Stop complaining and do something about it. :verystupid: That's complaining about having heart pains while eating potato chips.


I guess you just have to weigh what you want more, fun driving (risking a ticket and fines plus accidents) or ecodriving which is the opposite. There is definitely room for improvement for you so even small steps will show positive progress.

Look what my range was a few weeks ago

Driving like that was real tiring and no fun.

I was impressed and happy, cuz its a 16 gallon tank. That equals 17.5 mpg for a V6 in city driving. Good for a heavy truck, in my opinion.
Wow my car is a quarter of that size and i have a 20 gallon tank.......its so kool though because i once saw my tank thing say 570 miles to empty after driving about 50 lol......cruise control at 67=35.8mpg according to the dash. I know they really don't say the right readings but im still happy.

Thats really good though for the QX i would def get so much less if i was driving



This was how much i put in when it said my tank was at 0 on E

17.5 is good for your V6 Sassan. That is about what I was getting on my GC.

Ugh, I get 17-19 on my 240SX, I hate it.

That's after:
plugs/wires/cap/rotor tune up
Royal Purple oil change
Hyper-milling

The sad thing is it's an improvement, before I started hyper-milling the car it would get 14/15mpg. Lame.
