Nissan Navara: Fuel consumption

Asked by Sebastian Azagra

I am concerned about the amount of fuel my 2011 Nissan Navara diesel is consuming. It's stickered values are 7.5, 9.0 and 11.7 L/100 km for extra-urban, combined and urban driving conditions respectively, but the best I have been able to achieve has been 10.9L/ 100 km on a long trip down the highway with the cruise control set at 100 km/h. I notified the dealer at both the 1000 km and 10,000 km services and their response has been that the engine is still needs to running in. The car is now due for its 20,000 km service and there has been no noticeable improvement. Is there something that can be done to solve this problem, or have Nissan fix or replace a faulty product?

Tell the dealer of your concerns when you take it in for servicing and ask that they do a full diagnostic check on the car. Don't accept their view that it's still running in, that's a way of fobbing you off. It's possible you have a faulty sensor that's throwing the fuel economy out.
