I have been able to put around 335 miles till I had to fill up.I was just wondering what everbody else was getting. I cant remember what my chevy was getting but I think it was more or less around the same.I am really pleased with this truck man it really flys down the road. I was really impressed with the dealership too. I got A phone call from my salesmen today asking me if I had any questions about the truck. I told him no but the only comment I had is why did Nissan wait so long to make this truck.He just laughed and said please come on down to the dealership I've got something for you.A couple of hours latter I showed up at the dealership and my salesmen came out and gave me A Nissan hat and A tour of there service department. I was impressed the place was huge!!.I was glad that the salesmen took the time to call me almost A month after I bought the truck. Never got that from the chevy dealer!!!HMmmm what does that tell you..

The most I've gotten on a tank has been 388 miles....22.1 gallons.....17.56 mpg. That was a 50/50 mix of driving.

I'm pleased. :wink:

Man gas mileage is so dependant on driving style its amazing. With just a normal easy driving style I can easily get over 100 miles to a 1/4 of a tank. However when I am in a playful mood I can just as easily only get about 60-70 miles out of the same 1/4 of a tank.

I have not had the best fuel mileage but my daily commute involves driving up hill for many miles to get home. I average about 14.5 mpg (mostly city)with each tank and the best I have seen was 16.5 after a long freeway drive. Now at ~4,500 miles and it does appear the fuel mileage is slowly improving the more miles I put on it. The Titan is, after all, a powerful poorly aerodynamic truck and my employer reimburses me 35 cents a mile when I use it for work and if I haul equipment or supplies they pay me another $50 per day of use.

Really Poor MPG 9.2

I now have 640 miles on my TITAN and I drive mostly around town and some on the freeway. My MPG is around 9.2. I have called the dealership and they informed me wait until it breaks in around 5000 miles. My previous Dodge v10 got better mileage.

Ouch that 9 is pretty low. Are you heavy on the pedal. What is your driving style. Also what grade gas do you use, just curious.

This issue will never die until the Titan becomes completely electric or hydro powered. :lol:

LOL I still believe my truck runs better with the higher octaine gas. But I don't like paying for it so I get the cheapo. Hey who wants to pay 2.50 a gallon.

Not I, but that's what I was paying a week ago. This morning it was 2.46/gallon and cost me $52 to fill-up the tank with about 21 gallons. I get some mileage reimbursement for using my truck on the job, but the rain kept me in the office this week so I'm footing the bill on this tank.

I've been doing a little octane testing myself lately and can tell you for a FACT that I get between .5 and 1 mpg better with the 89 octane as compared to the 87 or 93. I've got a feeling that was the octane intended for these engines but Nissan wanted another ace to brag about because only the Hemi right now requires 89, everything else is 87.

If you haven't tried the 89 give it a shot and you'll see what I mean. I haven't done the math yet to see if it's worth the extra .10 cents a gallon but it will give you a slight bump in overall mpg. With 87 and 93 I get the exact same mileage!! Weird...
