yea if you don't push it and you are doing all highway... you'll be at 40mpg

gotta love that 2010 cluster... I might get me one and have my boy adjust the mileage to match my current

Do you have the backlights turned up all the way? There's a little knob down by your power mirror button, maybe you bumped it.

Could of been an honest mistake, I never meant to imply you were dumb. ;)

I wonder how hard it is to do a cluster swap.
it should just be a plug and play. Since its digital, there should be a computer that keeps the odo, so you should beable to just unplug yours and plug up a 2010 one. My Cav was digital and thats all I had to do to swap, since the computer keeps the odo, not the actual cluster like the analog ones did.

It may sound 'dumb' but I've seen it many a time :)

Accidental bump of the knee from a dismount or poor entry, happens quite a bit. I've done it a couple of times myself too.

Mines a 2006 so I can't comment on the lighting, its bright enough for me :p

My needle didn't start moving until 112 miles... first tank was 27.1 mpg... second was 31.5. :p
holy crap!!! Thats awsome!!! Mine starts moving at 30 miles.... I dunno why. I just assumed a long time ago, its because I drive country roads with turns, and about 5 up and down hills. So its a constant go and slow. But I didnt think it would be that bad for me. Its about 20-21mpgs for me. My 2000 camry 2.2L 4cly did better than that with about 23-25mpgs. :( And I drove that harder, cause the 4cly sucked for performace. And I thought this versa would have been great comparied to it, but it does worse. Now I have taken some hwy trips, after filling, and I managed to get about 80-90 miles before it started to move. So I know theres nothing wrong with it. But now that spring is coming, I think itll be better. Since when I bought the car I was getting about 25-26mpgs. So time will tell.

That's um, insane!

What are the deets of your Versa? And do you live in a higher altitude region? The thinner the air, the better an engine breathes, the better the fuel economy.

25-26? That is kinda brutal... Basically, what I try to do is drive at the highest gear at all times. A lot of times, I'm going 35-40 in 6th gear. I don't hear the engine ping or resist, so I stay w/ 6th. Once I properly break in my engine, I'll do what I did with my old car. I'll throw my car into neutral everytime a light turns yellow as I am approaching. Or on a down ramp with the stop sign/light at the bottom. There's an awesome road that I take to get to school and I can literally be in neutral for the entire 4 mile strip. It's down a long and gradual hill. Obviously it becomes a problem if there's a car behind me, but I do it all the time.

exactly how I drive! you can see my best mpg in my sig. My goal for summer is 50mpg. If I can almost get 44 mpg in the winter on winter blend gas 50 mpg just might be doable.
