You are in the Nissan Altima
What is this discussion about?
Nissan Altima, Sedan

I recently purchased an Altima 2.5S. I am just wondering when the gas light comes on and the dte is blinking, approximately how many miles do I have to get to the gas station?

It all depends on the type of gas mileage you are getting.
In my 05, I went for DAYS with that light on if I do around town driving...like back and forth to classes at college and such...but it almost caught up with me.
The other day I went four days with that light on and when I FINALLY went to get some gas, I had to get over 18 gallons to fill up the tank...so I had less than 2 gallons left...
So if its around town driving, I'd say one or two days..but if its highway driving...you might not want to wait more than one.
My Altima does NOT get stellar gas mileage either...

The car has an advertised 20 gallon tank but whenever the light goes on, the car needs about 16 to fill it up. Either it doesn't have a 20 gallon tank or they're playing it way on the safe side.
I find my gas mileage pretty good on the highway but locally, where I average around 15mph, it can really drink it.

I think it depends somewhat on where you live, but according to my research that's a great deal.

Anyone out there own a 2.5 S or 3.5 SE for awhile and can comment on what kind of mileage that are really getting. I know what Nissan says, but I want real world figures from both models.

What kind of mileage do you get maxamillion1? and what do you consider stellar mileage? I'm thinking of buying a new Altima and want to make sure it isn't more of a gas hog than I thought.
#62 of 84 Get the V6...Its well worth it...

The I4 model gets gas mileage similar and sometimes WORSE than the V6...
If you can afford it, get the V6...I wish I had.
#63 of 84 Replacement Tires

Well, it's time to replace those crappy Bridgestone Touranza EL42s on my '03 3.5 SE, after only 27K! Does anyone recommend a great replacement tire? I need good traction in snow and wet, and better mileage than these shoes.

i purchased a 04, last november. she was used with 19,000 miles on her. but i got her for 14,000
so far she's great and the pervious owner took good care of her. she's gold.
i still have my old 99 altima......she's the reason i looked for another one. she has 240,000 miles and no problems. never had any problems out of her. she's never even had a tune-up! just oil changes here and there. my friend had the same 99 as mine, and is always taking her in for some type of maintance. i swear she spends at least 350.00 every 6 months. of course here dealers recomends these things......i told her they see a sucker at high noon when she comes in. they love her so much that she pays sometimes in payments!!l lol!
i use my old one for inner city driving and she's still strong!
altima's are great cars!
i was on my way to buy a 05, when i saw this one........and the price was right!
can't wait for the next body style.
