27 mpg!

OK - I know 27 mpg doesn't sound that exciting to most of you, but my last tank of gas - driving to and from Chicago, got 27 MPG.

It was most all freeway driving, except for areas of congestion. I tried to keep it between 55 and no more than 65 on the drive back. I also had that partial radiator block that I put in last week. Once I was really on the freeway for a pretty good while, the temp gauge was a little high. Since nothing really holds it in, I just pulled it out and threw it in the back of the car.

My car had been getting in the low 20's mpg since I have started officially tracking it on this forum.

Hi, ankit - welcome to the site.

You should make a garage entry for your Altima. Start posting your consumption in the fuel log.
