The best so far has been 27 mpg. The worst 19mpg. Average for over 6,000 miles of mostly highway driving has been 23 mpg. At 17,800 miles on odometer the milage is down to 22 mpg. I added 4 new snow tires that have reduced mpg. see full Nissan Frontier review

I keep a detailed log of fuel economy. I commute on hour each way, every day. 50% of the time is spent at 65 mph on the highway, and the remainder between 50 and 60 on 2-lane country roads. Only a few stops in between. Very consistently getting 21.5 to 22.3 mpg. I rarely rev it above 4000 RPM - only when passing someone. That happens maybe once or twice per tank. I am underwhelmed by the fuel economy. Full-sized trucks with larger, stronger V8s get similar economy. see full Nissan Frontier review

Well, the EPA ratings are 15 city 20 Highway. The salesman I dealt with says it is easy to get 20 Highway, and I am not an aggressive driver. The V6 is geared low enough that it does 1800 rpm at 60MPH, so my light foot will help here. We will see ! see full Nissan Frontier review

Average 17/21 during the summer. A friends 96 F-150 (also 4x4) gets 16/20 with a V-8. Expected much better mileage from a small truck. see full Nissan Frontier review
