1519 miles.
Average speed 55 mph
Average MPG 21.8

93 octane.

Approx city miles 50
approx crusing speed +5 over speed limit - 70-75-80 MPH

Route from Ft Myers FL
North on I75 to Gainesville - US 301 & A1A to I95 at GA line - US 17 near Charleston SC to Myrtle Beach SC
and return.

Took my title just in case but the Murano was flawless. :D

The MPG is "satisfactory" but not impressive.
My Chrysler T&C LXI weighed more, had a larger engine (3.8L) and got 24.3 MPG on this same trip last year under identical conditions.

Two caveats.
1- The Murano is a stylists car.
It was not designed using a wind tunnel.
Therfore the CD is a very high .39
A brick has a CD of .40 (OK I'm kidding about the brick)

2- the car now has 4200 miles after the trip.
It may loosen up a bit from here. MPG "could" improve.

It is still satisfactory. I didn't buy the car to get great gas mileage, and I like the looks even if they are not efficient.

The CVT is Bull feathers.
I just don't believe it is more efficient.
I DO believe it costs Nissan less. That is their modus operandi.

Overall the car is growing on me.
Even the Squealing brakes went away...........temporarily?

last year drove to Owensboro, KY. From Atlanta to Chattanooga, Nashville, Bowling Greens, Owensboro. Approximately 380 miles. Average speed - 67 mph. 24.5 mpg. I am happy.

I am also glad for you, hfelknor.;)

PS. FX35 - Atlanta - Birmingham, AL - 130 miles, average speed - 65 mph, mileage - disappointing 18.5 mpg.........:(
