But I was going down hill for quite awhile. I knew it was coming up so i reseted the empg. I was surprised tho...Arfter 30-40 miles it slowly creped back down to the usual 20-25mpg
anyway..cheapest gas i found in the bay area is $1.99 for regular. I drive alot so I fill up $40 a week. ohh and I always use regular....The only time my Mo tasted Premium was the first fill up from the Dealership!
I'm also getting about 18.5 mpg in city driving. I think that is pretty good for the performance/weight of the vehicle, and the generally heavy foot I have. Certainly better to much better than any other SUVs in its class that I know of.
I've been getting right around 22 mpg since I got past the breakin mileage. About 19-20 mpg before that. Considering that the MO was a replacement for a Sunfire that got 29 mpg, I am very happy with the 22 mpg.
I have been adding 93 octane @ approx. $2.10/gallon or about $40 per fillup...which lasts me about two weeks.
Made my first road trip two weeks ago. Northern California to Reno Nevada for the Air Races. 400 miles round trip and averaged 20 mpg. Only 2000 miles on my Mo, so very happy with that. I am still impressed with how quiet the car is on the highway.
I only have 1100 miles on my Murano, but I never get more than 15.3 mpg using the 91 Octane gas. Mind you, I mostly drive in a congested traffic. Hoping to get a better gas mileage once the break-in is over.
It depends a lot on how long your trips are. Even when the weather is warm and it doesn't take the engine a long time to reach operating temperature, short trips kill mileage. My commute is very short - just about 5 miles in the city. As a result I get around 15mpg.
When I had a longer commute in the SF Bay Area, I would get approximately 20mpg combined city/hwy on a 15-20 mile commute.
