hi there,


had my 2018 SV gas for 3 weeks. still in happy phase with it. the ride is so smooth and cabin is very quiet. haven't towed anything but got break-in completed (1000km)



combined fuel eco 15.8L/100km (~15mpg). mixed highway + some bumper to bumper traffic everyday during rush hour commuting to work, dropping off kids to school. i don't heavy-foot it neither baby it.



Given this is a 6400lbs truck and I also get plenty of acceleration when needed, i think this is a pretty good number.


as agreed by most of gasser owners the only thing is Nissan should have made the fuel tank 25% bigger.

I am at 800ish miles on the OD. Best MPG was 20.3 on a 30 mile trip but overall avg. is 16.7. Combined freeway / city driving. For a 4x4 I am pleased with the mileage as well. Still need to do a trip to really get the fill for highway MPG.

Hi Jim, any updates to this. We pick up our 18 XD gas this coming Monday. Going from an F150 to this so expecting it to drink more fuel but hoping it’s not too bad....

Nearing 800 miles on my 5.6 and I've been averaging about 13.8 in suburban area commuting. Haven't done much highway cruising yet. Really didn't want to anyways as the break in recommendations are a mixture of speeds.
I am preparing to do some towing snowmobiles soon.

I've never met a truck owner who said "They just put too big a tank on this truck, I sure wish it was smaller and held less fuel"

In fact, short of seriously sweating every extra pound of weight on my race bikes, I'm hard pressed to think of a single occasion when I wouldn't have liked to be carrying more gas.

But you gotta face the fact that buyers also bitch about heavier curb weight, or the extra plumbing and electrics/pumps for a second tank, or the shape the vehicle had to be to accommodate a bigger tank, or the extra cost for material, and if you've never seen the aftermath of an accident with one of those old trucks that carried fuel outside the frame rails you should count yourself lucky.

Despite it taking a few minutes out of my travel time I actually welcome the need to take a stop, get out of the seat and pump some gas.

My 2005 and then my 2010 Titans (5.6 gas motor) used to get 14-16 in town and if I was behaving around 18 on the highway. Sometimes it seemed it didn't make any difference what my driving habits were, just kept getting the same mileage numbers. Seeing that the updated notor makes more power I think it's great that the mileage didn't get worse. More power from the same amount of gas, good deal.

I'm betting you'll see a bit of improvement after a few more thousand miles as well.

Keep On Truckin

Just took a 600 mile highway trip. Averaged about 16. One stretch of 200 miles saw near 17.
I am now at 2,200 miles. Hoping to see it rise a bit after the first oil change.

I'm nearing on 9,000 miles and have consistently been getting 14-16 in suburban/rush hour traffic. Unfortunately, my MPG still says 11 from towing probably 1/3rd of my total miles.

When I've taken highway trips without towing, I've gotten anywhere from 18-24. However, that 24 was going from Hill City, SD to Rapid City, SD with no wind. If anyone has driven that, you'll know it's probably 70-80% downhill.

I changed to a high moly, high zinc content SN 0W-20 motor oil. ENEOS Racing Street 0W-20 (the name is a bit miss leading). My avg MPG is up to 17.1 in very mixed driving. This is an increase from 15.8 MPG using Pennzoil Platinum. High moly oils are what the Japanese auto makers all use. JX Nippon Oil's - ENEOS Racing Street 0W-20 and Idemitsu's ZEPRO Eco Medalist Advanced Moly 0W-20 are high moly oils.

High moly and zinc oils help control wear and reduce friction - and the 5.6l engine uses a lot of gears and chains, and is know to be tough on oil, so reduction in wear and friction is a very good thing.

Zinc not bad for the catalyzer? or is that just the diesel ones?

Hey I was thinking of changing all my fluids through a very light weight oil synthetic transfer case fluid, front and rear end, power steering fluid, eng oil. Do you have any documentation to see that it went up and how much.
