Well I normally get around 32-34MPG city using non-ethanol fuel and a few mpg above that for highway.

I filled up yesterday to go to the mountains, went 344something miles and it took 9.something gallons to fill up. That's 38MPG even with the AC on and up and down hills. Average speed was 55/65MPH hwy and 35/45MPH city. traffic was not bumper to bumper. I have a 6spd manual. every other blue moon I get a 38MPG
I drive the speed limit and I'm easy on take offs, its a 1.8 so can't ask for much =)

I average 34MPG in the winter and 37MPG in the summer

Wow that's impressive. Do you use regular oil or synthetic? I know it probably doesn't make much of a difference but just curious. I'm averaging around 28mpg lately, I feel like my bike racks are affecting the aerodynamics of my car though.

If you get the Manual or CVT, it will have better mpg than the 4spd auto, I think. And when compared to it's competitors, it is slightly quicker from 0-60 with 9.4 (*Yaris 1.5 5spd man: 9.3 sec, but auto will be slower, and Honda Fit non sport 5spd auto: 11 sec, 5spd Man: 9.5 sec*) Smaller engines save gas, go figure....

Also note, the versa feels more of a compact, than a subcompact, and that shows in the heavier ride.

*values from Edmunds online, personally, I've timed a 0-60 Versa 1.8s 4spd Auto 0-60 time of 9.4

Thanks,
I use regular oil 5/30 and 89 octane and I keep her below 3,000RPMs.
where I'm at there's not much traffic, but if I was living in Atlanta, GA or a bigger city, the numbers would be lower

Welcome!
For all of May I averaged 42.6 mpg Imperial, or 35.5 mpg US.
I drive approx 90% rural and divided highways, so between 90 and 120km/h or 55 to 70mph. A/C on mostly.
1.8L with manual and cruise control.
My mpgs did rise by 2 when i replaced a front wheel bearing at the end of April.
You may be able to find cruise on an S trim with manual and some sort of convenience pkg, but i'm not sure cuz i have an SL:D
Manual rocks!...but i am addicted to my power windows and locks..they have never failed on my versa and altima! Welcome:)

Since the trip computer is known to be optimistic I decided to do a careful test. I have a 2012 Versa 1.6S 5-speed manual, stripper that just passed 1,000 miles. I drove 351.3 miles on 8.817 US gallons or 39.84 MPG.

I had the AC on the whole trip, it was 90% highway miles with a couple extended bumper-to-bumper periods. (About 35 minutes going under 5MPH) I did NOT go slow, half of the trip was kept right around 65MPH, the other half was whatever the traffic was doing. I won't admit to how fast I was going on a public forum but let's say it would have been an expensive ticket.

I could not be more pleased. The car is only rated to get 36MPG and I would have been happy with that. I'll imagine it will improve when I switch to synthetic oil.
