I get about 12 mpg in the city and 15 on the highway.

I get this using the real method by dividing mileage by gallons. Dont trust the computer as it is way off.

Yes that is safe to say, but I use cruise as much as possible and drive at the speed limit.

My computer is acutally dead on with my real calculations. The distance to empty is off, (never been a car with a correct one) but the mpg figure is dead on.

You did not specify 4X2 or 4x4 but my 4x4 gets 13.8 avg for combined and fairly short hiway runs. I did get about 16.5 on a long trip to New Jersey before. I have never calculated manually.

Right in the same ball park. Good is 13mpg around town. On the hwy, the best I've seen is 17 - central California, nice and flat, running under 75.

Bear in mind that the Armada outweighs the Sequoia by 750lbs (6000lbs v 5280lbs).

I get about 15 in mixed situations, but i average 14 because i usually drive this thing pretty hard. On a 100 mile economy run i averaged 20mpg it was a steady cruise at 75 ac on 3 people in the car i just didnt brake and kept a steady speed.

Man 15 mpg is piss-poor. Yeah, I know I keep harping on it but diesel is the answer. Nissan have Renault and Nissan Diesel as resources so let's hope the 2007 Amrada Diesel is as great as their Endurance gas engine.

These are the stats of the 4L M/B 420CDI V8 common-rail diesel and what Nissan should be trying to emulate:

0-60 in 6.1 seconds
150 mph (limited)
315 Hp
540 Lb-ft
25mpg !!!

You forgot to mention the $76k base (gas engine) price

Why? The GL is a different class to the Armada. Of course it will be $30k more than a QX.

If you look at the price of the M/B E320 vs the E320CDi you will not see a significant price difference. Also the Jetta TDi is only hundreds more than it's gasoline counterpart.

Point is, is that Nissan could deliver a diesel Titan/Armada at a cost close to it's gasoline counterpart and should not fall into the 'heavy duty' trap for pricing. Let's hope not.

...repeat after me: TWENTY FIVE MILES PER GALLON !!!!!

If you think that Nissan is going to put anything less than a full blown truck type diesel in the Titan/Armada you are dreaming, do you think they want to make the Toyota T-100 like mistake and have an underpowered truck compared to the competition. Domestic diesel options range form $5600 for Dodge with a manual trans to GM at $7600 with the mandatory Allison upgrade. I am sure the diesel option from Nissan will be at least $5K and that will buy a LOT of gasoline. I myself am buying a cherry used Dodge HO 6spd Cummins from a good friend very soon and will become an oil burner.

Diesel Armada - bring it on

I'm sure the higher fuel costs contributed to slow sales; but i also believe that the market has been saturated by Gm, Ford and Chrysler dumping their trucks & SUV's with their hughes discounts and special programs. (I know, I am have a hell of a time trying to sell my used Explorer at a decent price, have you looked at the used SUV section lately)?
I also agree with you a Diesel would help sales greatly, provided they charge a reasonable price, and hopefully do not merely stuff a Cummins into it and charge 5K primium. I am sure Nissan & the present US engine manufacturer can develop and manufacture a modern, reliable and efficient Diesel engine for the armada - they did a great job on the gas engine why not a Diesel as well.
As far as MPG, I get 16-17; 15% city the rest interstate. Regular fuel only.
Today our gas prices have dropped to $1.99 per gal. Woo Whoo!!
