the V is not designed to run at the higher octane, so yeah thats the downside of running a higher grade, now if the ECU is programmed to take advantage of a higher grade, you can actually boost mpg with a programed ecu + performance boost as well, hopefully they will be out for the versa soon
lol yeah i didnt care before lol hahahahahahhaha now i do ^_^v
thats od because ive been using the minimum and i put 93 in it the other day to see if it would help with the cranking issues and my gas mileage is better...
Usually with gas that is how it goes. All gas is not created equal. Even the same brand of gas in different parts of the country are different. Actually as we all know by the extreme differences in mpgs that versa owners get that our cars are even different from eachother. So while one person may be getting great on 93 another may get really poor on it. Way too many variables to figure it out.

Only thing you can do is keep track of your own and use the same pump, station, grade of gas. So far on my V my worst tank of gas got me 34mpg of 100% highway. My best tank got me 38.84 of mixed driving. My average over the life of my car is about 38mpgs. She hasn't seen a winter yet with oxygenated fuel but then again it isn't fully broken in yet and I haven't switched to synthetic oil either.
im probably gona get it completely switched to synthetics gear lube also.. i just think its funny good ol ford fuel aka Bp works the best in my car :)
