Just wondering, to all 3.5 se owners, do you guys average 24 miles per gallon? I got in a wreck and since I got my car back it reads out that it is only getting 22.1 mpg. Is something wrong?

Im only getting 20.9 and I have only 2395 miles on it. I also have a 5speed. Does the mph go up or no? This really sucks if its really only 20.9 mpg.

I get 30-31mpg on straigth highway driving (which is very rare) but in my normal week of about 250 stop and go traffic, and about 100 35-55mph miles, I get 24.5-26mpg.

so, what i'm getting from all this is that our trip computers must be [email protected]#*ed up. oh, and my mpg just dropped from 22.1 to 21.8 and i filled up my tank and the computer read 352 dte. should we be worried that we are getting below the "average" mpg?

What it means is that you are enjoying your V-6 too much. :) The lowest dte I've seen was after 14 1/4 mile runs, and then it was still about 330. The highest is around 560. Usually, it's around 460 when I fill up.

Worst in over a year when I filled up yesterday....a little under 20mpg city....I am going to attribute that to the many miles of slippage in the snow

Gas mileage

The integrated computer is a piece of junk and undependable. I think Nissan designed it to read high so most people will think they are getting better gas mileage. My computer shows between 21.1 - 21.4 mpg, no matter what. But I track actual usage with a spreadsheet. Here are my stats for 13481.8 miles:
----------------------------------
2002 3.5 SE auto w/K&N filter
Gallons used: 638.27
Cost: $1,154.98
Avg $/gal: 1.806
True Avg mpg: 19.51
Best tank avg mpg: 21.32
Worst tank avg mpg: 16.95
Computer error has ranged from 0.37% to 20.8%!
Driving: 70-80% freeway mainly btwn 65-80 mph (but known to hit 90-100 for short bursts :)
----------------------------------
remember, this is real data tracked in a speadsheet based on actual figures taken at each fill-up.

Sounds like someone's leasing and writing their car off for business :-D
