Hey i have my 2008 versa manual 6 spd.

I have a dynomax exhaust and a fujita CAI. Running on 17" 205/45 tires.

Since i bought it in 2007 i can not pass 450km on a full tank.
Air filter clean , tire pressure good , no codes nor check engine.

I have complained to nissan and they have always told there is no codes that come up and that everything is ok.

I live in montreal, QC.

I do about 3400 RPM @ 120km/h.

I tried once taking it easy by shifting at low RPMS and keeping it at speed limit but no dif.

I did montreal and myrtle beach and couldnt breach higher than 450km

Any suggestions?

Mostly highway ... But im freaking out everyone else is posting like 500 to 600 kms on a tank and im not able to do that.I always drive around 110 to max 120km/h on cruise.

My first car was a 4 cyl 2.0l mazda mx6 a 55l tank and i was doing an average of 600km no problem .

Wondering if i have some type of faulty injection issue. But wouldnt the check engine pop up?

Now in winter i fill up 20 liters and i barely do 110 km.

Anyone else experiance an issue like this and resolved it?

Boff i drove a rental versa for a week and there is a big dif ..... For sure automatic is more eco... Like for example i did 120 km/ h at slightly below 3000rpm.

Not to sure whats going on but im going to the dealer once again to try to resolve it.... Since i got this car they replaced all kinds of parts:

2 axles (left and right)
2 tables (left and right)
Stab links about 4 times
Crossmember
Both shock towers
Steering column
All bearings

Im pushing for a tranny change due to im
Having a hard time putting in 1 2 3 but its easy on 4 5 6
Or atleast to look into it. My clutch is still good.
They always try to brush me off cause of my mods and blaming everything on em.

How many kms on your car?

I'd try a different dealer if possible.

My first one, where I bought the car is awful and didn't want to replace stuff under warranty. So I switched to another dealer. Much better service and things are replaced under warranty, even with mods.

If under warranty I definitely would.

I don't like the noise of my 1.6 over the last blistering cold day. I'm hoping this engine issue doesn't make it's way to our little guys. It was a slight tick, could just be the injectors but seemed different. It didn't get louder or faster with pressing the gas pedal though. I think I might actually have a little exhaust leak on the manifold.

get it documented at nissan that you brought it in under the warranty mileage for ticking. Might be a saving grace later in life. It seems cylinder 3 is low compression and then boom. So either convince them to do a compression check or do one yourself.

Ok that sounds good I'm still under warranty I will have them test it, now if it is bad I just need to think of how to convince them to drop an mr20 into it lol.
