Nissan QuestionsThere is no way this car gets 40 mpg on the highway. Does anyone else agree??? (1 answer)
I drove from CA to AZ & had to stop after 235 miles to refuel & I used cruise control driving the speed limit the entire way. 10.6 gallon tank x 40 mpg = over 400 miles. I got more like 22 miles per gallon. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME FEEDBACK. AM I MISSING SOMETHING???
Same bulbs work for turn signals and hazards.
I just replaced the spark plugs, fixed a cylinder misfire, and replaced the TPS, any suggestions on this issue?
