2008 Nissan Maxima Real Gas Mileage: Pros

It is between 25-29.2 on the highway depending on headwinds. It seems sensitive to wind, mileage-wise. In town is excellent. In 4k miles the worst tank has been 23.2 when it was brand new and very cold out. City mileage is understated in my opinion. see full Nissan Maxima review

City driving is brutal on mpg. If you get 12 mpg you are doing well. Highway miles are great - over 30, so great on trips, stinks for commuting. see full Nissan Maxima review

Not as good in town as expected. Get around 20-22 mpg in town, 25-28 on hi-way see full Nissan Maxima review
