Yup mine is optimistic also. Maybe it's a nissan/infinity thing. Mine is almost always 2 MPG off give or take a few tenths. So I know the ballpark area of waht I am getting. Do you reset your FE meter everytime you fill-up? I do this (hold my trip button down when it is on the FE screen) and it levels out at about 1/4th of a tank. Anything after that mark I can take as being 2 MPG optimistic.
