I'm headed to Baltimore soon, from Phiadelphia. I'm gonna follow your suggested 'test': fill tank w/regular, reset mpg computer (I typically check average mph as well), and stick the cruise 68mph. Additionally, I will refill before city driving occurs, in order to eliminate that variable.
Let's see what I achieve, and will post my results here.

OK, let us know.
Another "trick" I've found helps get max FE on my Sentra (maybe in general): keep an eye on the instantaneous mpg meter as you cruise on the highway (cruise NOT on). I've found that even slight variations in gas pedal pressure make a significant difference in mpg, and I can see the effects of that on the instantaneous meter. In general, the lighter the pedal pressure, the higher the mpg, but it surprised me that what I thought was light pressure was not light enough for max FE. Using that approach, I've achieved my highest mpg results with the Sentra.
Maybe more effort than it's worth, and it's possible to overachieve the EPA highway ratings just by setting the cruise control (at reasonable speed, e.g. 70 or less), but thought I'd pass it on. At the least, you might switch to the instantaneous mpg readout on your Baltimore trip and see what kind of mpg you are getting along the way.

Need to buy a car for my daughter this week. Looking at Sentra S Auto with conv package, splashguards, & mats only. I live in MARYLAND. What pricing have you seen before adding TTL? I think there are other "hidden" incentives to move these cars that the dealers have because of the 2013's coming in. Thanks.

Jan 11, 2013 (12:45 pm)
I'm in the process of getting quotes on this car in the NY tri-state area. Just started this afternoon, but so far (just 5 quotes with many more to go), I'm at slightly under invoice before the $500 Nissan financing incentive.
I do not mind looking much further away. The last car I bought came from MD to NY. I only had to pay $250 and saved thousands compared to local dealers.
Anyone know of aggressive dealers for these cars?

Sounds like you got a pretty good deal, to get leather for $18K is pretty impressive.
If you are willing to dig, there are some great deals out there. Anderson Nissan sold a 13 SL for $16,720 (price was reported at voiceofthedriver.com)
