Hit a new high....44.6

I signed up with Fuelly and plan on tracking MPG on that site. Very interested in seeing how the numbers will compare. Hopefully not too much variance and will stay above 40 MPG. Probably won't need to fill up again toward the middle of this week. I most likely wait until I am down to one or two bars on the gauge.

Not sure if it's just the cold or what but my mpg has taken a small hit this past week running around 30mpg. Still hard for me to complain since anything is better then the 15mpg I was getting in my Ford Ranger.

Example: My average mileage that is displayed on the dash is 38 to 39 MPG, but actual mileage (miles driven divided by gallons added) is 33 to 35 MPG. I use my "Trip A" for miles driven and zero it out after every fill-up. I also zero out my average mileage display after every fill-up as well. If you want to know your true mileage, do the math at the pump, don't be fooled by your dash indication.

The average MPG for a Versa Note as recorded by Fuelly.com users: 33.6, but people here are always raving about getting 40+ MPG....they are being duped by their cars.

i never go by what my fuel economy says in my dash, but i have found mine is a little more accurate and is usually only between 1 to 2 mpg off from the actual mpg that i calculate. and yes i am one of those people raving about 40+ mpg as i am able to obtain those numbers in the real world.

We're seeing the same thing. Course, the car frequently needs the A/C on when defrosting so that might be some of it.

I notice a marked difference with driving style. If I baby it and take off from stops like a slug, and cruise on highways under 70, i can get my mileage in the low - mid 30s.

But, if I drive naturally (with a heavy foot) cruise 70-75, and take off aggressively from stops, my mileage plummets to below 30,

I've found that my display is about -4 MPG off. So I just subtract that amount from what the display says.

Usually I get 40 MPG in normal suburban driving. During the summer it would display like 46-47 MPG which I know in my gut was way to optimistic, so really I was getting 41-42 MPG. In winter it varies to much from 36-40 MPG depending on the lower temps, decrease in tire PSI, winter fuel blends, and longer time it takes to heat up to optimum operating temps so higher idle etc...

That is what I am thinking too. I find that I have to run the defrosters for a good amount of time or my windshield fogs right back up. Not sure if it's the windshield or the car or what. Not a huge problem.

This is our 3rd Nissan (Frontier, Xterra), the other two did it too. I think it has something to do with the seal and off-gassing from it. It get's better over time and regularly cleaning the inside of the windows helps. I came to this conclusion when we replaced the windshield in the Frontier and replaced the seal with Nissan OEM, the issue became worse and then got better over time. I think the Note is especially prone because of the large amount of glass. Also, when the kids are in the car it's more noticeable but they put out alot of heat.
