What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2009 Nissan Pathfinder

2009 Nissan Pathfinder Real Gas Mileage: Cons
2008 4dr SUV 266-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
When compared to the other engines in its class the truck has less than average fuel economy. but with 266 horsepower and 6000lb towing that is to be expected. see full Nissan Pathfinder review
2008 4dr SUV 310-horsepower 5.6L V8
5-speed shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range
The fun of a V8 in a 5k+ lb vehicle had its penalties. Admittedly heavy on the gas, I averaged 13mpg in town and was lucky if I obtained 18mpg on long trips cruising at a steady 75mph. Manual said Premium fuel was recommended but regular worked fine. see full Nissan Pathfinder review
