What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2001 Nissan Sentra

2001 Nissan Sentra Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2002 4dr Sedan 175-horsepower 2.5L I4
6-speed manual FWD
With MPG levels of 26 city/ 28 highway (even though you can go as far as 32 mpg highway and obtain an average of 26 mpg on mixed driving with the occasional engine redlining), the fuel economy of this car is pretty adequate. On stock form it will not drain your wallet, even when Nissan has the ECU tuned in the SE-R and SE-R Spec V to run a bit richer than in the Altima. It's no Prius but it's not as bad as, let's say, a modified Mazda rotary engine. Modifications like cold air intake and header will decrease some MPG but the change isn't too drastic either. see full Nissan Sentra review
