Regular unleaded is recommended by Nissan and it should do just fine. But if some of you want to spend more on gas, that's your choice. I tried premium gas before and drove for 2K and did not see any difference in mileage.

I don't know what the dealer had in there when i bought it BUT I only got 15.8 MPG with that one.I've used 93 ever since and the worst I have got was 17.5 and the best so far was 20.02.All caculations done with a caclulator.Right now my trip says 21.4 but i'm expecting somewhere around 20.0 when I fill up again and chack the right way.This is 90% city with speeds ranginf from 25 to 50.I have a 07 SL AWD it has 3,500 miles on it

I've got an 07 and backside of the fuel door warns me to use minimum 88 octane. In my area regular is 86, midgrade is 88, and premium is 90. For whatever reason my dealer reminded me twice (in the delivery process) to use premium. I'm delighted to be getting 20mpg around town even if it's using premium. It's just a couple of bucks a week. BTW, I use a calculator and divide miles by fuel purchased.

"I don't know what the dealer had in there when i bought it BUT I only got 15.8 MPG with that one."
I can assure you it had nothing to do with the grade of gas. You've been paying for premium for nothing. Stop doing it.

I don't know if it helps or not but I got 20.4 with my last fill up.I know that the manual says 91 or better but it says it will run on 87.I payed 34,700 for the car and I don't wanna skimp on the gas.Whats 150 more bucks a year to give it 91 or better?

We just bought an 06 Murano sl and when we test drove it the engine had no problem when i gunned it. The dealer then filled it with gas for us and almost immediately when we would gun it the car would be real choppy/jumpy as it tries to accelerate, do you think this could be from the gas? Any ideas.
#13 of 36 gas with ethanol

By mistake I filled my tank of my 07 Mo with gas that contains 10% ethanol. Can anyone put me at ease and let me know if I could have any problems with this mix. By the way is Hess gas in Fla. Thanks.

Ten percent ethanol won't hurt. Perhaps slightly less gas mileage. A number of refineries have 10% as there standard issue. If you had filled up with E85 then you could have a problem.

According to Edmund's website, premium unleaded fuel is recommended for the 2009 Nissan Murano.

Can you please guide us to where on edmunds it says to use premium. Also if anybody with the 09s can chime in and let us know what the manual has to say about the recommended fuel.
