I disagree. It has been discussed before. Many of those who use super unleaded (including myself) experience about 1 mpg or better gas mileage improvement which translates to about 20 miles more per tank which again translates to one gallon less per fillup. Now you are paying about 20 cents per gallon more which is about 4 dollors per tank but saving the cost of that extra gallon (about $2.50 these days). Performance is difinitely much better with super so you will be paying at most $1.50 per tank more (over regular) to get better performance. I don't know of many modifications to the engine which will cost you less and give you the kind of inprovement this does. So wasting money? Not a cent!Sgt_Beavis said:

lawbroker said:absolutely, without question, the Murano runs better on premium. Have tried them all, and the car is noticeably sluggish using regular. Don't notice a difference in gas mileage though, but it would seem that if the car is sluggish using regular, one would probably go heavier on the gas pedal in an attempt to 'recover' the performance, thus lowering gas milege.
Lucky you.For the 10 cents per gallon @ 20 gallons x 1 fillup per week x 52 weeks per year
I would love to hear an oil executive attempt to justify that. :bsflag:bruno said:
In Canada, the extra amount paid for 91 octane (highest grade generally available) and 87 octane is at least 10 cents per liter - or 40 cents per US gallon.
How do you like Murano without center mufler? What did you do to it? Pictures?See5 said:Normal everyday driving mix I get 19.2.
On a round trip to to Chicago (320 mi) this week I milked 25.4. At one point prior to stop and go I was @ 26.6 but fell back.
This on regular gas, without center muffler, 2,500 miles on Mo and dashboard calculated..
