    well If I am only going to get 20mpg out of a 4 cyl truck might as well have some fun in a 370z. Most of you will say if it was mpg you want why did you buy the truck then. I really had no idea how piss poor mpg this truck really gets. I needed something that I could haul some things around and was hoping to use it back and fourth to work. Well with gas here in CA above 3.10 a gallon and rising every effin hour it seams, I decided might as well enjoy my life. Good luck to all and thanks for all your help.

    20mpg is kind of poor for the 2.7 and very poor for the 2.4. The TT fuel economy poll shows most 2.7 owners get 22-25mpg. Did you have ridiculous wheels/tires or drive it like a street racer? Regardless, I hope you enjoy the Z, they are a truly fun sports car.

    Silverback, you should have gotten BOTH.
    That's what I did.:burnrubber:

    I have a base 2.7 five-lugger that gets 25 mpg, and a 2009 370 that CAN get 27 on the highway... but since I can't seem to keep my foot out of it I average around 23.

    I was all ready to get a Nismo 370 and then my transfer case on my dakota nuked itself on the highway and did some transmission damage. I was hoping to have a truck for trips into the mountains, hauling mtn & dirt bikes, and Home Depot runs, and the Z as a daily driver but such is life. Gotta have a truck, so instead I got rid of the Dak and got a Taco.

    Enjoy the Z!

    It cost too much to put regular gas in at $3.10/gallon and 20mpg. So add a bigger car payment + $3.35/gal for 93 at 23 mpg.....Proffit???
