refuel America.

Official Link: http://www.dodge.com/en/refuel/

INTRODUCING THE NEW $2.99 GUARANTEE.

Prices for fuel continue to rise at a seemingly alarming rate. However, the Let's Refuel America Program helps provide stability to that problem with a simple solution.

Using a special card, program participants pay $2.99 per gallon for a maximum number of gallons (which varies depending on model) of unleaded gas or diesel fuel in each of the next 3 years. So no matter what the price at the pump says, you'll never have to pay more than $2.99/gallon.

To qualify for the program, you must purchase or lease an eligible Chrysler vehicle from May 7 through June 2, 2008 and have a valid MasterCard or Visa credit card or check card.

These are some challenging times. Fortunately, the Let's Refuel America Program is doing what it can to help you get through it.
Here's how it works:

1. When you buy a qualifying new 2008 or 2009 (Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep vehicle) you tell us the Visa or MasterCard credit card you use to pay for your gas.
2. We issue you a Let's Refuel America card that you will use to buy gas in each of the next three years*.
3. Each time you buy fuel with that card, your credit card will never be charged more than $2.99/gallon no matter what the pump price may be.
4. It's our way of helping to refuel America.


Wow, way to go Chrysler.

*The gallon allotment calculation used to determine three years of gas at $2.99 per gallon is as follows: 12,000 miles driven per year multiplied by 3 years, divided by the vehicle's adjusted combined EPA City/Highway average miles per gallon (MPG) (average MPG calculated via average of all body models MPG within each nameplate). Please refer to attached matrix to view individual nameplate average MPG and program gallon allotment.

Yeah, so you'd get something like 2000 gallons @ 2.99 for a Charger R/T.

Maybe it's not the best thing in the world, but it's certainly better than getting any other company's car and getting 0 gallons @ 2.99, wouldn't you say?

Very true but maybe Chrsyler uped the sale price of those cars so that they reflect the gas prices so they arnt really losing any money but actually making some. (if that makes any sense ?)

Thats how business works, and I think you are thinking right on par with the business world, Nick. However I doubt they are doing this to make money, if anything they are just upping the sale prices to cover the costs of them losing money on gas. The object of this is to sell new cars and gain a ton of media exposure. So far it seems to be working because this was the buzz around campus yesterday (I know, slow day haha)

So what happens when the 3 years are up and you're used to paying $2.99 for your SUV, but now gas is $6.50? Or $7.50? Instant bankruptcy?

I was looking at this because my Grand Caravan ES that I use for work has 185,000 mi. on it but this deal max's out at $500 so I think I will wait awhile. With car sales the way they have been I'll bet Chrysler will be coming up with better rebates over the summer. Also, you would think the brand new mini van design would have been a little better on gas mileage, it's nothing to write home about.

They must be desperate for sales, why doesn't Chrysler stop being cheap and more fuel efficient cars, throw out the useless 4 speeds too!

Agree with that. I remember the Intrepid ESX-3 got something like 85MPG. And only cost like 5K more than the regular one.

Maybe they should've not killed the Intrepid and owned the American Eco-Market instead.

It's cheaper to let people live in the past than to get the company up with the times.

EDIT: But only for so long...gimmicks don't buy as much time as they used to

I'd like to know if they will decline paying the difference above $2.99 if you purchase mid-grade or premium fuel?

Terms say they pay $2.99 of it and you pay the rest I'm pretty sure.

Well you know the bean counters would do anything to save a buck.

I thought the small print on TV said regular only.
I thought that is kind of funny when the 3.5 & hemi take mid-grade (and the hemi-stick-Challenger is premium)
