#12 of 17 Weekend Test: Pure Gasoline All The Way Down
Mar 27, 2012 (5:50 am)
Headed to VA Beach over the weekend. and all the way down we attempted to locate pure stations or stations which had the Pure gasoline.. finding our share and gassing up, paying on average $4.65 per gal.. Or results were not favorable. Getting only 24.9 mpg's highway. This is really starting to bother me.. knowing that one day three weeks ago.. we got 36.8 mpg's on the back roads of MD & PA. what happen?.. Where did we go wrong?.. We've tired everything in the book.. Yet, after thinking about it.. I remember taking the juke to the dealer as part of our third recall. Mind you I didn't have any recalls done to the JUke since then.. One main recall was to re-flash the Jukes computer.. and soon after.. our MPG's dropped.. Could this be why one weekend we got great mpg's then had the computer re-flashed and got poor mpgs afterward.. one may never know.. I kept telling myself.. don't fix it if it aint broke..

That happened with Honda Civic Hybrid owners. A software update hammered the mpg.

This is really bothering me.. Knowing that the Nissan dealer re-flashed the chip and our milage went down hill. This isn't the only time this has happen to us. Two other vehicles had the same type of issues after: re-flashing or getting plugged in by emission testers. I'm very tempted to go out and disconnect the battery for e few days just to see if the computer would reset. ( I knew I should have told them not to flash the Juke)
A glimmer of hope on our Juke's horizon.. is that I've just started a page devoted to the possible 10th anniversary of the juke.. Yeah I know thinking way ahead.. But I've already gain support from Steve bower via Husky liners..

I bought my Juke in October 2011 and got a great deal for an SL. Car has been great with no problems minus the recall. I keep seeing everyone gripe about mpg, you bought a turbocharged car! You need to be using non ethanol 93 grade. In the event I cannot get ethanol free I still use 93. The turbo is there to pick up what a1.6 liter does not have, good take off and pickup on passing. I love the car as they built it and look forward to driving it everyday. I have even have several people I work with considering buying one. Am always happy to toss them my key to take for a spin. This is an urban cross under, made to be fun and different. I cannot help but notice how all other cars look alike but the Juke definitely stands out!
