What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Nissan Murano MPG

Nissan Murano Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2010 4dr SUV 265-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD Good fuel economy for an SUV and has powerful engine.
2009 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD Once at a constant speed, the MPG hovers between 27-32- much better then the EPA estimates. My average MPG with combined city and highway driving is 24- 5MPG better than the EPA tests.
2009 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD Good on gas, about 24 mpg on the highway.
2009 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD My previous vehicle was a Mazda Tribute which was a smaller SUV by comparison. Exact same type of driving got me about 17 mpg vs 21 mpg w/the Murano. I get better mileage than the EPA lists for the vehicle because I hypermile when I can.
2009 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD Once you are at a steady speed, the MPG climb to above 30mpg easily, whether at 30 MPH or 75MPH. My average mileage is above 24MPG- 5 MPG better than the EPA estimate
2009 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD My average is well above the EPA estimate of 19- mine is closer to 24-25, with combo city and highway driving. Once at a steady speed, the MPGs hover at 27-33 at both 40mph and 75 mph
2006 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD The In car Computer Tells me that It Averages over 30 MPG on the Highway, and over 22 in the city, the range is just under 600km on 89 octane fuel.
2006 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD I get 21 around town, and 25+ highway which I think is very good for a vehicle this size and weight.
2003 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD good for the size
2003 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD Good due to CVT transmission in balance with its HP.
Nissan Murano Fuel Economy: Cons
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2009 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD Fuel economy in town has been below 16MPG. Itís not bad, but the lack of economy does not deliver exciting performance as it does with other similarly sized SUVís that get comparable mileage.
2009 4dr SUV 265-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD Uses Premium gas
2009 4dr SUV 265-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD Wish it was better with the CVT
2007 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD Excellent.
2006 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD For a midsize SUV is very good at 22-23MPG on the HWY. But still is not much, especially at $3.50 per gallon!
2005 4dr SUV 245-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable CVT AWD Fuel economy is fine for me. I get 22-24mpg without the trailer, a light gas peddle foot, and under 70mph, But if you accelerate fast and drive fast without reguard to MPG you will easily slip into the 18mpg range. With trailer MPG is 13-15.
2003 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT FWD since day one. I did the calculation about the Fuel Economy and it never went over 16MPG. the computer on board is not correct when it tells you 21 or 23 MPG I drove this car since it has 5 miles till now which is almost 100,000 Miles. Fuel Economy 15MPG
2003 4dr SUV 260-hp 3.5L V6 CVT AWD if you are worried about fuel economy buy an economy car. i pay for the power.
