    The unrefulled range on my Maxima is amazing!

    The combination of 20 Gallon fuel tank and CVT transmission makes it possible:

    - "503 Miles range" showed up on my Trip computer after gassing up just now.

    And this week I drove on 1 tank:

    -Norfolk, VA locally around for a week,
    -THEN Back to DC,
    -then around DC quite a bit all weekend
    -THEN back to Norfolk VA and around Norfolk for a couple of days..

    All on one tank of gas

    You must be using some of Mark's hypermiling tricks!
    If someone blows up a school with a bomb they go after the bomber ... if someone shoots up a school they go after the gun.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    The trip from Norfolk to DC I drove pretty gently .. maybe a steady 80 mph cruise at 28 mpg

    On the trip back down I drove around 90 mph with some aggressive passing and supra legal speeds when passing (my boss knows about this forum so i cannot be more specific as to the actual speeds attained... but those who know me will know..)

    In town I drove gentle in Norfolk and moderately aggressive in DC/Alexandria...

    Hmmm, a guy with a penchant for forced induction Z cars drives fast/aggressively - who'd a thunk that

    Impressive MPG all things considered. In Mark's hands it would probably be pulling down Pirus like numbers !
