I'm newly registered but have been lurking for awhile. I have a '13 Nissan Versa S sedan with the 1.6 L engine and a five speed standard. No tach, but I do have an instant MPG readout in my car's info center. My normal gas mileage in a 50/50 city-highway tank fill is 37, which is more than the EPA highway rating for my car. I have been trying some of the tips I've read on here, I recently averaged 52 mpg on a trip to see family where the route is 1/2 Interstate and 1/2 rural hilly highway. I time stoplights, coast downhill, chug uphill with a constant throttle position, 'dfco coast' up to stopsigns, and turn off the engine at stoplights that I know last a long time. My default speed on the highway is 55 mph unless it's posted 65 or higher, then it's 5 mph below the limit unless I can draft someone going the limit.

The Nissan gets the best mileage of any car I've ever had, handily beating my old three cylinder 92 Subaru Justy.
