i would say #2, even when up to 140k, cuz you're in your most economical gear, covering the most miles per unit
I currently have 104,000kms or roughly 64,000 miles. No engine light or codes. Brand new air filter, and spark plugs are good and according to the manual don't need to be changed till 160,000kms or 100,000 miles. Car seems to be running fine, idles and revs fine.Versamack04 how many miles on your 2007 Versa? I have a 2009 and my average over 44000 miles is 33.4 MPG (US miles) or about 7L/100Km. My best tank was 600 km. The O2 sensor impacts fuel mileage and is typically recommended to be changed at 100K miles.

First of all, welcome to the Versa world!!I drive the car, in what my mind, to be very friendly. Never go over 3,000 RPM, and I'm always in 6th gear when i've reached my cruizing speed. Anyone have any suggestions or comments? Thanks
I dont drive economically usually shift at 2800rpm but it frequently sees 4500rpm under light load(like getting on an on ramp) . All my driving is in town and im still managing 27mpg. Question deos the base 6spd have a low fuel light and when deos it come on? Ive had less than an eighth tank and it didnt come on.
I too was alarmed how high the revs are in sixth:driving:
I've found city driving is a killer, and so is anything above 110km/h.
Lots of factors can help a bit but the biggest one is easy on the go pedal.
Enjoy the nvf!
edit How cold is it out there? I had to scrape heavy frost Monday morning
just curious did you change your radiatorQuestion : HR16DE engine
Route 1) Bumper to bumper traffic.
Extreme stop and go. Harsh acceleration at any moment where gap is seen.
Distance : 22 km
Time taken : 40-45 mins
Route 2) Empty Road.
Fast driving. No stop and go, but fluctuations of 120km/h to 140km/h (74 mph to 87 mph).
Distance: 65 km
Time taken : 50-55 mins
Route 2 is mentally more relaxing since its open roads, no battling, nicely driving.
My Question - which route is more economical in terms of fuel consumption?
nojust curious did you change your radiator
hmm because my friend has changed his radiator for 2008 tiida and for some strange reason it uses more fuelno
going at 140 should'nt cause heatup's i guess.
Route 1 is going to sharjah using ittihad road
Route 2 is going to sharjah using bypass road - best empty road to travel during evening hours of traffic. no cars = no fighting for way
But my radiator coolant is filled to max always.
was the battery disconnected while the radiator was being changed out? After disconnecting my battery my milage went from shit to super shit. When the ecu loses its fuel trim memory it all goes to hell and takes what seems like an eternity to come back..........seriously starting to hate this carhmm because my friend has changed his radiator for 2008 tiida and for some strange reason it uses more fuel
yes it waswas the battery disconnected while the radiator was being changed out? After disconnecting my battery my milage went from shit to super shit.

Yup that is what you should be getting. I just ran 530km mostly city and filled up with 45L, which works out to about 33mpg. I'm not running 38psi only 34. On the highway without AC, easy to get 600km +.Hey just giving a fuel mileage update on my car. I upped my tire pressure to 38psi and drove it as nicely as possible...i got 500 km's, which was all city driving, and just filled up today after doing a full tank highway driving and got 620 km's till it hit E....so definatly an improvement from when I first got it, and definatly pleased with it.
Along these lines, is there a way to make engine run a bit lean?Might be a bad O2 sensor, making your engine run rich.
