Maybe those numbers show up if you drive the truck around like it's just a mode of transportation...

I'm considering buying a Titan... this is the first time I've seen a question pertaining to actual mpg results. It'll weigh heavily on my decision. Thanks...
p.s Overall, do you like the Titan?
Over 12000 miles since May 2004
I have kept my mpg on every gas up... Here are my numbers:
current average: 13.41 mpg
low : 11.1 mpg // local streets
high: 18.13 // long trip -- mostly freeways
I currently have an 02 Frontier Crew Cab V6 "barely" getting 18 mpg and that's babying it !
So, I figured if the Titan can get the estimated mpg of 14/18 (on the sticker), I might as well get the Titan with all that extra horsepower. But, if I get what you all are getting for mpg (12 - 14 ), I seriously have to reconsider purchasing the Titan.
Thanks for any input and good luck w/ your Titans!
Approx 2500 miles.
50-50 of city/highway (60-65MPH)
Average 13.5 - 14.0
Mostly in the 13.5-13.7 range
Little disappointed in the MPG as my past Chevy, Dodge & Ford full size 4x4's always delivered at least what was on the EPA sticker.
However, this truck is a blast to drive. A couple extra bucks at the pump is worth it for the performance this truck delivers.
1. Nope, 4X2
2. I do mostly local driving, but my daily 25mile commute to/fro work (yes, I commute with this Titan ;-) ) with moderate traffic on freeway.
3. Mostly city. I guess 60% city, 40% highway
4. No cap or tonneau
I dont baby the acceleration at all. Though originally I was slightly bummed the mileage wasnt the 18ish all the time, having it around 13-14 is ok with the perf of this truck.
I used to have a Van (Dodge Grand Caravan V6 which I got avg 17mph). This Titan is way more fun to drive (less some problems you probably have read already).
Also, inregards to mileage, I've heard that using Tornado product and diff't filtering may help with mpg by a couple mpg -- can't validate since I dont know much about it.
Hope you become a Titan-er too but if not, thanx for your interest.
Nissan Titan: Problems & Solutions topic.
The new Titan (04 CC LE 4x4, bigtow) is so far about the same at 4k miles. Of course I've only had it in the winter, so can't comment on what it will do with summer tires instead of winter tires. However, it seems to hang in the 12-14 mpg range in mixed driving, snow tires, and occational 4WD use. Also, lots of cold weather and idling.
Its still a bit better than our Ram 3500 V10 with its 8.5 mpg average.
We also own a Ford Focus.......have to with these 2 beasts on the hunt all the time for the nearest gas station.
Oh and no, premium fuel is not recommended.
I just installed dual exhaust and the thing sounds sic, as in awesome. Have seen a slight increase in mpg and when i put this intake on will see another 1 or 2 plus more ponies is nice. Mine was a later model year make with just tow pkg. so I'm sorry to hear about other problems you guys and gals are having. I have 8k on odo and no glitches as yet. I stand behind this product 110% as long as the dealer can gitter dun! which they are slow around here but efficient as any other. Last note, no offense but you guys must not have done your homewwork b4 you bought. You got more than you paid for first of all and you never buy first off line, wait for Nissan to work out bugs. And you get better deal later in year but I know options are a priority and like me YOU just had to have one. haha Overall, I feel I as well as you guys and gals, minor problems and all got a awesome product. Besides the agressive looks and that exhaust note, it's just KOOL as hell to see the face of the big 3 owners as you SMOKE EM' off the light! Good Luck all......
