Fuel Economy is terrible with the V6. Just Awful see full Nissan Frontier review

Overrated to what is identified. I know it is a truck but the mileage is far from what Nissan claims. see full Nissan Frontier review
2004 2dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 180-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
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
