2014 Nissan Rogue: Fuel Economy Update for March
April 4, 2014
We're still getting to know our new 2-14 Nissan Rogue and March was our first full month of recording the crossover's fuel economy. After 10 fills, averaging about 9 gallons per fill, we're well shy of the EPA combined rating of 28 mpg.
That said, we achieved 26.4 mpg on our standard test loop run through the local mountain roads, freeways and city streets, and should see better lifetime averages as we pile on the miles with freeway commutes and road trips. We shouldn't waste time. The scant snow that has fallen in our locals and in the Sierras is melting fast.
Best Fill MPG: 26.9
Worst Fill MPG: 18.9
Average Lifetime MPG: 22.3
EPA MPG Rating: 28 combined (25 mpg city/32 mpg highway)
Best Range: 334
Current Odometer: 2,773 miles
