Lately, I haven't been getting good mileage on my Versa due to city winter driving. I was wondering how do you guys compare. What's your all time average fuel consumption? All time best fuel consumption? And all time worst fuel consumption? Don't forget to mention engine size. I'm curious what kind of stats will appear. Please re-direct me if already existing thread!

2009 1.8L Hatch
Winter avg city: 20mpg
Winter avg highway: 29mpg
Winter High: 18mpg <-- Don't know what happened there
Winter Low: 29mpg

Summer: Bought the car this winter, still have to log my stats on excel :)

On my 2009 1.8 hatch
best: 7.2 L/100km (32.67 MPG (US))
Worst: 11.96 L/100km (19.67 MPG(US)
Ave: 9.27 L/100km (25.37 MPG (US))
had it for just over 1 year and put 12,000km (7,500miles) on it mostly city

This info from my "Fuel Friend" program on my phone where I enter every fillup.
On the 2009 the AC is always on when you are in defog mode, it does not matter if the AC light is on or not. I modded mine to allow me to control it, this made an improement in milage.

Went from 32mpg to 36 in a week. I am loving this warmer weather. Should be back up to my 38 soon. Hoping to hit the 40mpgs this summer after she gets her first tuneup.

I keep an accurate mileage log and only fill up to full tanks. I enter data into an IPad app for tracking and reporting. Here's my summary:

2008 SL Sedan 1.8L with CVT.
Purchased in Feb 2013 with 114,000kms on it (off lease).

Feb 2013 - April 2014
- total Kms driven: 33273
- total average MPG: 32.80
- best MPG: 40.89
- worst MPG: 23.47
- approx range for full tank: city 450-500kms, highway 550-600kms (still with 4-5 liters of reserve).

Summer Avg MPG (may 1 to August 31 2013): 35.13
Winter Avg MPG (dec 1 2013 to mar 31 2014): 28.95
* I had my car parked outside for all this winter but used the block heater every night so that when I started it in the morning, coolant was already luke warm thereby aiding in quicker time to reach hot temps. We had a very cold, snowy and long winter this past season here in greater Toronto area, however using the block heater I believed helped with better than expected avg winter MPGs.

Hope this info is helpful. Overall I am happy with the mileage. Installed a SRI this winter so I am hoping for a bit better MPG this summer.

Are those US or imperial mpg? Assuming you converted to US, numbers look good.

Just a quick Update!
With my latest purchase of alloy wheels and summer tires, my mileage has dramatically improved. What probably explains my poor mileage above is the thread on my winter tires creating resistance, outdoor temperature, engine temperature & snow. Hopefully this summer will give my versa a chance to prove herself statistically with regards to mileage.
