Fuel MPG is affected by #1 driver habits, #2 tire pressure, and lastly poor engine control system operation or a worn engine or defective fuel delivery system in the case of the diesel.

SOURCE: hand brake nissan pathfinder

If you lift the hand brake you should find an adjustment nut (I think it is 10MM). Tighten that and you should be good to go. Be careful, it doesn't take much to adjust - turn gradually/slowly.

i hope i was able to help you with your problem! tc!

How do i reduce or control fuel consumption in nissan pathfinder


Make sure it has a good tune-up. Also, the type of tires on the vehicle will sometimes alter fuel consumption. Drive smoothly and consistently. Avoid accelerating and stopping quickly. Certain fuel additives may also help.

Pathfinder 1997 fuel consumption problem


Take the vehicle to an auto parts store and have them read the computer faults Is the yellow check engine light on ? If you are lucky replace air filter, replace spark plugs that might help. If it is a high mileage vehicle it's likely to be an oxygen sensor, or the converter might be plugged up. If either or both of these are present the computer will stop managing (reducing) fuel flow and go to open loop and all that fuel gushing thru the engine will ruin your gas mileage and spark plugs !

My 2001 ti pathfinder v6 ,has bad fuel consumption,it only gets about 560 k to the tank ,what is normal .and can i do anything .


If you are getting at least 17 mpg in the city, and 20 on the highway, then you are doing good. The Pathfinder is not known for its fuel economy. I own a Pathfinder and if I can keep the RPM's under 2k then my mileage increases.

2005 Nissan Pathfinder Gas guage malfunction


If you don't get offered a fix, this is a problem you can learn to live with.

Get used to filling the tank to the brim (that may not be so unusual in your part of the world - certainly is here, the way they tax fuel!) and resetting the trip counter on your dash every time you fill up.

For the first few times, fill up after a couple of hundred miles; note the amount of fuel it takes and the distance you've driven. Divide miles by gallons to get your average fuel consumption (average this over a few goes to get a reliable figure).

Find out from the user manual how much fuel the tank holds (if it gives several figures, the one you want is "useable" fuel). Multiply this capacity by the consumption you calculated earlier, and you'll get a very good estimate of the distance you can go before you run out.

Now all you need to do is to keep an eye on the trip counter, and remember to refuel every time you get to (say) 75% of your theoretical maximum distance.

This method has worked well for me over a number of vehicles, none with a particularly effective fuel gauge.
