Nissan Juke MPG seems to be a hotly debated contest - apparently it may only get 20 mpg.... wouldn't it be expected that this small vehicle would get 30 or 35 mpg? What gives Nissan? I thought the turbos and small displacement motors were the key to a green future?

anyone know what the curb weight is going to be? Any other cars using this engine? If we knew the curb weight we could compare it to another car that uses this engine and has a similar curb weight

Curb weights are mentioned here:
Nissan Juke - 2011 Nissan Juke Test Drive - Popular Mechanics

Popular Mechanics say
Curb weights range from 2923 pounds for a six-speed manual-equipped, front-wheel-drive SV model to 3221 pounds for an all-wheel-drive SL version.

This is from a British website, so those of you abroad can ignore the UK Vehicle Excise Duty figures, but average mpg is mentioned for the different Jukes as well as 0-60mph times, and top speed in miles per hour.

I'm averaging only 24mpg with mostly highway cruising at 80 mph. I have the awd but have only used the 2wd. I'm hoping mpg improves once engine breaks in (less than 1k on odometer). A 300 mile round trip requires a pit stop with only an 11 gallon tank which sucks. It does cruise nicely on the highway though.

I haven't had to fill up yet, but I can't wait to see what kind of mileage I get. I'm used to getting 17mpg from my last car.

keep in mind that the official numbers vary according to drivetrain, with the CVT/FWD combination getting the best mileage.

I think it has a 13.2 gallon tank--only 1 gallon less than my civic

Pretty sure your mpg will improve if you simply slow down

I'm getting anywhere from 20-24 right now with mostly highway driving.

Here's to hoping that improves!

YMMV

Don't expect your best mileage until you get 5-6000 miles on your Juke. It takes that long for modern engines to completely break in.
My first tank averaged 24 MPG, with a combination of city and highway, but I had to learn to keep my foot out of it. Learn to use the instantaneous mileage indicator, and adjust your driving style to maximize those numbers-if you are after mileage. If you are after the fun factor, let her rip-drive it like you stole it, but only expect ~ 20 MPG.

I have 750 miles on mine and my average is 24mpg. I went on a weekend trip and got 27 mpg on the hwy at 75-80 mph. I did notice that the instant mpg guage went up to 29 mpg when i turned off the a/c.

My old car was a 2.4L engine (2005 scion tc) and it was rated at 22/29mpg. I regularly got 33-34mpg when I drove 65-70mph on highways with AC off. If I went 80+, mpg would be around 27-28.

Do you guys think the 1.6L engine in the Juke will require it to be even lower than 65-70 for max efficiency?

Just went through my second tank in the Juke and got 26 mpg driving around town. The AWD wasn't on the entire time, so I was just in fwd. I didn't go on any highways and I did push it a few times. I'm sure if i babied it or went along the highway it would be much more. I was really surprised to get 26 around town, I'm used to driving my lifted jeep wrangler unlimited around and only getting 14...

Ill update on the next fill up since ill be doing a highway trip to VT from long island, so this should give a good idea of highway mileage.
