K&N makes no general fuel economy claims about their air filters. I run cheap Frams in my Nissan minivan and just toss the filter when it's time - no messing around with oiling it or worrying about messing up any sensors from the oil.
I get better than EPA mileage. I tossed a seat I don't use, don't drive like a demon, keep the psi checked on the tires, don't haul extra gear in the car, don't race up to stop signs, don't idle and I track every tank of gas as a way to generally tell how the systems are running.
My van started getting better mpg around 5,000 miles, but didn't really hit its stride until ~10,000 miles and kept inching up incrementally from then on.
What Really Saves Gas? And How Much?
Save Gas with Smart Driving and Slick Aerodynamics
One other thing you can do is use "pure gas". It costs more but the increased mpg that people typically get may offset the extra price at the pump.

I just passed 1000 miles on my 2012 SL-SV AWD Rogue. I know, she's just a new baby. This is actually my second Rogue, I traded in a 2009 SL AWD to get her. (I was wickedly upside down when I bought the 2009...I didn't really NEED a new car, but I cut my monthly payment in half by upgrading). Anyway, no problems yet. MPG is averaging about 19.5. I primarily drive city, my commute is literally 5 minutes. (I'd walk if I didn't have to take my son to school, which is a little further down the road). That's pretty similar to what I had with the 2009. I never had any issues with the 2009, it had 45000 miles on it when I traded it in (was almost 3 years old to the day). Well, I did have the constant tire pressure light issue, where the light would come on even if the tire pressure was fine.
I obviously love the Rogue enough to have gotten a second one. When I was looking I test drove a Sportage, Rav4, Tuscon, Soul, CX-7, and CRV. Came right back to the Rogue, which honestly shocked me.
My only gripe is the lack of a pull-down cup holder in the back seat (like the Murano), and the GPS. My parents have a 2009 Murano and we always called the GPS Witch Hazel. The 2012 GPS is not any better. The routing it takes you on is absolutely insane at times. I'm keeping my Garmin for backup if I'm going somewhere unfamiliar.

I have taken my car to two different dealership to get this problem corrected. The first dealership told me that it was the aerodynamics of the car caused this but claimed that none of the servicemen heard the wind noise. I took it to the second dealership and they replaced the seals around the front door. If someone has had this problem fixed, please let me know what the dealership did to resolve the problem.

I have not been able to get a resolution on this issue, but it is a known defect. Nissan sent an engineer out to inspect my car in January, and they have now had the opportunity to correct the issue five times.
I experience the popping noise, and my navigation reboots itself. The console has actually shut down entirely at some points. Nissan has tried to work with me by offering me free services for my patience. As I stated initially, this problem has been ongoing since I was driving the car home from the dealership that first day. I find the popping noise, and the rebooting to be a substantial impairment to the use and the value of my automobile. I'm really considering pursuing a lemon law claim, and have a call into that same Nissan engineer to see what my options are.
You need to follow-up with this. Nissan knows it is an issue, and they are willing to attempt to accommodate you. I'm looking for the fully functioning car that I spent my good money on - which as of this date I have not been able to realize or enjoy unencumbered by this issue.
Also - I'm curious what state you are in because Nissan states that this issue is specific to Florida.

I finally took my 2011 rogue in and they had to reallign it. it is fine now, but waiting to see if it happens again. They had to replace the front rotors on the brakes while it was in the shop due to a vibration I had when braking. Man wish I did not buy this car.
#195 of 208 Vent Control Valve

I have a 2008 SL rogue. Has anyone had problems with their vent control valve?
My service engine light came on, took it in. They told me it was the vent control valve. I have yet to get it replaced, mostly because I'm sure I can find a mechanic cheaper than the dealership.

It is the air-conditioning vents -- not the door insulation or the sunroof. Mine – I have a Rogue SV SLP 2011 -- was doing that with AC on and with the fan at higher RPM's, as well as when driving on a freeway at higher speeds when there was high frontal air intake, especially noticeable on windy days. I took it to the dealer and they found there was nothing wrong with the AC per se, and recommended me to re-adjust the vent fins (flaps) to wider angled positions. I wound up doing just that, and the whistling noise went away... I still can hear the noise come back when I keep the flaps ajar -- they need to be either fully opened or closed, or carefully positioned at a certain, wider angles. Hope this helps...

I have the exact same car and have just been told the differential needs replaced at a cost of $3000.00 installed. Not covered under warranty. This vehicle has been a lemon since day one.

I'm curious, how many miles are on the vehicle? I would think the differential is part of the drive-train.

Nissan dealer did take care of the differential problem, no charge, thank goodness! Mileage was 43,000 when we purchased from the dealer.
