NVF Fuel Mileage Tracking Thread

Here's a place to track your fuel mileage so we can all compare and contrast. Figured one post per user, each user just continually edit the post to add data to.

Would like to stick to this format:

DATE OF FILLUP: xx.xx.xx
Comments: (optional)
CTY/HWY MIX %: xx/xx
VEHICLE MILEAGE: xx
MILES DRIVEN: xx
GALLONS: xx
MPG: xx



Here's mine so far.

Date: 10.13.08
Comments: typical in-town work commute.
Cty/Hwy Mix %: 95/5
Vehicle Miles: 7,271
Miles Driven: 141
Gallons: 5.32
MPG: 26.5


Date: 10.20.08
Comments: interstate trip 70mph.
Mix %: 3/97
Vehicle Miles: 7,542
Miles Driven: 271
Gallons: 10.32
MPG: 26.26

I cannot understand how the gas suppliers control non-US car manufactures fuel economy?

I had an 89 Nissan P/U with the Z24 engine (factory w/8 plugs) and commonly calculated 35-40 MPG. Now, 20 years later with tech advancements, my 2009 Versa gets much less.

My current calculations average 29 MPG (driving like grandma) and 28 MPG (driving like speed racer). This is FAR from the window sticker of 31 (some get 36) as advertised.

I have less than 2000 on the clock and will keep better records for the future postings.

******EDIT**************

I travel 25 miles to and from work daily, at highway speed (55-75) with the same results. Maybe the engine needs more miles¿

i don't keep data, but i get about 27 in town driving like an @$$hole, and up to 38 on the highway if i keep it under 70. i've also towed a small trailer, with 3 mopeds on, and got near 35. i've got no complaints, coming from a 9mpg buick riviera and a 12mpg jeep

The 1.6L's get better gas milage that than 1.8's.

It also will vary with the different transmissions (CVT, Manual, and Auto)

So I have been trying to keep track, and just started recently.
So for example, on October 31, 2009 I put 39.78 Litres in the car, and the tank was 485 kms. So I take 485/39.78? That would give me 12.19 kms / litre. Is that how you do it?

If so, for the past four fillups (usually fill up once a week), I have averaged 12 kms/litre. Keep in mind, it's been very cold up here, so heat has been on all the time, and I have been doing about 80% city driving, and have the CVT transmission.

I did a google conversion and got 12.19 (kilometers per liter) = 28.6726577 miles per gallon. That is not bad for the conditions you posted.

I am yet to get under 34 us mpg in my 1.6. My lowest was 34mpg, my highest has been 41mpg and I average about 37mpg. I have a manual transmission though.


205,125 miles when she was given away
35 mpg last tank

Okay. So I did it right? Sweet!

Sounds like I'm getting the same then as everyone else. Ya I have the auto so that's probably why I'm not getting as good as you. And because I work in the city now a lot I have less commuting done on the highway (which I prefer). Oh well! I think it's still good
