HR16DE
4 speed auto

Summer
A/C On 95% of the time.

Driving Condition - Most intense traffic ever - driving like retard.
Worse than city driving also :P
TOO much start stop.
reach 4K rpm in no time.

Mileage - 25.43 MPG


Edit : Looking at the poll results, i made a rough spreadsheet.
I calculated the average MPG for each engine.
The method gives approximate results, however something is better than nothing :P

Thanks for putting in the time to make the spread sheet. My mileage has dropped alot. Part due to cold weather, oxygenated gas and new larger wheels and tires. I am only getting 32mpg lately. Also it seems my initial numbers might be slightly higher then they actually are because the speedometer/odometer is wrong according to a new nissan recall. I am not all that happy about all this. I guess it is still good.

Wont winter increase mileage?
I heard colder temperature increases horsepower and economy.
I get better mileage in winter even with a/c on.

In my experience, fuel economy is always worse in the winter. I found this that my explain some of the reasons why:
Why is the fuel economy of an automobile worse in the winter than in the summer?: Scientific American
Basically, even if you don't idle your car to warm it up before starting to drive, you still have a higher viscosity of oils and greases in the cold, which leads to increased friction that your engine has to overcome.

You are defying the laws of physics then. While you do increase HP with colder air it's because it is more dense your engine is adding fuel to keep the proper air/fuel ratio. If all things are the same you will get less mpg when it's colder out. If you get more then there is more to the story.

well now I can see why you might get more when you tell me the temps. Your winter temps are perfect for driving while your very hot summers are causing your AC to be working overtime.

For people with below freezing winter temps where they change the fuel blend in the winter it's a totally different story.

That makes sense, 15-20 C are not exactly cold temperatures, it's probably ideal for driving without A/C and the engine cooling fan having to come on. I can understand why you would get more mpg.
