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 see full Nissan Murano review

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. see full Nissan Murano review

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. see full Nissan Murano review
