#2 of 46 Real Xterra Gas Mileage Just FYI
Jun 05, 2006 (8:26 am)
2006 Offroad Automatic driven 2175 miles. Overall 19.72 mpg. Best 23.61 mpg, Lowest 17.1 mpg (on first tank). Just FYI for those shopping and wondering about real numbers. 75 mph interstate driving across Wyoming yielded 19.2 mpg, 40 to 55 driving through Yellowstone and the Teton area yielded the 23.61.

Just bought my S 4x4 automatic Wed. night, was out the door on the highway Thur. night for a road trip, got 20.7mpg w/ac running. Since the engine hasn't been broken in yet I thought this figure was OUTSTANDING! I kept changing speeds between 65-75 to help with break-in, but pretty much stayed in the 70-75mph range, only had to step on the gas a few times for passing, pretty much smooth sailing the whole time. 332.5 miles, 16.03 gallons, if this holds up until my engine breaks in I'll end up looking like Joan Rivers after a face lift from my ear to ear smile

Just purchased a used 2006 S 4X2 with 12000 miles. On the ride back from the dealer (which was 200 mi away) I averaged 22.7 MPG. Most of the drive was on the interstate (in Florida) with the cruise set at 79. In town I averaged 19.8 MPG. I just recieved a K&N panel filter so we'll see what kind of difference it makes.

I have a 2005 S, 4x4, 6 spd. Just finished a trip to Houston from Tulsa. On the return leg I gassed in Sherman. Got back to Tulsa and refueled. Drove 199.5 miles on 8.544 gals. Mileage was 23.349. My speeds were from 45 to 50 in the orange cone zones to 78 in the 75 mph zones. AC was off. My X has 14K miles, Amsoil 5W30 oil, Amsoil gear lube in the trans,an Amsoil air filter and a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust. In town the wife usually averages 16+ with alot of street driving. On a trip with the AC running and doing about 80 mph I have averaged 21.22 mpg.

thinking of buying an 03 4x4 se and was wondering if the 14 mpg mark is true? I plan on putting a cold air volant and a magnaflow cat back or the gibson (can anyone recommend any others)and ditching the fan clutch for an electric unit any one have any feedback I have seen numbers as high as 19 but as low as 12 in the edmunds review but that was on a stock 00 My 2000 explorer 2dr 4x4 gets a solid 19 average with 130000 on the clock
#7 of 46 Reg vs Hi Octane gas
Feb 19, 2007 (8:40 pm)
I have seen this discussed, but I have never gotten a "difinitive" answer.
Can the Xterra and Pathys run OK on reg gas?
I assume the HP may be down a touch,
has anyone been able to test it both ways, and get real world #'s?
Is it hard on the engine?

Traded in '07 Nitro POS dissapointment. I did get up to 23+mpg on I-25 between Denver and Pueblo Colorado..It didn't make the trip back, got traded in for an '07 SE XTERRA new off the transport truck. 18 mpg at first and then improved to 21.8 generally hiway mpg by the time I got home...I am now up to 146 miles on this new unit...I'm very happy and feel it will improve on mpg.. If I don't drive like an idiot which I don't..
#9 of 46 Xterra MPG

I have an 06 S 4x4. I put a K&N cold air pipe and filter on it but everything else is stock. It has 20K for mileage. I get 23MPG on highway trips 65-70MPH. In town I get about 18-20MPG. Great little truck with lots of grunt. Have thought about a Cat-Back exhaust- any ideas??

Just took a 400mi trip, turned on the cruise control, set it at 70mph, and got 23mpg! That's some pretty good mileage from this bad boy.
