2015 Nissan Murano: Fuel Economy Update for October — Plenty of Miles Help Boost Combined MPG
by John Adolph, Senior Production Manager on November 9, 2015
We added 2,415 miles to the odometer of our 2015 Nissan Murano in October, consuming 97.43 gallons of 87-octane go juice in the process and achieving 24.7 combined mpg for the month — slightly better than the EPA rating. All of the October miles helped nudge the Murano's lifetime up 0.3 mpg, to 22.2 mpg.
These results are still less than the truck's EPA combined rating of 24 mpg, but on the brighter side, we observed a new best fill of 28.0 mpg during a rainy return drive home along the Eastern Sierras. We got this result with the Nissan carrying one passenger, a cargo hold full of luggage and a 65-pound dog asleep in the backseat.
