I cannot believe how great this car is on gas. 5.3 litres to 100km. That is 52 mpg! Wow!!!

Do you find yourself getting highway mileage that is that goog? Or is it just me....?

Actually I set the cruise at 65 mph and just kept it there. Even in the city I was getting 33 mpg and my V is new. Imagine what I will get when it is broken in!

Any traffic at all? I find the stop & go traffic just kills my mileage. And when it's not stop and go, I generally sit in the passing or carpool lane :)

Is that what the trip computer says or did you calculate actual when you filled up? The computers are 15-20% optimistic.

Yes - CVT Tranny. BTW - I love the CVT. It was a reason that held me back from buying the car. Then I figured what the f#ck, Nissan backs it uop for a long time. Now I bless the CVT. Great performance and great economy. A nice balance I say.

imperial gallon made this make sense lol. i read this and figured you either A. coasted the entire way to your destination, or B. had someone tow you with the engine on lol

43mpg is about tops for me. Usually on a back country highway with a slight down incline toward destination and no stop signs.

I avg per computer 37-38.
