2011 Nissan Juke SL AWD: The $50 Fill Up
March 24, 2011
Remember when a $50 fill-up was rare, and it could only be accomplished by running a big truck or SUV dry?
Well, admittedly the Juke's fuel gauge had hit bottom and the remaining range number was a flashing "---" but I was still suprised by the fuel bill this compact crossover managed to ring up.
Sure, it was premium fuel, which is only recommended for this car and not required. But half the fun of driving the Juke is watching that boost gauge spool up in the central display while the little trucklet rockets past slower traffic. Gotta pay to play.
For those who care, this trip meter divided by the gallons it took to fill it equates to 20.2 mpg.
