Ok, to be honest I do not think I am going to hit 30 miles per gallon while I have time to drive the 2013 Nissan Rogue.  Do I think I could.. YES! If 90% of my driving was on the highway I do not see why not.  You have seen my commute to work from my previous post As I drive the Nissan Rogue. (if you had read that) Well, my efforts have seen some fruition!  Here is my latest accomplishment in the world of Nissan Rogue gas mileage..

2013 Nissan Rogue Gas Mileage

At nearly 3,000 miles I have achieved 26.5 Miles Per Gallon in my 2013 Nissan Rogue as of yesterday when I took this picture.

I I did take a trip for lunch today to Steve’s Pizzaria in West Boylston.  Side note- If you have not tried this place.  I do highly recommend it for the over-sized subs.  So yesterday  I drove to work, home, and the gym.  I have decided is it once again that time to try to live a healthier lifestyle.  Even if it is just a little bit.  Every bit counts right?  If you want to hear more about my journey into the gym and trying to eat better in a car dealership either comment on one of our social media accounts or comment on this post.  I have been considering doing that as it may help more than just me.  But I would like to hear form you about that.  Ok, back the original program material.  😉  Below you will find a photo mapping out my trip for lunch.  As you may notice there is some highway involved and I think that is a direct result of what you find directly below.

Trip for lunch to Steves pizza

*** NEWSFLASH!  3,000 miles and….

2013 Nissan Rogue Gas Mileage 26.6

 

So with a short jaunt to grab my BLT and a few others lunch today I climbed to 26.6 Miles Per Gallon in my 2013 Nissan Rogue!

Not sure if you are a fan of our Bertera Nissan Facebook page but I have been posting every so often what I am getting for mileages in my 2013 Nissan Rogue.  A few fans that have gave me their input and I have had a few discussions with lead me to believe that 25.5 was going to be where I would end up for gas mileage.  That was the average I encountered with information I had gathered.  I had put a post out on our Bertera Nissan Google + page but the only response to that was the fan did not play the gas mileage game. I am very interested to find out if any of you play this game.  Do you?  Or do you know someone who mite?  Let me know in the comments!  I would love for any of you to take a picture like this and share it with us.

As always thanks for reading!

Quick Tip – Nissan Battery – Bertera Nissan

So something came up on our Bertera Nissan FaceBook Fan Page where a car battery would drain after being left for a period of time.  Now something that is not always recommended but can be a great idea if your Nissan is left unattended for a period of time.  Even if your Nissan is not left for long periods of time the Battery Tender can extend the life of your battery.  What really happens when you turn “off” your car?  Well even those we believe it to be off..  There are still items at work.  Even the smallest items that we may never ever think of like the radio holding your stations do take the smallest amount of energy.  Even you miles on the dash take up a little bit.  Over time these little items that we never think about do add up.  They create what is called a draw.  As they draw power from the battery.  Now over night it is not a big deal. In some cases a couple of days or even more may not cause you any alarm.  You get in and your car starts.  But it could cause a dead battery even if your car is left “Off” for an extended period of time.  I am sure you wonder how long it takes but there is not really a gauge for this. So, if you plan to leave your car for anything over a day/night you might want to look into a Battery Tender.  As I stated before even if not you may as it could extend the life of your battery.  A simple fact is that your car battery does not want to be run down.(discharged)  It wants to have a fairly stable amount of charge.  The more run down it gets and the less of a charge it will end up holding.  And when the battery no longer wants to hold a charge. Well that is when it is time to replace the battery.  By placing a Battery Tender on your Nissan it will aim to keep the battery at a full charge.  That makes for a happy battery. I can not say that this will make your battery last forever because it will not, but it could help prolong its life. As well as not leave you with a dead battery, and car, in the am when we are all rushing out the door.  We can only hope this tip can help a few Nissan owners out!  To help those of  you who do not know what a Battery Tender is here is a photo with a brief description.
