I've had my NV200 for almost a year now, mileage is up over 12,000.

Over the weekend I took a 500 mile trip on interstates through the mountains on the east coast of the USA. Total mileage was 1,092 and total fuel use 44.9 gallons for an overall trip mileage of 24.3. Pretty happy with that as most of it is high speed cruise, 80-85 mph.

Individual tank mileage's ranged from just over 20 to a high of 26.47 on one tank of > 300 miles. There is a wide variance because of the hills I was traveling across, grades as steep as 6 and 7% drag the mileage down but the NV climbs them like a locomotive with the cruise set at 85 :smile:

I couldn't agree more as I just got back from a 9300+ mile, 28 day vacation trip from Florida to the Northwest. The NV worked out great from me and the doggies. We camped (RV'd?) for all but 4 of the days. The little van was perfect for getting in and out of national parks. I only needed an electrical hookup and only ran into one occasion where I couldn't find a campsite. Even when full, campgrounds always seem to be able to find a place for me. My mileage was 26.3. As mdbuilder says, the van does great in the mountains. Passing on two lane mountain roads wasn't a problem.

The only issue I had was with the radio, in particular, the satellite portion of the radio. The dealer has to, yet again, replace the radio/navigation system.

My business customers looking at this model are going to be very happy to hear that these figures are being reported by people actually using the car! It's going to make financing the car a lot more worthwhile when they realise that they're actually going to get quite a fair bit of economy from using this vehicle.
