i know the altima is not going to set any records - but as it is paid for and in great running condition, I am happy to see consistant low 30's for my commute. More is always better - but without something drastic for MODS for the city driving, i don't think i can get there. but that is OK. Like Tony Raine above - use this is the platform for improving skills and "the nut behind the wheel" - so when i DO need a new car i can make a HUGE gain ( better skills applied to a higher PMG starting point)

Best City Tank - 8/31/09- 34.3 MPG (EPA= 20)

In effort to drive less:
