Alan, just out of curiosity, what type of fuel are you using?

I only run premium. Usually Shell or Mobile, but only and always premium.

I'm easily in the mid-20's when I'm on the highway... but I'm a little under the 80 mph mark that you're cruising at.
I wonder if the extra 10 mph had something to do with it

Mind you. I'm not complaining. I didn't buy the G35 with fuel economy in mind. I boughtg it for performance, safety and stellar good looks.....
I'm okay with a 306 HP rocket delivering 18 mpg on the highway at around 80 mph.
#53 of 68 Top speed during break in

Hey guys -- what should be the "allowable" top speed during the break in period? I read the manual, it only says not to go over 4000 rpm... nothing about top speed.
Say I was driving 140-150km/h during gradual acceleration and not going over 4000 rpm.. is that okay?

I think 130 should be fine.

Not sure if this was already posted but these highway mpg estimates are at 55mph. From what I understand all these values will now be recorded at true speeds, ie. 65mph which will cut down on the mileage but give you more legit estimates. My car has a 1000 miles and im getting 20 on the nose.

I haven't done any calculation off the gallons in/miles out for about a week and a half now, but I'm back to my 'spirited' yet reasonable driving habits and I'm in the same range.
Estimate according to the car is 19.9.
#57 of 68 MPG, not sure I'd worry....

Hi again guys. I'm really not sure I ever make it to an average of 19 MPG. I have about 5K on my 2007 35X.
However, I can't say I bought a G35 for the economy of it. It's a beast right out of the box. we also have a new Accord, V-6, 240 HP. Gets better mileage than the infinity, 22 - 23 Highway, but, you're driving in an Accord!
I'll take the few MPG less for the sheer fun of the G35.
My still and only issue are rattles in the dash......drives me nuts every time.

I don't have any rattles, but if there is a temp change occurring after just turning on the heat, I hear a slight sound behind the center stack... sounds a little like sand pouring through a rain stick.
It doesn't happen very often and it's only when the car is cool and the heater is heating it up inside.
My other rattle is not the car's fault.
At night or on cloudy days, my sun glasses are in the overhead holder... and they rattle. Drives me nuts.
I agree... I bought this car for all it offered.
I wouldn't have bought it if it was only getting 7 mph, but I'm super happy with the car, and the balance it offers on MPG vs Performance.
Oh, and now that you're an owner... it's Infiniti, not infinity.
