2008 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 154-horsepower 2.5L I4

Averaging 22mpg for th full 57,000 miles I have driven. Winter mileage is less and summer is more Using winter snow and ice tires in winter months. Hwy tires in summer months. see full Nissan Frontier review
2008 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 154-horsepower 2.5L I4

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

2013 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6

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

Well it has a 4.0L V6, so I guess I should have expected it. It does have nice power though. see full Nissan Frontier review

Even though it is a powerful V6, economy was on par with much more powerful V8 engines. see full Nissan Frontier review

I cant complain about the gas mileage it was around 22mpg when new but with a lift and tires I have sucked some of that away 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

Just completed a 7,000 mile trip, 2 adults & lightly, fully loaded bed. Best mileage 24 mpg, lowest 22 mpg. Typical town/freeway mix has been 22-23 mpg. Flat terrain, easy driving. see full Toyota Tacoma review
2009 4dr Crew Cab 6ft bed 236-horsepower 4.0L V6

Even with the V6, the fuel economy hovers around 22MPG with mixed city/highway driving. A lot cheaper to refuel than a full size. see full Toyota Tacoma review

I thought the fuel economy, for a truck, was excellent. It gets 5mpg better than a Honda Ridgeline. see full Toyota Tacoma review

The 4 cyl specifically for a truck is great. According to my computerized Scanguage I am getting a consistent 21-25 mpg per tank with all around driving and commuting. 21 gallong tank. see full Toyota Tacoma review

I get 21mpg in the warm months and only 18mpg in the winter. I use the 4wd a lot when roads are snowy or slippery. I had hoped for better gas mileage and find it ridiculous that there aren't better truck engines available from any of the manufacturers. A turbo-diesel four-cylinder would be much more practical in the Tacoma. see full Toyota Tacoma review

I expected better fuel economy for a small truck. But none of the trucks get good economy. The manufacturers need to get with the program on truck fuel economy. see full Toyota Tacoma review
