Shadetreemechanic, This is good you found some compareable data. Just to show some difference in driving conditions, My maxima is a second car and gets little use. I only drive 1-2 miles at a time so it is tough city driving with cold engine etc. I still get those mpg's. Last year I had a chance to take a short trip to syracuse ny, about 85 miles to visit relatives. I had three people in car and a trunk full of stuff. On that trip a got close to 35mpg. That was the first highway miles I had driven and none since. That just verified that the car was getting better milage.
We usually drive the 06 altima on trips and local driving. I looked at your driving record and it looks like your mostly highway miles. The other max looks like a hypermiler and may be doing extra steps to increase milage. I don't hypermile.
I see you take good care of the your max. and seem to keep good records.
