I believe the manual says not to read too much into the Fuel Economy numbers until you've driven the car 4000 miles. It needs time to learn your driving habits. Everyone's driving habits are different. The tips provided above are good ones. I just bought this car over the weekend and by the time I got home (most of the trip home was freeway), the first reading was 26.7 miles per gallon. The 2012 Pathfinder I just traded in got about 17.5 miles/gallon on average. I also have a Nissan Leaf electric car, and it's the same thing. Sometimes I saw the max range as high as 109 miles, but that was with lots of stopping and going on city streets, but on average it is 96 miles. My suggestion would be to give it time and think about how your driving in order to maximize the fuel economy. Good luck!Report it
