Hi everyone. I got my 2017 Titan SV 4x4 in December 2016. Since then I have had a very difficult time getting anywhere near the advertised fuel efficiency which is supposed to be 15 city, 21 highway, and 18 combined.

I have been getting on average 11mpg or max 13mpg average. I have been calculating this manually by tracking gasoline added and the odometer miles. The good news is that the Titan's computer seems very accurate in matching my 11mpg to 13mpg average.

The bad news is that no matter how conservatively I drive, even without passengers and with an empty bed, I am unable to get 15mpg much less 21mpg on highway driving.

Gas anyone else noticed this?

I haven't done it manually, but with the computer pulled up it helps me keep my foot out of it.
City, I stay around 14 (babying it). If I get on the highway I can push it to 15-16 after 80 miles or so (without resetting it). I'm around 600 miles into it and hoping for better after a little more break in.
I knew coming from an 2007 it wasn't going to be great, but with it flashing right in my face,lol.

I was at 17.8 overall for just under 1000 miles but I took the truck in to get a rain sensor added and apparently they let the truck idle extensively so now its down to 17.6. Mine is a 2wd regular cab.

Last Titan, 2009 4X4 crew cab, best ever was 13. New 2017 2wheel drive crew cab averaging 15.5, in town and 18+ on the hwy. that's just two weeks of ownership and right at 500 miles. I'm more than pleased so far, so much better than the first gen.

I have 11.7 currently. 919 miles so far. I have progressive snapshot so I don't drive it hard or anything like that. About 20 min stop and go traffic to and from work. Pretty disappointed but hopeful it'll improve as it gets seasoned.

Side note, I hated that damn snapshot.

Oh I friggin despise it. Run a yellow light or complete a "hard stop?" "DISCOUNT IT IS!!" That is my life currently. May can't come soon enough.

I'm only averaging 11-12 mpg city driving; only got about 15 highway miles. I'm definitely hoping for better mileage as I only have 700 miles on it. My 2009 flex fuel got better mileage.

"Advertised fuel economy ". That makes me laugh, the Ford Egoboost's numbers say 35 mpg highway, but I have two friends that own them and the best they get is roughly 20. While towing, they average about 15. Bottom line, the manufacturer's numbers are somewhat optimistic, if not deliberately misleading. It's a V8, and the Titan is a heavy truck. The mileage will suck regardless what the window sticker says....

It will get better as it breaks in. I barely get 16-17 on highway in a 2011. Be happy!!

My 17 Platinum 2WD gets really good mpg on the freeway, easily 20 mpg, in the city however, pretty poor, usually about 12-13 in stop and go traffic, on a rare smooth going day I've hit 15. Average has been around 14.5, definitely nowhere near the 18 mpg average claimed by Nissan.

Just over 10K and averaging around 18mpg. That is closer to speed limit highway driving. Running around 80 drops it a lot.

Official mpg numbers are only good for comparison purposes. Nobody actually gets those numbers in any vehicle.

I've been keeping track by doing the actual math since I got my truck in July. I fill up, take the gas added divided by the miles on the trip. I started around 16.59 and now i'm down to 13.34. I started off well but then I got into the whole "learning transmission" and started to try and drive it hard to get rid of the stuttering/shifting issues (which obliviously didn't do ****) which ruined any decent gas mileage I was getting. I really need to stop in and have the new TSB flashed, see if that helps.
