Congratulations on your new car! Is it a CVT or stick? When you hit 48 mpg on the highway, was it flat or downhill? 48 mpg on a level grade for any distance at all would be spectacular for a 2.0L engine with its power.

I bought the manual transmission. Almost entirely because I wanted it, but I also believe it was the only manual in the entire city with a luxury package.
The 48 that it briefly hit (and that is approximate, because my computer spits out info in litres per 100 kilometres), was on a flat road. I don't think it stayed there for long, so I am not sure how accurate it is. All I know, is that I am so far extremely happy with the mileage it is getting. The difference is massive compared to my old Suzuki.
And thanks for the welcome. I see how the forums work now, I was a little confused at first.

don't rely on computer for any meaningful instantaneous miles per gallon figures.
Average your MPG over 3 consecutive full tanks of gas and let us know what your MPG is. That would be a useful comparison number.

What kind of mileage have you achieved over the last few months?
I just purchased a Sentra S, CVT and Luxury Package and during the short test drive (entirely city) I got. 7.1 litres per 100 KM. That would be 33 MPG (in US gallons).
